Very disappointed with this one. I’m not getting any of the flavors described in Rishi’s description or people’s tasting notes. I don’t taste any caramel, any chocolate, any raisin or really anything beyond a simple “black tea taste”. It just tastes like your run of the mill breakfast blend to me. Simple, flat, boring. I hate to be such a critic but it really bothers me when I feel like I’ve completely wasted my money on a tea. It doesn’t even taste like a Yunnan tea to me, it just tastes like a flat assam. Oh well…

My name is Kyle. I love good tea, a good book, the great outdoors, and I am passionate about music. I also find enjoyment in writing and mountain biking here in beautiful Central Oregon.

Tea is a hugely misunderstood and under-appreciated gift in the western world, and my hope is to spread the gift of quality tea. It is communion between the passion of man and the raw beauty of nature. It is art, and it is therapy. I hope you enjoy my writings.
