From Teavana

Tying the knot is the ceremonial bliss of the soul-mated bud and leaf. A delicate union, this is a ‘meant to be’ tea found 2,000 feet atop the famed Yunling Mountain Range of China then hand rolled into a coil of sacred perfection. Gold and black intertwine as one, creating a unique copper hue with sweet honey notes singing legendary declarations of devotion.

Medium-bodied infusion with honey undertones.

Sipdown… So sad to see this one go. The hubby and I had this with our continental breakfast. No sugar, no milk, nothing added. It was perfect. Smooth as butter, full-flavored but not too dark, malty but not bitter… mmmm. I really hope the Teavana by my house has this in stock, ‘cause their online stock is so unpredictable. I don’t have anything against helping an employee reach their sales goals, but it would be nice if they would at least show all the teas they carry on the website.

My favorite “go to” tea in the morning. Unfortunately Teavana discontinued it!

This tea is quickly becoming one of my favorites, tasty without being overpowering.

I originally gave this an okay rating. Right now, I am drinking it with German Rock Sugar and milk and YUM.

Had to raise my rating, it is quite delicious this way

I’m not really a big fan of black teas from China, and this was no exception. It wasn’t unpleasant to drink, just not very strong or particularly to my liking.

I’ve always found the Copper Knots, as I’m fond of calling them, to be aesthetically pleasing, which is what first drew me to these leaves. As someone who likes a strong pot of black tea, I find the Copper Knots to be particularly forgiving. As long as you let the water cool a bit from a boil before pouring it in the pot, you can let it steep a little more than recommended and get a robust, deeply flavored brew that’s strong yet not overly bitter. I’m actually bummed that Teavana appears not to be carrying it anymore. . .

I like the flavour of this tea, but it doesn’t have intensity. No matter how much I use, it always seems thin and doesn’t develop a strong, distinct flavour. The leaves wash out after a single, longer steeping. With milk, it is overpowered. The tea appeared damp — moistened, maybe — when I bought it, hence I have docked 5 points.

A subtle yet complex taste that cannot be ignored. Once you try this tea, you’re stuck with it. One of my staple black teas.

Nice. Smooth and smoky. I like it with a touch of milk. Lately I have been drinking it without any milk…I like it even better. This is my go to black tea. Still one of the only teas I will continue to buy from Teavana.

This is much smokier than I expected and actually put me off it entirely. It’s just too much for my palate.
