This was the first loose leaf black tea that I tried. It really showed me how different and “deeper” loose tea is vs. bagged. I wish I would have gotten the sample size. Yes, it’s enjoyable, but having read some other notes I discovered that I’m not fond of the malty aspect. And I’m a freak and don’t care for chocolate. So overall I think it’s a wonderful tea, it’s just not teagasmic for me personally. NE

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

I’m quite loose when it comes to tea prep. I also ended up using Steepster to find my “daily” teas which I mostly have accomplished.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
