I always seem to overdo it on the leaves with Ceylon teas…time to get a scale, haha. Anyway, this tea was stronger than I expected; malty, with a good bite. It was not as smooth as most Ceylons that I have had, but I’ll back off on the leaves next time to see how it turns out. I completely enjoyed it, and it gave me a nice jolt this evening.
This is my first Keemun, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It tastes similar to Golden Monkey tea to me, but not as smoky or malty, and a bit sweeter. I’m not sure where this company gets their teas, but the quality of the teas always seems very good to me. I’ll have to get the Harney & Sons English Breakfast to compare.
Absolutely disgusting. I love cardamom, and I have no idea how this could be so bad. It had a sour taste, even a sour smell that couldn’t be resolved with milk, leaf adjustments, or steep adjustments. I finished my three cups of experiments, but I wouldn’t even give this away. Into the trash it goes.
I bought this when I was shopping in downtown Fredericksburg, and I absolutely love it. It really does taste like the woods, but in an appealing way. I love the sprinkles in it even though they don’t really melt, and they have no real connection to leaves, but they are pretty pops of color. I will definitely be getting more.
I was super happy to find there was a tea shop in Fredericksburg. While it is not perfect, I am happy to be able to walk around and sniff and peruse. Most of my favorite places online are online only or nowhere nearby. I was good and stuck to blends that are more unique than what I usually see.
I enjoy this – it is definitely appley, but balanced well with a breadiness and cinnamon spice flavor. I feel like there must also be a cream or caramel element, because while it isn’t sweet, it has a bit of burnt sugar taste.
I love a good green tea…this tea has surprised me…it’s funny how I acquired a taste for this one so quickly. I think I read someone use the description “pleasantly bitter” for a tea, and, at the time, it kind of seemed like an oxymoron. But, that’s kind of how I’d describe this tea. I went from fairly neutral about it to wanting to have it more often. Good stuff.

i’ve brewed this tea at home using water heated in the microwave, so it is not the same quality brew as using the Breville. I used hotter water for the first cup and used a three minute steep – that tea was very astringent to the point I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I might. The darjeeling green tea is much different than the Japanese and Chinese green teas I’ve tried, so I find this an interesting cup. The second infusion was probably closer to 180 and I steeped it for only two and a half minutes. I enjoyed this cup much more than the first. The color was not the normal green tea color, but more like a light oolong tea color. The third infusion was still quite good with some astringency on the tip of my tongue.
