drank Braveheart by Savoy Tea Co
2782 tasting notes

I’m thinking that one of the signs that you’ve got a good tea is that you backtrack to see how many times you’ve reviewed it, and you haven’t often, but the tin is gravitating distressingly toward empty. (Same conclusion when you’re down to the last swig in your tumbler and can’t remember downing it.)

So this qualifies. It’s a good, thick, heavy, silky tea that has the wake-up strength of a builder’s tea without its murky flavor. The blend is ID’d by Savoy as “Chinese, Indian, and Sri Lankan.” When you consider its lighter, brighter, profile, I’m thinking heavier on the Sri Lankan side.

Whatever’s in the mix, it’s well-balanced and much appreciated on a chilly, rainy morning.

Steepster “geezer;” tea barbarian who has no systematic method for storage, preparation, classification, or rating; lover of strong unleaded builders’ tea. Never quite grew up—I cut and glue, play with Legos, design kids’ curriculum, and play with fifth graders every Sunday.
