I know this is an older verion but I like it, Very tasty and refreshing, I made it as an iced tea today for my company, everybody seemed to enjoy it :)
I’ve enjoyed all versions that I’ve had but this one is really good to me.

I’m not a big fan of this one,
I loved the in your face boldness of this one as it was quite strong to me(at first)with a good bit of astringency which I also enjoyed, no bitter tho, malty, slightly fruity at times with some bready notes and some woody notes even other than that nothing very special to make note of.
Not bad but not my cup of tea.
The second and third steeps didn’t keep the in your face boldness.
Would probably be pretty good steeped one good time strong with some milk and sugar or as a base to a chai maybe.
Not bad.
Yes I posted this one twice cuz it is in here twice :)

Very nice aroma, bold and fruity kinda flowery.

The first steep 3min as directed, Nice slightly bold body, slight fruity note like a peach followed by a smooth malty creamyness and a lingering astringency on the very end.

Second steep I just upped to 4min, Not quite as bold in the body but the taste is excellent! Fruity notes like plums instead of peach this time with a more intense malty creamyness and the astringency is only half as good as it was before but still lingers in a nice way.

The third steep again I just added one minute up to 5min, Still quite nice and tasty but very bold at all, friuty notes of plum still almost and a kind of raisin like note with smooth malty notes, not so creamy now and hardly any astringency at all.

I did a 4th steep but it came up too weak but still had a nice slight malty note.

Overall this one is Pretty good, the first steep delivered on the bold body and the second steep on the taste with a pleasant third steep also, it does lack a little in the body to me I don’t think I’d care for it with milk(like I enjoy most assams) unless it were made extra strong But at the same time it is a bit too tasty for milk and I don’t think it needs milk because that would weaken the taste of this tea itself, it’s good enough on it’s own.

Flavors: Creamy, Fruity, Malt

I like this one pretty good, it was nice and strong and bold.
I’m getting a slight sweet fruity note like apricot or peach, some slight woody notes and a hint of floral with a really strong chocolatey note on the end, it leaves a most wonderful aftertaste of cocoa and rose petals.
Very Good Tea, I may need to get some more.
I give an 80 on this one because I really enjoyed it, I will spend more time with this one and may change the rating.

Flavors: Chocolate, Rose, Wood

I’m not convinced that this is Tea, maybe a leafy vegatable from a distant planet dried to look like Tea.
Whatever it is, its not too bad
I kinda like it and I kinda don’t, kinda glad I have another sample to try.
I’m not sure what to think of most darjeelings tho,I’m not sure what it is about them that make them odd to me but they are, I think I’ve never had a really good Darjeeling.

The dry leafe smelled of celery and the wet leafe smelled of something awesome that i can’t describe, lovely comforting sweet aromas.
The taste is interesting, very yummy, I was impressed.
I’ve had other mulberry tea that tasted a little different than this one and I’ve had Jiaogulan leafe teas that tasted similar to this.
I’m not really sure how to describe this or what to think about it, Still very tastey :)
I see other reviws say it taste similar to a Sencha? I’m not sure I havent had enough Senchas But if they taste similar to this I’ll give them a try.
Oh the wet leafe aroma to me was like sweet white corn growing on the cob.

Amanda 'SoggyEnderman' Wilson

Thomas Edward(Toad)
