Not wowed by this tea; I think I’ve had tastier black pearls. It just wasn’t as rich and strong as I was looking for, even with 6 pearls for about 10 oz. Nothing wrong with the tea per se, just wasn’t what I expected of black pearls.

Ok I’ll admit it – I don’t remember the last time I drank black tea. It’s been several months……
A couple of my tea friends have tried, and liked, this one in the last couple of days so I thought I should pull out my sample and try it too. My first thought was – why have I not been drinking blacks, my second thought was – what is this suppose to taste like, and my third – I really miss this.
So….. I’m out of touch, but this is working for me. I’m not getting the chocolate notes they were mentioning. I am finding sweet potato – starchiness – some malt, and maybe a touch of fruit. This is lighter than I was expecting. That sounds negative, but I like it (or am just happy to be drinking black tea again).

Nice to see you posting again. I thought blacks were your favourite teas.

Dexter

Blacks are my favorite teas. I didn’t really drink any tea at all over the summer (rediscovered iced coffee) and I’ve been drinking mostly flavored stuff the last couple of weeks. This is the first straight black I’ve had in forever…. I think I miss it, need to be drinking more (not to mention the huge amount I have in my cupboard).

Sil

yes, yes you do! drink moar!

Cavocorax

Yay for getting back into tea!
I totally drifted away in the spring and switched to coffee, but I’m back with tea – at least two cups a day anyway, and I know that feeling when you rediscover why you like unflavoured teas. <3

OMGsrsly

(Sorry not sorry about the iced coffee!)

Saw this in Cavo’s feed this morning, so figured i could start my day by trying it as well. 5 pearls for 3.5 min, just under boiling. This is a smooth brew, there’s no bitterness and i’m for sure getting some chocolate like notes at the back end of the sip. Not sure i’d keep this in my cupboard, but i’d happily add this to an order to get free shipping heh.

time to get to work on sipdowns…this weekend spent with tea friends means i’m back up to 87!

Kristal

You’re still under 100 though :)

I was at like 17(!) but now I’m up to 36 and I feel bad lol.

Cavocorax

:D
I’m trying to remember who else had a black pearl tea with a profile like this, but at least this one is very convenient to order (and FAST), so that’s a huge plus for CitizenTea.

Dexter

I have some of these but haven’t tried them yet – need to do that soon. The best pearls I’ve had were from Mandala – but they haven’t had them for years :( Second would have to be Teavivre – but would be interested in any others that people like.

Sil

that’s my order as well dexter. haha. that’s not to say that these are bad..just not quite what i want full time in my cupboard – i’d pick up teavivire’s for that.

Cavocorax

Oh, I forgot about Teavivre’s too! I’ll have to keep them in mind because they were a good price. :D

(Those Mandala ones WERE the best. :( /cue intense sadness/)

I’m back! (Let’s see for how long?)

But I met up with VariaTEA, Sil, Kittenna and Christina today in Toronto, we swapped tea, caught up on what we could in a few hours, and… I miss you guys. :P

I haven’t made an actual tea order in… months, but I bought a bunch of samples from CitizenTea last month, and so far I’m pretty impressed. No, they’re not the fanciest-pantsest of tea companies out there, but it’s good quality, good prices, excellent customer service, and I love the packaging.

I brewed up three pearls, and gave it 4 minutes. The result was a nice bright brew with chocolate and honey notes, and a smooth finish. I left it unfinished for half an hour, and when I came back to polish it off, it wasn’t bitter at all either. That’s what I’m looking for.

I would definitely order more the next time they offer free shipping etc.

Roswell Strange

Welcome back! Even if it’s only temporary ;)

Sil

it was fun! always nice getting a chance to catch up on things and talk about nothing in particular haha
