Sipdown. I’ve enjoyed this tea much more cold brewed. It’s been juicy and refreshing. Delicate black tea with hint of sweetness that has been enjoyable to drink at work. Best part about cold brewing – no astringency and dryness.
Not a replaceable tea, but glad I was able to enjoy the rest of my leaf.
Small leaves, some with silver tips. Straight I find this too astringent to be enjoyable. With milk, the astringent edge is muted. Tea is slightly smoky and kind of green tasting.
I’m not going to rate this because I prefer teas without additives. Mostly this note is for me to remember not to buy Ceylon black teas in the future.
Flavors: Astringent, Green, Smoke
Seriously minty smelling black tea. Hit you in the face with mint.
Taste – not as strong as smell, but still has a lot of mint flavor.
I can still taste the black tea underneath the mint.
I think for me there’s just too much mint. I’ll finish drinking what I have.
When I follow temp/steeping guidlines this tea is so much better. Strong jasmine scent in dry leaves. I don’t get strong jasmine flavor from this tea. I thought it was a black tea, but it’s a green tea instead. Which makes my review make more sense. I think I may have cooked the leaves the first time.
Smooth with jasmine flavor at the end. I got more jasmine flavor with cooler water. I can and will enjoy drinking the rest, but I won’t be buying more of this blend.
Steep 2 tsp at 190 F for 2 min in 15 oz
