Quick review before bed! Another one from the UTTB.

It’s surprisingly jammy and fruity upon first sip. There’s also maltiness, notes of dark chocolate, and a lingering sweetness. It sits thickly on your tongue. There is a touch of bitterness that doesn’t detract from the other flavors at all; it comes with the impression of dark chocolate, simply adding to it.

Very fruity and peppy with a heavy caramel sweetness. (It reminds me of a Yunnan tea—Zhu Rong. It’s certainly similar.) My favorite kind of black tea. (: It’s juicy and sweet and decadent. Simply delicious! Little to no bitterness in this cup either.

More bright and fruity. The caramel is a little softer. A little buttery, even. Becomes more pronounced as it cools.

Overall a very lovely tea. I’m glad I got the chance to try it!

I am still relatively new to loose leaf, as I have only been drinking it since 2013. I’m amazed at how much my tastes have changed just over the past year. I have met such lovely, kind individuals on Steepster and am so glad to have become a part of this community.

Pure black teas are my favorite. I drink black tea daily and I try to keep a variety on hand. I also enjoy white tea, puerh, and the occasional oolong. Matcha is something that I love though I haven’t tried a large variety. The very good matcha that I’ve had is quite expensive. In general I try to stay away from flavored teas—especially those with artificial flavorings—but I will make rare exceptions, and I do enjoy a well crafted blend of straight teas. Things I (usually) don’t like: green oolongs, rooibos, straight green teas.

Rating System
90+ The very best! Teas that I always need in my cupboard!
85-89 Teas that I enjoy immensely and will try to keep around.
80-84 Makes a very pleasing cup. I will enjoy drinking them, but won’t necessarily try to keep around. (There are exceptions.)
70-79 Decent, but could be better.
60-69 Mediocre.
40-59 Gross. I might still try to finish the cup.
39 & under Undrinkable. I probably dumped this cup. Depending on the specific rating, I probably threw the rest of the tea out as well.

Some of my favorite tea companies are:
-Whispering Pines Tea Co.
-Verdant Tea
-Mandala Tea
