Well, I may have underleafed this tea. I find teas like this with extra large long twisty leaves difficult to measure! Also I’m at work so I know my water temperature was a little lower than it should have been. I will have to explore this tea further with proper steeping parameters! Having said that, I find this to be a very interesting straight black tea. Light and sweet with fruity overtones rather than the dark, roasty/malty blacks that I am accustomed to. I think this tea and I could become good friends but I’m not ready to slap a rating on it yet! :)

Bio

Graphic artist, printmaker, lover of tea.

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
