drank Lao Cong Zi Ya by Norbu Tea
421 tasting notes

Yes! This tea is wonderful when iced! All the fruity notes and the complexity survive to make a cup of iced tea the likes of which you can only get when brewing good quality tea at home. My dad, not a tea drinker at all, came in on Sunday to help me build a cabinet (for teapots, cups, gaiwans,etc if you are asking :) ), and he loved it. It doesn’t need any sweetening in my opinion, and adding mint, lemon and other “tea additives” will just take the edge off the wonderful depth of this tea. I’m so, so, sorry that Norbu no longer stocks it regularly (they are willing to special order it, but only in large amounts). Solidly one of my favourite teas.

An Israeli computer programmer with a passion for tea (mostly bought in yearly shopping sprees in the UK), particularly black, oolong and white. I don’t generally enjoy flavoured teas or herbal infusions, but if a tea sounds interesting and smells nice I’ll most definitely try it. I drink several cups of tea a day, usually one or two in the morning, another one after lunch and one or two in the evening. My favourite tea so far is Lao Cong Zi Ya from Norbu Tea, but I’m constantly trying new teas. Only in the past year have I branched into Pu’erh and non-roasted oolongs. Finding good tea in Israel is difficult, so I import most of my teas from yearly visits to London, or from online retailers. If you see something in my cupboard that sparks your interest and you would like to swap with me, then please message me. I’m almost always up for a swap.
