From Renegade Tea Estate

Evening Lilac has one of the most distinct tastes among our black teas and as the name hints, it will take you to the world of flowers. Both the smell and taste has a full bouquet of lilacs and jasmine. This juicy and silky taste has won our hearts and hopefully, it will do the same with you!
NB! Tea will be ready for shipping in the second part of June 2021!

Backlog: Got 100 grams of this because I thought I’d really like it. Renegade Tea mostly does large servings of 50 grams, and I almost picked the white, but I decided too late as it ran out of stock so I got more of this tea and an older one, First Kiss, which is no longer on the site.

This one’s extremely floral and heavy with Lilac, and juicy and smooth like cranberry juice. In contrast to the sweeter notes, it’s got a little bit of a buckwheat dryness behind the floral component.

I haven’t done a proper session with this one in a while, but it’s a soft, resilient tea lacking astringency. It can get a little bitter like jasmine after an extremely long steep, so grandpa style might not be the way to go unless I figure it out a different way.

That’s all I’ll right for now, but it’s a tea I’m having a hard time getting through. I enjoy it when I have it, but I have to be in the mood for it.

Your reviews of the teas you sent always make me want to get to them! How did I end up with such a large backlog? Surely it doesn’t have anything to do with my tea-buying habits…

Lol you should have some of this one from our last swap-so not to worry!

And it’s thanks to the swaps and traveling tea boxes. I’ve just slowly caught up on my backlog with more to go. Did you get to try this one yet? I wanted to see what someone else thought of it pretty badly because it’s extremely unique for a black. The dryness is what personally makes me undecided about the tea so far, but it’s really nice in cooler weather.


Yes, you gave me 50 g in our last swap. :) I’ve been holding off on it partly because I’ve been finishing off other black teas and partly because I remember you telling me the brewing parameters were unusual. Cooler weather is a few months away, so I may have to try it before then.
