drank Dawn by The Simple Leaf
308 tasting notes

Mmm. Woody, Chocolately, Malty, full-bodied and yet light at the same time. Really good tea. I smell something in this tea that is like earth (I keep calling that peat-like) but I’m not sure of the word for it. There is absolutely no bitterness after brewing 5 minutes and very low astringency.

The unbrewed leaves are beautiful almost black with tinges of green. Big full slightly furled leaves.

Brews up to a pale golden color. I added a little sugar. No cream needed.

And I have to give The Simple Leaf huge kudos for getting my order here so quickly. I don’t know how they did that. Ordered Saturday and it’s here today (on Monday) and I live across the country. Also, for anyone contemplating sample size vs full bag, I ordered one of each (a sample of the Mountain Malt) and the sample size is pretty large and will last me a long time. I think I just needed sample sizes of both.
