From Camellia Sinensis

Full of flavor, this typical Chinese black teas is sure to please fans of Sun Moon Lake. Notes of barley sugar and malt combine with fruity (cassis, ground cherry) and slightly tangy notes. Its velvety texture and sweetness offer a real comfort to the soul and taste buds.

Steeped this 12 times, all while chilling out and listening to Drone Zone from somafm.com

A very enjoyable tea and quite a unique experience that I’ve savoured over the months.
Next time I brew this it will probably be a “sipdown”.

This tea is from Dexter3657. Thanks! :)

This is so good. It actually survived in my travel mug during my winter walk really well. It still had nice flavour, and isn’t too strong with a 2 minute steep.

I have to try it in a ceramic mug instead of a stainless travel mug, but so far it’s on my list of “teas to buy”!

IMHO Camellia has really nice quality straight teas, you just need to pick the ones to suit your tastes. Happy that you enjoyed this one.


Now I’m looking at their website, getting drawn in by all the pretty pictures. :)


(I bought a beautiful yixing teapot from them too….)


so many places to order from…so little time and money for all of them haha


I know, right?

Wow – this is a much better choice today. I LOVE this. Different than other blacks I’ve been drinking. It’s bold and malty (tiniest hint of chocolate) but there are some fruity notes too – I’m getting citrus rather than cherry, but fruity none the less. The citrus notes adds a bit of astringency but more in a flavor way rather than in a bitter way. This astringency is really well balanced with the sweetness.
This has the potential of being added to my “must have list”. This really works for me, fantastic.

Another delicious black from dexter! operation get under 200 this weekend so i can make a teeny, tiny purchase is in effect! lol. I ended up drinking this one without really stopping to focus on it while doing this dishes this morning. What i can say is that this is somewhere between a fruity tea and a malty tea. It’s got a bit of both happening, though not overwhelmingly so. I really need to place an order with this company soonish…

Smelling the wet leaves suggest a strong malty/citrusy brew.
Brew is bright orange, smells like flowers, citrus and chocolate syrup!

I am tasting a nice mix of chocolate and lemon, it feels a bit like molasses or commercial chocolate syrup (in a very nice way). the mouthfeel is thin which is nice because i still get those flowers and the tartness makes it uplifting.

overall I’m really liking the balance of flavors and it seems to keep me in a very clear productive state.

One downside might be that it’s linearity/simplicity. But it really doesn’t bore me for casual sipping.

I have no idea what to say about this tea.
There was immediately a flavor that I didn’t care for, but can’t quite place.
I kept sipping.
Then there was roasted barley, reminding me of some of the herbal teas I used to enjoy.
Then it was almost as if I was drinking a Dancong: roasted florals & grapefruit.
I’m still sipping re-steeps of this interesting tea, sent to me from Sil who got it from Dexter I think. It’s almost like a houjicha now, only tangier, like apricot. Thanks girls!
Now I’m sitting on the camellia sinensis website…just looking around…


Shapeshifter tea!


The Camellia Sinensis website is a hard place to be “just looking around”. I really like all the teas of theirs that I ordered. :))

Drinking this tea I can’t help but compare it to some of the Dancongs I’ve had. It has the slight astringency they can have, but it is not quite as thick, rich, floral or as sweet as the oolong. It does have the hint of cream and fruit the ones I have had. It is a bit thinner than most black teas I’ve had until later steeps, but it has an interesting blend of contrasting flavours and I quite enjoyed it. The product description said the tea had cherry notes. I instead got mainly citrus, pink grapefruit and apricot tones. I may have had more cherry tones in a longer steep. In later steeps cocoa and malt came out as well. The tea is quite naturally sweet with the stevia like tones I’ve found occasionally in pouchongs. Altogether a really nice tea, which leans towards a dark roast oolong. Thanks Dexter3657 for the generous sample!

I used a little over 1 TSP in 200ml of water at around90°C

1min. Maple coloured brew.
Scent- roasted note, citrus rind/grapefruit, slight floral green note.
Flavour- top note is bright with citrus pink grapefruit notes. Underneath the top notes are roasted notes and cream. As it cools a slight green floral iris note appears, it becomes sweeter and creamier, with an apricot vanilla fruit tone. the tea has a creamy texture that dtssipates into a slight astringency. The dominant flavour is the roasted note with grapefruit. The tea has an aftertaste of sweet fruit, vanilla and cream with a slight astringency.

1min 20s
Scent – similar to first steep, but slightly less intense.
The tea has this beautiful gilded seppia tone.
Flavour- the taste is sweeter and softer. There are still a grapefruit and citrus note along with a mineral tone that is more apparent than the roasted tone. It is creamy and there is a slight bright citrusy floral tone. There is a hint of peach and apricot. The roasted note is breaking down into minetal notes and a woody tone. It is mildly astringent and very sweet with an all most Stevia like tone like I’ve found in pouchong at times.

1min 60s. Bright fruity scent, grapefruit and citrus rind, green floral scent, woody note and something sweet and deeper.
Flavour- cream, mineral, wood, citrus rind with hint of grapefruit. The cream has vanilla notes and the tea sweeten as it cools. The roasted wood note is stronger as it cools. There is a hint of cocoa and honey under peach and grapefruit. Bright citrus aftertaste contrasts with a sweet cocoa note underneath.

3min. Cream, malt, hint of honey, cocoa, fruit, mineral tone. Woodiness has dissipated leaving a vegetal tone.

4 min cream, honey, malt tone, fruit as top note.

5min and 6min malt, cocoa, tastes less sweet, but still gives a hint of tartness. Cream and a hint of soft fruit appear as it cools.

6min and 7min. Malt, cream, touch of cocoa.


Thanks for this very insightful note, I love this company.
