4 Tasting Notes

One of the best black teas I’ve ever tasted, this Red Jade variety is incredibly delicious. The tea has a beautiful honeylike aroma and a woody flavor that is a fantastic combination. I rarely want to drink a tea completely straight, but for this variety I make an exception. The only unfortunate part of this tea is how expensive it is compared to many daily varieties. If only I could afford to drink it daily!

Flavors: Honey, Malt, Oak wood

While this isn’t BTT Co’s best offering overall or in the black tea arena, it still manages to be a great example of the Assam varietal. The tea has a thick, full-bodied flavor and a mouthfeel you wouldn’t ever find in a teabag. It is especially good when temprered with a touch of milk or cream. Unfortunately I think I cannot pull all of the flavor out of this tea due to being at high elevation where water boils at 195 F.

This tea is a great value for what you get. I paid about $8 for a 150g bag at my local asian grocer. This isn’t the highest quality tea by far, but it is very tasty and a great contender in the daily sencha category.
