If you like your full bodied black teas, this is your cup! This tea is full flavored, lightly sweet, and perfect with a dash of sugar and some milk in the morning. This might become my new go-to morning tea.

Very good tea, not simple at all by its taste. Here’s more http://www.teablr.com/?p=493

I had very high expectations for this tea based on the reviews and so I was mildly disappointed when it did not live up to them. Perhaps my own anticipation and expectation of flavor got in the way. As the tea cooled somewhat, the somewhat malty and very dark chocolate flavors came out, reminding me somewhat of the Numi chocolate puerh I had this morning. But the deep chocolate flavor in this tea did not taste like something added to the tea. I like the tea, but do not love it. I think it would be interesting base for adding other flavors (fans of this tea might think I am crazy).

No not crazy. I think I loved it more back when I was new to tea. That is NOT to say this isn’t a really excellent tea! I actually drink this more often than not in the morning. It has become a staple for me yet yes I do feel there are others both from Teavivre and otherwise a bit more complex. I like it A LOT but maybe the OMG THIS IS THE BEST BLACK EVER phase has passed.
I think that all things are in perception – where we each are as tea drinkers at the given moment of the review.
That kind of makes it unfair at times to the tea and company other times works in their favor.
It can also be a bit unfair to those reading the reviews perhaps.
I think this is why many people no longer rate teas perhaps.
For me, I still rate them but have a far better knowledge now of what I really enjoy. This still makes that list but perhaps for different reasons than others.
For me it is a great staple to have on hand. For mornings when you want a GOOD tea, a QUALITY tea, but maybe not your absolutely BEST tea as your still waking up and your mind and taste buds need acclimated.

Wow I said “perhaps” A LOT!

I try not to read other’s reviews until I write my own. Then sometimes I might PERHAPS ;) revise to mention the difference of opinion. Its your review at this moment in time – write what you feel.

Drank this one yesterday evening.

Great tea, very bold taste, very humble and unpretentious. Though a tiny bit too grassy for me, I guess. It lacks some flower-y notes for my liking, But still, I’d drink this one every day for a long time.

However, if I’d have to choose between Organic White Peony (Bai Mu Dan) Tea and this one, I would choose the first one (that’s why I’ve got 3 packages of it :P ).
