Sipdown!
Thank you, Cavocorax, for sharing your sample of this tasty blend of teas with me! I had breakfast with his lordship, while Tony invited the Earl of Grey.
Petersham is a fine fellow, & I’d be glad to take tea with him anytime!

gmathis

You’ve been entertaining all kinds of dignitaries this weekend!

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, who would have thought it. Me, just a musician trying to get by, & all of a sudden I got Lords & Earls coming for breakfast, Friends visiting me in the tub, the Vicar…the damn Vicar, I tell you!

gmathis

Did he get his clerical collar wet? ;)

Terri HarpLady

Not sayin"n

Robert Godden

There’s also one named after Lord Petersham’s sister: The Duchess. But not available in the USA yet.

Terri HarpLady

Have you sampled it Robert?

Robert Godden

I’ve sampled them all! I’m the co-owner of The Devotea.

Terri HarpLady

Cool! Why isn’t it available in the US? It seems like there was another one on the site that was also only available in Australia…Aussie Chai (I just looked, LOL)

Robert Godden

We started in Australia, where we have 21 blends. Many of them are based around teas readily available here. As we have expanded to the the US and the UK, we have found that some ingredients are impossible to get for very expensive. As an example, we had real trouble getting lemon myrtle, which you can buy at most supermarkets here. The USA is doing very well and currently has more than half the blends available. There are also two USA-only blends – Star Spangled Chai and a new one about to be announced. With regard to Aussie Ginger Chai, which is our biggest seller in Australia, it is entirely made from Australian-Grown tea which is quite expensive in the US. Nevertheless, following a few well-known US tea bloggers falling in love with it after we toured the USA handing out packets of it last month, I rather suspect there might be good news on that one in the coming months.

Terri HarpLady

Awesome! Keep me posted, I love a good gingery chai! :)

My Grandma came over this afternoon to see my house and I offered to make us some tea. I set out three including this one and let her pick. This is what she chose. She loved it! She said it reminded her of her typical Orange Pekoe with just a little something else…I’ll learn her one of these days. ;) Considering the US blend has five different teas in it. But we had a nice time enjoying our tea together.

DaisyChubb

Wonderful!

LiberTEAS

I do need to try some of his teas.

The Purrfect Cup

They are really good!

Bonnie

Strong and black? Yes, very much so, yet not astringent, so really quite tasty plain. Not for the faint of heart (or palate), that’s for sure!

I planned on buying some of this quite awhile back, & never did. Thanks for the reminder!

Cavocorax

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by this one!

This was in my Amoda box! I finally got around to reviewing it after packing half of it up for TerriHarpLady.

Now I almost wish I wasn’t sharing it!! Bahahahahah. (Not really though – I have some excellent samples coming my way).

I was surprised by this. It’s smooth, yet astringent in a good way, bold, and a touch smoky! I should have had this in the morning, but I’ll resteep it and stay up instead. It’s almost a little creamy too? Wow. I’m happy I gave the Amoda box a try!

400th note!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 45 sec
Sil

Woot! Grats on 400!

Terri HarpLady

Yay! I’m excited that I’ll get to try this! Thanks in advance!

Kittenna

I was surprised by this one too. Always nice to try a tasty unflavoured black! PS Sil, if you want some of this from me, you’re welcome to it.

Sil

Yes please lol

Robert Godden

Congrats on the 400th Note.

Cavocorax

Thanks! I just checked your website and the prices are very reasonable! Maybe I will be able to stock up on more of this one!

Robert Godden

Great to hear. Also, our US distributor now has a sample pack where you get them all.

Cavocorax

Is that through the teatra.de site as well?

Cavocorax

Thanks for letting me know!

Sil

Must. Update spreadsheet for kittenna. Gah going to forget lol

Kittenna

Didn’t I put it on there?

Sil

You did :)

This one feels even stronger in some ways than the other two breakfast blends I’ve tried so far from The Devotea. It’s smooth though, just like they were; the body feels less like a coat but there’s a welcome slight leaf bitterness that works with the smoothness. I might like 1910 a skosh more for the surprising flavors at the end of its sip, but this is nice too. The color in the cup is gorgeous, clear but deep, a warm brown smoothly burnished with a bit of ruby. Breakfast blends! Along with after dinner Assams you are getting me through this endless winter and for that, many thanks.

You’re right about this winter feeling endless.

Robert Godden

So glad you are also enjoying this. It’s our most popular tea in America.

mrmopar

20 inches of snow so far here, traffic is slam stopped everywhere.

Terri HarpLady

That’s a lot of snow!
I’m happy to report that the snow is melting in St. Louis, which is good because I hate moving my harp in the snow!

mrmopar

Settled out at 26 inches of snow. Blah lots of shoveling.

Terri HarpLady

Or you can just sit around & drink tea :)

funnily enough, I didn’t realise that i’d had this tea before via someone’s amoda box :) So colour me surprised when i saw a rating there…which i’ve since upped! This was a fabulously strong yummy cup of tea today. So i was either really in the mood for it or my tastes have changed slightly. It looks like straight blacks are my thing with the devotea, rather than the flavoured :)

Robert Godden

Based on a limited survey, the whole of America likes it, Sil.
It is our top selling tea in the USA, but around #10 in Australia.

Sil

What’s the top unflavoured in Australia?

Robert Godden

It’s 1910, Sil. Also our new Queen Adelaide is doing well. And a few of the single origins. But 1910 is our third best seller here, way behind Aussie Ginger Chai and Lady Devotea.

Terri HarpLady

Queen Adelaide?
I think I’ll make a pot of 1910 to go with brekkie this morning…:)

Sil

oh nice. i have 1910 in my cupboard so i’ll have to explore that one

Received this from Terri HarpLady.

I was having a difficult time figuring out how to describe this one. It is sweet, smooth, maybe its malty. It is definitely a STRONG tea for sure. Maybe some assam, or some Ceylon? Is that a Darjeeling? I really don’t even know if that is what I am tasting either. I thought maybe my taste buds were off from eating or drinking something. So I started doing some digging. I think the best way to describe this tea is how the company describes it : A blend of seven teas, named after an Regency/Georgian English gentleman with a massive collection of tea. Strong and black.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

This tea is a big hit in the US, I think after I did a piece of tea pairing that suggested “Lord Petersham and Downton Abbey”!. Sales go up every time a new series starts!
Thanks for your comments.

Backlog:

I was so thrilled when I saw this tea in the Amoda box back in May. (Yes, that’s how far behind I am. Yes, I hear Sil saying “she’s never going to get caught up” and laughing about it. It’s not funny Sil. I’ll get caught up. Just … quit laughing at me, Sil.)

Anyway … I love this tea. I love it. One of the very best black tea blends I’ve ever tried. This is like top-notch awesome. Like the awesome-est of the awesome awesomeness.

I could see what looked like flecks of Darjeeling second flush and plump, tippy leaves of Golden Yunnan. The smell was earthy and floral. On introduction, there was a bit of a citrus snap, followed by a slight tannic bite in the middle, then it snapped at the top note with a presence of peppers, allspice, honey and Keemun sweetness.

A colleague of mine brought in some samples from The Devotea to try out, and this was one of them. It’s a great cup of tea! It’s one of those that holds up sweetened or not, and is good at any time of the workday. I’m sad I ran through so quickly, though I suspect I’ll be placing an order for some soon!
