I needed a pick me up at work and this was one of three that I chose. This was the most disappointing out of the three. The leaf quality looks very nice. The dry leaf includes long tendrils of black and gold. They carry a dry smoky scent. I brewed up a cup, and it was bland. The only flavor I could taste was wood. This wasn’t a nice wood either. It tasted like I was gnawing on tree bark in backyard. The taste then went south and bitter after a few minutes. This batch might have just had a rough trip being transported, or maybe it has been bagged too long.

A very good black tea. A nice, lush scent with a slightly sweet note. Smooth flavor, bold yet definitely not as harsh as a typical assam. However, the finish is a bit bitter.

At $3.25/oz for loose leaf (as of this writing, per the website), this is easily worth twice the price. If you’re a fan of “straight” black teas, don’t hesitate to grab some.

I bought a cup of this tea (hot) at the Capital Teas stand in the Mall in Columbia. I don’t know how they steeped it, sorry.

’Here’s Hoping’ Teabox Round #4 – Tea #18

A delicious standard assam but possibly a little lighter for an assam than I’d expect. That’s okay… it means less astringency. A little fruitier and sweeter instead of dark. Not as baked rye bread as some assam can be.
Steep #1 // just boiled // 3 min

I pretty much completely disagree with the description for this tea provided by the seller. I don’t drink this in the morning and I don’t think it’s a boldly flavored tea. Even though we may disagree on those points, I do think this is a great tea.

I find the flavor to be almost delicate. There is a subtle malty sweetness that’s hard to describe, but is always present and always welcome. While I do enjoy this tea hot, I prefer to drink it iced. It’s one of the top iced teas I drink when it’s hot out and I’m looking for something cool and refreshing to drink. I’ve even been known to put it in my bike’s water bottle for a treat.

Perhaps it’s the official tea of cycling in the Washington DC region? Either way, it’s great hot and iced.
