HELLO Steepsters! It’s been MONTHS and MONTHS and I’m back! I’ve missed you! I just have to get used to the changes around here! LOL
Anyhow…LOVING this tea!
I enjoy sharing tea with friends and family…however…Assam Black Tea #8 from Zi Chun Tea Company is one that is quite hard to part with!

Iron Goddess Medium Grade Oolong Tea from Tea Setter is a pure delight! I’ll get right to it, folks! It’s been a while since I have enjoyed a Medium Grade Iron Goddess this much! It’s Semi-Floral and Semi-Juicy with a touch of juiciness and a hint of sweet. It has a fair amount of thickness to it for an Iron Goddess, too!
It stands up to multiple infusions. It’s amazing as-is and straight-up but very nice both hot and cold as well as with additions such as agave nectar. Delightful!
As many of you know I don’t like Hibiscus – but – I will try just about any tea once. This was a pleasant surprise! I’m so glad I tried it! The hibiscus is VERY gentle and totally makes sense. Paired with the cream – it’s a real winner! Both flavors are even-steven and done to perfection without interrupting the medium black Ceylon tea base. This is good hot or cold. It has a lovely combo of sour and sweet and cream and punch. All equal parts. A delight!

Here are some bits:
I agree this tea has multiple layers that are quite complex. I think that is what I like best about this offering! That AND that it’s certified by the Ethical Tea Partnership AND Fair Trade! That’s ALWAYS a PLUS.
It’s been a while since I had a Queen Mary tea and while I was in B-Lo area this past weekend I stopped by my new favorite store front…TeaLeafs. It was just a quick stop to get more of the beloved Fig Formosa Oolong that both hubby and I LOVE. But I bought two other teas, too! This was one of them!
This is bold, a bit brash, malty, and a semi-crusty floral type flavor to it especially in the aftertaste. The more it cools at room temp – it gets even more malty…both in taste/flavor and texture.
This is a beautifully bold tea to wake up to!
Is that grenadine? Why…YES…YES…it IS! Lovely! It’s a nice juicy flavor and nicely done – not over the top! The vanilla and cream flavors are just as nicely done, too!
Tea For All Reasons sure knows how to blend specialTEAs…and I love that about them! The Black tea base is of medium strength and the flavors really makes sense and shine here. They don’t SCREAM…but they shine!
