I have decided to fix myself of a cup of Teajo’s Refreshing Orange (Single Estate Indian) Black Tea. I brew myself a cup of this firstly this morning and I am sorry to say although the tea’s color is lovely reddish orange color and tea’s aroma is that of orange peels and a hint of bergamot perhaps. Something about this tea reminds me of some of the Upton Teas I tried a while back. This tea is similarly with an after taste that is similarly to the Scented Darjeeling by Upton Tea and most specific is their English Early Grey Tea by Upton Teas; this taste lingers and is found in the aroma as well and I don’t like it. It is worse than bitter.

I am sorry but I cannot justify liking this tea. I simply cannot. It is not refreshing which to me means clean and fresh like a green tea.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
