I had this tea this morning. This was a sample from Cameron B.

When I smelled the leaves dry, I thought “uh oh”. It wasn’t a good smell to me. Kind of leathery.

I brewed at 200F for 3 min, 8oz. I can truthfully say I have never had a tea like this one. I wanted something different and I certainly got something different.

This is a very bold robust black tea. It brews up really dark. It was very woody & earthy with notes of leather . I’ve read notes with others saying they got leather notes in other teas. When I would read that, I would cringe. Yuk. Leather. However, it’s not as terrible as it seems. It was actually quite good. It was sweet and smooth and also had fig notes.

Will I be wanting to buy this tea? No , but I’m glad I got the chance to try it!

Flavors: Earth, Fig, Leather, Smooth, Sweet, Wood

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
