This one is okay. It smells amazing, so I thought it would taste better. It’s slightly vegetal and a little smoky, with a hint of sweetness…didn’t really detect any bitterness. The issue I have with the tea is that it’s pretty weak. I steeped it for 3 minutes for the first steep and 10 minutes for the second steep…I didn’t try a third steep because it still seemed weak after a 10 minute steep. I have a lot of it, and I don’t mind drinking it, but, I won’t buy it again. It was really cheap, $10.99 for 8 oz…I’ll try a long first steep next time to see if I can get one solid cup out of the leaves.

I’m a tea novice, and I’m loving my introduction to the World of Tea. I started getting into tea about 4 years ago when I lived in Brooklyn, NY. At first, I stayed with green teas, and took black teas completely for granted. However, in the last couple years I have enthusiastically added them to my daily routine. I love strong Assam black teas in the morning, and Japanese green teas in the afternoon, especially matcha and gyokuro. I have recently become a big fan of Keemuns. I’m looking forward to learning about new teas on this site and talking to other tea lovers!

As far as ratings go, don’t trust me. I’m a high rater, and I’m easily impressed. If I rate a tea lower than 70 (which is going to happen rarely, it seems), I probably will not drink that tea again. I will splurge for some teas at times, but I love a bargain, so you will often see me celebrating under-appreciated everyday teas.
