I really like this tea. Its robust and brisk without being bitter or astringent. It comes in a huge pyramid tea bad which I cup open and steep. I think it taste better, I know its only in my head but oh well. I wish I knew what teas were used but what ever they used it works. Its organic and has an underlying sweetness to it.
This is a very rich and tasty cup of tea. Its a huge tea bag so I used 14 oz of water. It looks like a huge mini pillow after steeping. I’m going to try and use it again when I finish this cup. At first I thought this was Keemun tea but I think its too brisk and robust to be that. Maybe Kenyan? I wish I knew more about teas so that I could tell, but I’m no expert. No bitterness and maybe just a touch of astringency. This is a very nice breakfast tea and its organic to boot.
I’m surprised, this cup was almost as good as the first. No bitterness or astringency and still kept most of the robust and brisk taste. I can’t do this with most pyramid bags, very nice cup.
Yeah, I cut open the pyramid tea bag and steeped this tea the normal way. Its such a rich and flavorful tea. The box reads organic China black teas so I’m assuming there is quite a bit of Keemun tea in it. It has a similar taste to Harney and Sons English Breakfast. I steeped about 16 ounces of tea in a mug and its really very good. The box has 1.6 ounces of tea in only 15 tea bags so I’m tempted to open all of the bags. The tea is very smooth with no bitterness or astringency. Its probably just me but I think the tea taste better w/o the bag. So. I’m going to up my rating a few points as I really like this tea.
