I stumbled upon this leaf and once I saw the companies name I knew I had to try it. I love the inspirations behind each of these blends. This one in particular was unique from the others I have tried from this company. The dry leaf consists of small dark knots of black tea and herbs dotted throughout. I brewed a generous amount in my press. The brewed liquor carried a refreshing minty aroma. The taste was a sour lemon. I sat out on my porch watching the puddles form and sipped this herbal brew. This liquor carried a smooth body of lemon and mint and had a light undertone of BBQ. The best part was after every sip there would be a sharp tangy sweetness balanced at the tip of my tongue. I really liked this brew but by the second steeping it had faded. This was a great tea, and I assume it was better fresh. I believe this to be another success from this company, although not as good as its other counterparts.

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best. I usually brew gongfu but I’ve been known from time to time to resort back to western brewing.

I have an Instagram (haveteawilltravel), and I am proud of my photographs. I use my pictures in my reviews,and I hope that they aid in portraying the beauty of tea and teaware.


Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
