Described as a “Rich and smooth heritage-style loose leaf tea”. I was expecting more than the tea delivered. Colour – bright and golden. Taste – ok but nothing to distinguish it from other run of the mill teas. Not going to be a repeat purchase..

Like it says on the packet – its a rich dark and complex tea. Colour is light straw and slightly yellow. This is deceptive because rather than being a light delicate tea, which the colour suggests, the flavour explodes in the mouth from the first sip. Hard to pinpoint exactly what flavours because there are so many in the overlapping complexity of different tastes. Brewed a second time the flavours were no less pronounced, but easier to separate on the palate. An all round wonderful tea and worthy of exploration. as a foot note – the tea was described as “organic” by Ringtons.

Relogged because I’ve figured it out.

This tea is fussy. Or maybe I’m just used to teas that can take abuse, IDK, but basically if you go even slightly over 2 1/4 minutes it’s overbrewed (I mean 2 1/2 minutes brings out a bitter note.)

It’s actually kinda nice if handled carefully.

I’m not impressed, which saddens me a litle because I like Rington’s other teas. It’s very grassy and light, so someone else may adore it but I prefer deeper and more malty flavours from an oolong. It’s drinkable though, so I’ll finish the rest of the bag.
