drank Black Beauty by Mandala Tea
113 tasting notes

My first foray into Mandala teas and I couldn’t be more pleased. This is a delicious, aromatic and refined tea that reminds me of an Old Tree Bohea. A mellow chai-like spiciness mingles with a honey-inflected sweetness to create a perfectly balanced cup. I can’t wait to try my Mao Cha and the two samples that were generously included with my order.

So very happy that you enjoyed this tea. I really appreciate you taking the time to write about your experience with it. Thank you. We have had some customers enjoy this tea at 195 degrees as well as 205, 208. It’s a pretty versatile tea, for sure. Enjoy the mao cha, my friend!

Bio

I love tea and living in a place that is cold or cool nine months of the year, tea is a constant source of warmth and education. I always drink tea straight and rarely drink flavored teas or Tisanes, except for the occasional Rooibos. I’m a proud father of two young boys, an avid skier, motorcyclist, reader, and runner. I have a doctorate in English (dissertation on Emily Dickinson.)
