304 Tasting Notes

I brewed up a pot of this in my new Japanese teapot! Hubby took me to an estate sale, I got a cute little teapot with four sipping cups for $10. This did make up for yesterday’s dismal day of shopping at Canton Trade Days.
Inside the teapot, the leaves had plenty of room to unfurl:) This is what I should drink when I want popcorn. Very savory and meaty yet light and satisfying. Less caffeine than black teas makes this one a better choice for nighttime drinking.

There’s an alternative to eating popcorn when you’re in the mood for it? : ) I had popcorn twice this weekend. Oops!

Thank you libertea! Today I used a heaping tsp to 12 ounces of water, lowered the water temp and only brewed for three minutes. I did add a packet of raw sugar…awesome! There is a lesson to be learned here…don’t give up so quick. But I do agree with mrawlins2, she told me that life is too short to drink bad tea.

This blend has got me puzzled. My first cup was perfectly balanced, I drank the entire pot in just a few minutes. My next brewing yielded a bitter mess…down the drain it went:) My third brewing was this morning..boiled the water, brewed for four minutes(thought I might follow the directions this time around…Ha!) the more I drank, the smokier it got and when the thought of cigars crossed my mind, BAM I was done and down the drain it went:) I just don’t understand how it could be so good at first and now I can’t get a decent cuppa out of it.
Any suggestions?

I don’t use boiling water with this, instead, the water temperature is 195°F. That is what I would suggest. That and steep for 3 minutes.

I am so glad you posted this suggestion! I will try it tomorrow and let you know:)

I like to steep my black teas for about 2.5 or maybe 3 minutes and then test a sip. If it needs a bit more strength I will give it another 30 seconds and test again, but I find many black teas are “just right” at 3ish minutes.

My tin arrived today…doing a happy dance:) ripped open the box and brewed a pot straight away..OMG this is a Damn Fine Tea! I really like this one, perfect all by itself and as the label implied my elf vigor was quickly restored after a very trying day. I am not experiencing any astringency, just a perfectly balanced blend of black teas..which I suspect has a Ceylon base. I am on my second/last infusion, it is much lighter than the first but still very drinkable. I am so pleased that I jumped on the recent sale:)

This tea pairs well with a hearty breakfast. I added a raw sugar packet and 2 TB of milk. Yummy in the best sort of ways:)

Thanks to mrawlins2 I had enough of this sampling to make a pot of this tea. Smooth, not bitter and not astringent. Paired wonderfully with my apple tart and then with some dark chocolate. I drank the whole pot before it had a chance to cool even the least little bit. After reading all the reviews on this on, I am eager to resteep and enjoy this one again today.

I was down to one teaspoon of this fabulous tea and then the mail man came and brought me not two ounces but FOUR ounces of this delightful tea. I am set, let the snow begin…have I mentioned that it was like 60 degrees here today…where is the snow? I told hubby that we lived in the wrong place!!!

gmathis

I’ll send you ours (snow) … but it’s mostly refrozen and slick; you probably don’t want it.

Still going barefoot most of the time here, but I hear we have a few days of chilly weather moving in.

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
