I would say it’s a good breakfast or all-day-round tea, it’s not overly complex, very light pleasant taste (I noticed a bit of a hay note to it) while drinking with a bit of astringent aftertaste, slightly bitter. I am not very knowledgeable of orange pekoes, it seems like they are supposed to be clean and easy drinking, I can definitely agree that this tea falls under this description. Not my cup of tea, pardon the pun, it lacks boldness and complexity to me. Verdict – something you’d drink as an all day tea, not to savor.

I was always a huge fan of teas but my tastes changed constantly. Lately I am on the path of discovering Chinese teas, but not limiting myself to that. I am, however, favoring straight teas at this point.

I love pu-erh, oolongs are always a treat, learning about greens is delicious, absolutely neutral towards rooibos or herbals and black is always a yes. Incidentally any combination of the above is ok in a blended tea, which I like to have time to time.

« The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh—oh the seventh cup—
if I drink you, a wind will hurry my wings
toward the sacred island. »
