This is a pretty bold tasting tea. I enjoy it’s strength and I will try to post a longer review when I have more time to analyze this one.

To me, it seems complex and I really like it.

A really good tea.
To me this is a sit and relax tea. But not a sleepy tea, although it comes off more as an herbal tea than a white tea. It’s more a thinking tea.
The citrus flavor gave me a bit of a zing and got my mind working. The citrus flavor was the more prominent flavor. There were also some less notable bright floral tastes. I can’t say too much about this one since I used only slightly less than a teaspoon for an 8 oz cup. Next time I’ll use a larger portion and steep it longer or use hotter water.
I can see this as a tea that I would drink often in the summer time.

A very good, smooth tea, and a hint of sugar complements it nicely.

I love this tea. They say it tastes like golden raisins, which it may, but since raisins are my arch-nemeses I say it tastes like dried fig. In any case, it is a delicious, fruity, sweet oolong that everyone should try.

Sweet to the point where I thought I put sugar in it. therefore it takes sugar really well (something i normally don’t do to teas). a bit mellow. it went really well with the lapsang souchong marinated thin-cut steak i had for dinner. it was a perfect balance. a great tea but not one i’d want to have daily.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

drank Ceylon OP1 by Teas Etc
48 tasting notes

I’ve had some Ceylon teas that I’ve really enjoyed in the past, particularly the first Ceylon I tried Ceylon Neeraja from Teavana. So that set the bar for most other Ceylon teas I’ve had.

I steeped this tea for two minutes and it seemed a bit too long. The tea came out a bit strong. Although I redeemed it by putting a teaspoon of milk in my cup. This tea takes milk very well. I love the smell. It has a sweet barky smell to it. I enjoy the malty taste but right now it’s just too strong. I have to make a new pot of this and either steep a smaller amount of tea or lower the time.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 15 sec

Question for you…how much Loose Leaf did you use and in what sized cup for a 2 min infusion!? I tend to oversteep and go over with the amount and I that it was a little on the light side…would love to see/taste that bolder flavor if I can get it!?

I used 4 teaspoons of tea. The leafs are thin and wiry. So when I put two teaspoons into the tea strainer it seemed like it wasn’t enough. So I added more. I’ll do a two minute steep time and just do 2 teaspoons. Next time.

Also It was in a 2 1/2 cup tea pot.

I think I used a about 1.5 T for the 8-ounce cup I had…or so…

I am really not a fan of lemongrass so I should have known this wouldn’t be something I’d like. Smell was overpowering. I thought maybe taste would be ok but I just couldn’t get over the smell. I think I’ll stay away from the lemon varieties.

Received as a sample with my last order. The (over) use of lemon grass produces a smell reminiscent of lemon scented cleaner. It lacks a fresh flavor, tastes artificial. Wasn’t able to even finish the pot. Sadly, it’s going to take some hard work to remove the smell from my pot :( …won’t miss it when it’s gone…

Ew, sounds like it would be better put to use as a deordorizer or a sachet of some kind. Or compost. :p

This is another tea that I enjoy more every time I try it. Great for multiple infusions, seems to get sweeter with each steep.

This is really delicious. Dug this out of my tea-closet, and so glad I did. There are a lot of indifferent Nilgiris out there. This is not one of them.

I’m trying to play catch up today. I finished off my tin of this making a cold brewed iced tea. It’s quite good cold brewed, no trace of bitterness and just a hint of orange. I’m definitely going to buy some more of this tea, I think I miss it already! I brewed it overnight in the fridge.

Preparation
Iced 5 min, 45 sec

Yesterday as I went to my dentist appointment in the afternoon, the thermometer in the car said the temperature was 80 degrees! With this temperature to inspire me, I’m going to start trying a lot of my teas iced. I cold brewed this one all day in the fridge, and it was really good! I was able to get a second glass of tea from the same leaves as well. It was very mellow when cold brewed. You could tell the orange was there, but it was almost subliminal.

I will probably be preparing this tea again as a cold-brewed iced tea.
