This is one of Vahdam’s cheaper teas. The leaves are all black like a traditional black tea. It still doesn’t taste quite like a black tea to me. It is somewhat malty and there are some other notes as well. Not really sure how to describe them. They sell this tea for $9 and I think it was on sale when I bought it. I will not be putting in another order with Vahdam for a while. Got about 2kg of tea in this last order, some 21 teas.

I steeped this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water.

190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
