I super over-leafed this to get rid of it. It’s…fine. Like cooked spinach and snap peas. Also has kind of a latex thing going on that’s not super pleasant.

Ah, campsite. This embodies the earthiness of a pu er leaf while still holding to the slightly brisk features of a black leaf. IT is reminiscent of mahogany and damp wood. Rinsed once and then steeped with 140 F water. The wet leaf smell like wet twigs. Which I enjoy.

Advent Calendar Day 5

I love all the new companies I’m getting to sample via Amanda’s advent calendar this year! I’ve never even heard of Aera Tea, but this seems like a lovely, high-quality black tea. The leaves are long and twisted with lots of golden tips and it has nice rich aroma. The flavor was surprisingly delicate for a black tea, on the fruity end of things and very smooth. Not sure I’d go for this particular tea again, as I prefer more full-bodied black teas, but the quality of this one makes me curious to check out more from this brand!

Flavors: Fruity, Smooth

Preparation

From the Samurai TTB
I had low expectations from this black/shu blend, and I was pleasantly surprised. The dry leaf didn’t have much of an aroma, and the brewing instructions were 2 tsp for 8 oz for 4 minutes which brewed up nice and strong.
The first steep is chocolatey, dark, and a bit earthy. I like it, and it would be a good candidate to share with coffee drinkers who want to try a bit of tea. It’s very smooth, with a bit of dark chocolate caramel aftertaste lingering. This is not a bland or bitter cup of tea, and I might want to experiment with leaf and steep time, but overall I’m enjoying this cup the second steep is a bit lighter and less complex, but still chocolatey and slightly caramel.
Thanks for adding to the box!

I drank this a few days ago, and can’t remember much about it, other than I felt pretty neutral about it.

I saw this company on Instagram, and saw that they had free shipping. I caved and got a few samples to try. I’m not usually a huge white tea fan, but I’ve been trying to taste outside of my comfort zone. There is a sweet, orange blossom scent that’s really pleasant. Notes of hay and orange blossoms, with a bit of earthiness in the finish.

Flavors: Earth, Hay, Orange Blossom
