1 Tasting Note


Wow. What fragrant and flavorful tea. The first thing that I can say about this tea is that it’s not an everyday tea. Nor is it a session tea in my mind. The floral and fruit flavors are bursting at the seems though, and that’s not something that every flavored black tea can deliver. It manages to deliver what’s advertised AND taste like a black tea- body, astringency, earthiness are all in line with a medium tasting black tea.

Tea Journey: When I sip on a cup of picadilly blend I’m transported to a more refined, sophisticated time and place. I imagine that I’m on a garden terrace, overlooking beautifully kept gardens and lush orchards. The gentle afternoon breeze that rustles the greenery below me reminds me to take another sip. Refreshing, bold, complex. I ponder the meaning of my place in the world as I watch the Picadilly perform a waltz in my clear glass pot. Black, gold, and royal blue.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Rose, Strawberry

Through will alone I choose to love tea. It’s a lifelong passion that will never die.

I tend to rate teas highly because I love them so much. If the basics are right, it almost always comes down to preference. I would love to rate every Lapsang Souchong 0 if I could, but I just accepted the fact that I can’t, don’t, will’t ever like the stuff.
