1621 Tasting Notes


Again another tea that I’ve waited so long to review. I am almost done with my bag of tea! I love the colorful leaves mixed in with this black tea. I smell the slight berry flavor on the dry leaf. Steeped, it is a nice, dark brew. This is quite a strong tea! It definitely is great for the morning. The flavor is slightly malty with some astringency to it. It doesn’t need additives though. It is good on its own. I love the slight berry flavor it has as well. Yum!

Sipdown! I have been slacking so much on writing tea reviews. I drank this tin all the way without having a review. tsk tsk. The steep is a honey golden brown color. First, I love the packaging. It has a lot of detail and the color is orange, which I love! I always reuse tins and wrap them in colorful paper. Second, this tea is milder than any breakfast tea that I have had. This is more of an afternoon tea. It is good and bad. Good because I can drink this in the afternoon as well. Also good because I do not need to add any sweetener or milk to it. It is fine just on its own. Bad because I need to drink something to wake me up in the morning, especially since I am no longer a coffee drinker. The flavors are mild as well. All in all a decent tea. It has astringency to it but still drinkable like I said without the additives.


I’m disappointed to hear that it is not that strong, I love english breakfast tea and I’m always on the look out for more morning teas. I can recommend you Anastasia by Kusmi tea as morning tea, it really wakes me up. Earl grey with a hint of lemon, truly one of my favourites!

This is the last of the samples that I had gotten. This is so delicious that I had to add it to my wishlist. This tea is a great treat. I love the sticky honey that gives this tea a slight sweetness to it. This tea isn’t bitter at all. Overall great tea – different too!

I was saving the very last bit of this tea for a special occasion. I was so sick that I had to take a sick day today. I needed to hydrate myself. I chose this tea. This is so incredibly delicious. It soothed my throat and eased my fever. I steeped this twice, and the second time was just as equally good. Needless to say, I will be purchasing this tea again… and again… This was the second time I had this tea.


feel better soon!

I’m someone who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
