I picked this up as I had a credit at Tea Desire and thought the original review was a little intriguing. I really love black teas so I couldn’t say no!
The tea itself was rather nice as far as I remember. Malty black with a little creaminess. I do remember wishing the 2nd steep was stronger.. that may have been my fault or the leaves may have been done already. I have a feeling its a bit of both as the 3rd steep was rather thin.
I will have to play with this tea more and see if it will provide me with more than just one delicious cup of tea! For that reason, I am going to hold of rating this =)

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
