This was stronger than I anticipated but that’s a good thing in my book! It’s rich! It’s brisk and fairly bold. I really like that it;s whole leaf Nilgiri hand blended with Yunnan Golden Buds! YUM!

I like this one quite a bit. Bright and brisk, just like the description suggests. Pleasant flavor, really smooth. One of those teas that is nice to keep on hand … for moments when you want something that is bold, robust and still easy to drink. Very nice.

Here’s my full-length review:

I thought this tea was pretty good. It didn’t wow me, and I didn’t pick up many nuances in aroma or flavor, but I didn’t hate it. It seemed to match the name pretty well: Basic Black.

I have enough left for one cup, so I think I’ll try it again with a little sugar and almond milk, just to see if the character improves.

Where did you find out about this company? The first time I saw then was at the coffee/tea fest in NYC in March. They’re so small, I’m surprised someone else has their tea! Honestly, I have about 5 teas from then that I still need to try.


I received a box of tea samples from a friend. I had never heard of this company before, actually. Did you taste any of their teas at the coffee/tea fest?
