The last brew of this sample packet. This time it reminds me of an after-dinner Andes chocolate mint. It is a pretty good tea, and the mint is refreshing.

A no-nonsense breakfast tea. Slightly smoky today, but pleasantly so.

drank Organic Kabusecha by O-Cha.com

Trying a new-to-me green tea from o-cha.com. This kabusecha has a very, very light liquor and mild flavor, slightly sweet. Grassy, not bitter. 175 is a bit hotter than I usually steep my Japanese green tea at, but I decided to follow the suggested preparation parameters marked on the packaging. I’m extremely happy with the results!

Accidentally let steep for a minute longer than usual. The resulting tea has a more robust “aged English furniture” note to it, but still mild and not a hint of bitterness.

Simple, a little more spicy, a little more wild-tasting than Harney & Sons’ English Breakfast. By “wild”, I just mean not “Classic British stiff-upper-lip”, and more … outside, in the brisk morning air, listening to the tide roll in.

A solid tea that brings to mind 400+ year old hard wood furniture and tapestries, an old stone home, a comforting fire in the fireplace. Aged? Classic? Vintage? Historic? Maybe all these things, maybe not. A tea that tastes from another time, and takes you there.

Simple and unfussy. Helpful in the morning when thinking power is at a low.

drank English Breakfast by Twinings

A little bitter at the finish, with a little aftertaste. But, other than that, not bad. It gets the job done. Just trying to finish out this tin that I’ve had for a bit.
