A review of Breakfast Black Tea by Bamboo Life Tea

Company: Bamboo Life Tea
Tea Name: Breakfast Black
Tea Type/Varietal: black
Region: Florida
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ tea bags
Liquor Color: dark amber / brown brew
Leaf Characteristics:


1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 5 minutes

I finishing the last of the tea samples given to me with my order from the Bamboo Leaf Tea and today it is to be their Breakfast Black tea. I put this one tea bag in my cup and added the boiled water to it and leave it to steep for five minutes.

Tea’s aroma is of a strong flavorful cup of tea; by strong I mean that the brew’s is of medium body and brisk when I sip and sip of the tea. I think of a Ceylon mixture and possibly combine with Assam for its robust ness which is on the mild side. I drink this tea plain as I do not feel a need to adding anything to it.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

I continue to enjoy this tea with somewhat cooler water and steep for less time than first cup and it seem the tea is better, it is brisk with a smooth finish on the palette since I did not notice this smoothness when the tea was very hot. So in all this blend has a smooth texture, rolls of the tongue nicely gliding down the back of the throat.

In all, this tea has no after taste, it is not astringent; Tea has a smooth, and cleanly feel with a creamy texture finishing.

200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
