Thank you LiberTEAS for this great sample!

These dark and full leaves produce a very nice cup of tea!

Smooth, slightly creamy and even a touch of roasted nuts. This tea is definitely on the lighter side, which is a great alternative to a bolder and more astringent breakfast tea. I find this tea could be enjoyed throughout the day, because of it’s more mellow tone.

I just tore into this wonderful little drink a moment age.Dry leaf smell made me hungry. I’m not proficient in cooking spices to recognise what it was; a sweet minty smell. Red brown color. Wet leaves didn’t unfurl much,stemmy with pieces.First drink caught me off gaurd, so smooth yet rich. The maltiness, which reminded me of red wine, stood out.A wisp of smoke was present along woth a minty sweet/sour I felt in my outer jaws.Full body yet light and airy. I went ahead and steeped a second time and was glad I did. It may have lost too much for some of the more experienced drinkers, but you will hear no complaints from me. The malt eroded away to even sweeter notes. Something else about this drink; it’s very thirst quenching-no astringency. I have to agree with a post I saw (spoiler) from TeaEqualsBliss where she said it was ‘juicey’. Thanks Pureleaf for this one. I only wish I had enough to drink it all day. That’s OK, it’s going on my wish list. Yummy for my tummy.

I grew up drinking this tea. My parents are from the island this is grown and I have seen the plantation many times. When little I would drink a big bowl of this with milk in it. So good. I compare all others to this tea.

Wonderful rich flavour. Light and clean, moreso than most black teas.
The estate where it’s grown is very impressing.

Azores vacation teas!

I got to tour the Cha Gorreana plant on Sao Miguel Island in the Azores and got to sample several of their teas.

This was my favorite of what I tried here. A very good, big and bold, black tea. Very refreshing, something I don’t usually feel when I drink black tea, but this one was. Even hot.

Must be the soil. Grown in volcanic coil on the Azores, it is going to be much different than what we are used to. This is damn good.

I brought home 2 bags and loose leaf. Can’t wait to try it in a single serving!


I agree. I like the black pekoe best so far. Thankfully it and the broken leaf are the ones I can most easily find here in the Toronto area.
