This is one of those teas where I ask myself: “Where do I start?”

A fine Georgian black tea complex enough to be satisfying but never pretentious. It feels like an accessible yet refined ‘peoples’ tea. Fruity, floral, woody, malty. Delicate, lightly stewed fruits and grape verging on muscatel with a touch of butter, leather, salt. Rosewater and cherrywood base. The malt never dominates. Balanced astringency. Some spiciness in feel but not in taste. Nice fruity, tangy aftertaste. The body is damn near perfect for a stands-on-its-own black tea.

Granted I only had enough of this from a swap with Martin to have 3 days of western prep, it seems like a versatile tea. It has that comforting sweater weather feeling that made the past few mornings’ cloudy cold snap more bearable, but it’s also light and bright enough to feel refreshing on this sunnier and warmer spring morning. It sits so right with me. Thanks, Martin :)

You are welcome! I know I have to buy some more again. It is one of the finest black teas I had! As you said, good on its own.

ashmanra

That sounds wonderful! I have seen a Georgian tea for sale in Chapel Hill but never tried it. May need to have a look again.

Martin Bednář

ashmanra: I can get some, if you want to. Or O have something still in cupboard, but I don’t know how much. Feel free to write me an E-mail.

ashmanra

Thank you for the offer, Martin! I may take you up on that!

And another tasting note of this one. Raising the rating from 95 to 99 as it is my all time favourite I guess.

Yes, as you know, I have birthday today! And this day needs great tea. And that one from morning wasn’t it. But quarter of a century over here? To sum up… I had completely different thoughts about last 5 years. But it is like that and I don’t want to change it. If I decided otherwise I won’t met so perfect guys around me. Not only Steepster people, nor classamtes, nor co-workers. It’s not perfect life, but who needs a perfect life? It would be boring.

But this tea is close to perfect and no way boring. I won’t repeat myself, just read other notes :)

Yummy, malty jam. No bitterness even prepared grandpa as usual, full-bodied, just perfect for this day!

Although there could be many nice songs, for example this one helped to go through the panic attack yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHCV_ro2U_A (if you google translate lyrics, you will lose the play with words, but you will get basic thought of song)

Thank you all that I could be member of this community. I like it here because of you guys!

Happy birthday! I hope it’s filled with lots of beautiful tea.

Roswell Strange

Happy Birthday!!!

ashmanra

Happy birthday, again, Martin! First song is one I knew well, and the second one is really awesome. I didn’t see a translation in the comments but listening to it was quite nice!

Martin Bednář

Managed to translate it a bit; check that out :)

Just don’t edit it. I want that you all can enjoy it :)

Leafhopper

Happy birthday! Yes, Steepster is a great community. Wishing you more good tea in the year to come.

Teatotaler

Happy birthday, Martin! 24 June is my birthday too. It seems that there are three of us here born on 24 June. :)

ashmanra

Wow! Happy birthday to you, also, Teatotaler!

ashmanra

Martin: Thank you for the translation! That was a lot of work!

Martin Bednář

Teatotaler: Happy birthday then for you as well! So, we are at least 3 on Steepster with same day. Oh, and it is just one of 365 days.

ashmanra: I just wanted you all to understand that song. It is easier to listening to English songs and then translating it for myself to Czech than vice versa. But I am happy that you liked it even without translation :)

Everyone: Thank you for being here, despite Steepster looks like in agony. I hope it will survive as long as possible. I am glad to have at least few people with other contacts. I was even thinking making some alternative for this page, but busy with school, so… it is still just in my head.

Nattie

Happy birthday for yesterday Martin and teatotaler! What a coincidence that there are so many of us here on Steepster with the same birthday! (:

Happy birthday Martin!

Martin Bednář

Thank you mrmopar!
