I just received this months Tea Club package and there are three offerings from PT Harendong and I am very excited!

This is the first of three I am trying!
It’s the RED Tea…or…BLACK Tea in other words (in the US)

The look of this tea – dry – is as earthy and natural looking as you can get because it has the leaves, and a few visible twig-like textures and other tea-related limbs for lack of better words at the moment. The visual that was rather shocking for me with this tea is that it resembled an oolong but with darker leaves! The way it was rolled, for example, looked a lot like an ali shan. VERY COOL!!!!

It infuses to a medium brown.

It’s fairly bready and sweet. It’s malty! It has a VERY slight cocoa or chocolate type taste in the middle of the sip, too! This is a neat tea!

Unlike any other Red Tea (Black Tea) I have EVER had! This is a conversation tea that is for sure! I like it VERY much!!!!

Revision, one of my first notes;
Dry leaf smells beautiful and somewhat spicy. Color is a nice amber. Flavor immediately displayed a sweet current, which coupled with it’s boldness is a nice mix. After a few moments the tea gains the slight malty aspect I hadn’t picked up on a moment before.
Second steep; Still very smooth and the sweetness is definitely present in the aftertaste. This is a quenching drink leaving my mouth ever ready for the next sip.
This is the kind of black tea I could enjoy all the time. Clean, not too heavy yet bold and full of flavor, sweet notes but not artificial tasting.
This sample originally came to me from Pureleaf, but may have resurfaced in the sampler I bought from LiberTEAS (which I still suggest that all fellow newbie drinkers to get one of these to help you in your tea learning journey), not sure so thanks to you both!
Tune;none aside from that of one of my sons practicing his newly acquired xylophone.

Did you acquire a healthy stock of Advil to accompany said xylophone? (I can’t say much…played bells in high school marching band. Banged ’em so hard my teeth hurt.)

Ooh, I think I have a little xylophone around my house somewhere. Hitting the high notes actually, literally hurt my ears. It was troubling.

Me being a lover of music to the degree I am I actually encourage almost all of the ‘noise’ that is made, save the blatant banging out of boredom…that was alot of b’s.

Thank you LiberTEAS for this very pleasing sample!

Wow, this is a very interesting black tea!

The leaves are very dark and are tightly twisted along with plenty of loose small stems. The liquid is medium golden brown, which resembles a ground Curry powder in color.

Once you place your lips to the cup, you forget altogether that what you are drinking is a black tea. It is sweet and fruit-like, yet mystical with it’s faint floral flavor and delicious pastry ending notes. My lasting impression makes me imagine a freshly baked blueberry tart.

This tea makes me continue to discover my ignorance with black teas. Previously, all my encounters with black tea was from the Indian tea-producing regions, which are not bad at all…however, this opens up a whole new world! I have to say that I truly appreciate LiberTEAS in helping expose me to the other sides to this more oxidized variety!

I am pretty much going to be echoing some of the thoughts of TeaEqualsBliss on this tea, because I’m tasting pretty much the same thing she tasted. Earthy, sweet and floral in the background, with a foreground of sweet and malty tones. Caramel-y, with hints of cocoa. It has a deep flavor to it that resembles baked bread, like the freshly baked french bread you might find in the grocery store bakery if you happen to be lucky enough to arrive when the bread emerges from the oven. YUM!

So very good!

I’ve actually had this a few times but am just now getting around to rating.

It’s very yummy. The smell is malty, honey-ish, with warm rusty undertones. The taste has that warmth and redness rather than more burnt or black tastes of most black teas. It has a short finish. It is very satisfying and light. Not a heavy tea at all, in case blacks are usually feeling too strong or dark to you. It’s very easy to like.
