Tastes good.

I noticed that the tea bag is really too small for the amount of tea. After it has been in the water for a couple minutes the tea has expanded to the point that the bag is bulging and water is not able to flow through the tea bag properly. I expect this tea would have even more flavor if the bag was big enough.

This tea is sold in a large box of 100 individually packaged tea bags. The box is sturdy sturdy and attractive and it will be perfect for storing ‘overflow’ tea that won’t fit into my regular tea box.

drank Organic Black by T&T

This tea is quite mild. I started with a hot cup and boiling water and after 5 minutes the tea was still light in color and tasted weak.

I was surprised to find the taste reminded me more of T&T’s Organic Oolong tea than a black tea. I actually got thinking that maybe they mixed up the tea and put oolong tea in the bag instead of black tea.

The tea tasted fine but it is not what I was looking for or expecting when I chose a black tea

I made another cup of this tea today. Once again I made it with boiling water steeped for 5 minutes. This time I didn’t get the oolong taste. It was still quite weak though. I would say the strength of the tea would be like Red Rose brand Orange Pekoe tea steeped for only 15 seconds (or maybe even a bit weaker than that).

It did taste good though, just weak/mild. I think I will eventually finish the box of 100 bags but I am not sure if I will repurchase.

drank Organic White by T&T
112 tasting notes

This is the first pure white tea that I have tried.

Tastes great! The package recommends steeping at 90 C (193 F) for 3-5 minutes, but I did not follow the directions. I steeped it for 10 minutes at a temperature of 65-70 C (150-160 F).

I did it this way because I heard that steeping white tea for longer at a lower temperature would preserve more of the delicate flavor. I am happy with the results but next time I will try and follow the directions to see which way tastes better.

I steeped another cup based on the directions on the package (85 – 90 C / 185 – 194 F for 5 minutes) and this also tastes good.

Summary:
1st cup (steeped at 65-70 C / 150-160 F for 10 minutes): Absolutely no bitterness at all. Light but complex flavour with a slightly sweet after taste.

2nd cup (Steeped at 85 – 90 C / 185 – 194 F for 5 minutes): Just the slightest bit of bitterness in the after taste. I don’t like bitter tea but the bitterness was so slight that I still enjoyed it. The flavour is a little bit stronger than the 1st cup but the range of flavour is not as broad or as complex.

The verdict:
I really enjoyed both cups of tea but I think I enjoyed the first one that was steeped for longer at the lower temperature a bit better. Next time I will probably split the difference and steep the tea at 80 C (177 F) for 7 minutes. Maybe that way I would get the best of both cups of tea.

drank Organic Black Tea by T&T

This morning’s breakfast tea. It’s the first time I have ever had this black loose leaf tea from T & T. I like the fact that it’s organic. Aroma: lovely, clean and uncomplicated.
There is absolutely no bitterness. I drink it without wanting to add anything at all. This tea is quite good, even though it was not expensive.

drank Organic Black Tea ( Keemun) by T&T
436 tasting notes

This is a nice example of a classical Keemun. It brews to a nice red colour and has the classical fruity red wine notes blended with a really nice floral spice mix with honey and grain notes to tie them both together. A bargain for its price and better quality than I expected in a grocery store tea.
