I’ve had this one twice (?) now, and am still trying to decide what to think about it. It’s pleasant enough, but doesn’t have a whole lot of depth. Got it because I wanted tea while traveling and was intrigued by the little squares its divided into – breaking off a square seemed like a tidy and unobtrusive way to enjoy puerh at work (I work in a lab, so my tea set up is fairly minimalist so I can grab a cup between experiments). Takes a while for the squares to break up on their own, so if you don’t have a way to manually help it along, the first few cups are fairly light. Sort of nondescript woody flavor with some chocolate undertones and some brown sugar sweetness. There’s nothing offensive about it, but also nothing that really excites me either. Serves its purpose, but probably wouldn’t go out of my way to acquire more.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Chocolate, Wood
Miro Tea does an admirable job of bringing a lot of diverse selection to their tea room; although I might not buy my dry leaf from them directly, I feel like I’m stealing tea when I get a whole pot of quality oolong like this for $6.50. Meanwhile other Seattlelites meander outside with their $8 venti cups of ice. Sorry, is that my budding tea snob showing? Feel free to bean me with Bigelow.
They may have brewed this a little light for me, and I can’t compare it to their BRR #1 (I assume one exists, although I didn’t see it on their current list.) However it met all expectations of delicious, robust malt and smoke flavors. Without being “barbecue tea.” BRR generally quickly becoming my favorite winter breakfast tea.
Flavors: Malt, Raisins, Smoke
Time for my Monday cuppa black tea! Stared at my work tea cupboard for a while and decided on this one. Letting it steep longer this time. I added cream & it seems to be overpowering the tea flavor which is fairly delicate, or maybe it’s just that I need something to bonk me over the head on this particular Monday. This will do for now. Perhaps it will lend me the subtlety that the day seems to be lacking so far…
Not sure what’s all in this. It’s very floral, black tea with rose petals, little blue flowers (lavender-ish looking), there’s some sort of flavoring, but it’s been so long since I drank a big variety of tea on a regular basis for me to accurately place. Reading their menu (at mirotea.com), it looks almost like it could be the Birthday Tea, but seems not to be. ? Regardless, for a floral somewhat fruity tea, it’s very pleasant. My brother bought me an ounce of this, I see no problem finishing it off. Am excited to learn of this tea cafe & looking forward to exploring more of the teas they have available! It looks like they have some good ones. And they seal their teas nicely in reusable foil bags, similar to coffee bags, but with a good tight zip lock. I like to buy smaller amounts more frequently (this is a one ounce bag), so I’m not too concerned that it’ll get stale before I finish it. It’s better than some other options I’ve seen. Nom!
