Tried this today from a coworker’s new stash. First off – tiny, tiny, tiny leaves! It reminds me of a Pakistani tea someone brought me – almost looks like instant coffee. Harney site suggests brewing 5 minutes. Coworker said it about knocked his socks off at 5 minutes so I went with 1 1/2. A nice, simple tea for daily use is what I’d say this is. Nothing fancy, just good ol’ tea flavor. Good hot, good cold. I got no hints of mint at all though.
This is a lovely high-grown Ceylon Pekoe from Uva. Thus it is small leaves that produce an intense tea. It is bright and brisk, with a hint of minty spice. It is guaranteeed to pick you up on dull afternoons. It can handle milk and sugar with aplomb.
