From Upton Tea Imports

With its robust character and full mouth feel, this organic black tea selection from Colombia is a great morning eye opener. Notes of sweet milk chocolate predominate in both the aroma and the dark ruby copper cup. Hints of Burgundy and malt provide a lively complement to the rich flavor. A smooth finish completes an exceptional tea experience. A staff favorite.

Thank you, Michelle, for sharing this one with me! This steeped up dark and strong – I knew it would be a good choice for breakfast. And it is a good tea, but I wouldn’t say it’s a new favorite. There wasn’t any sort of wow factor with that first sip, but I have enjoyed sipping on it throughout the day today.

Samurai TTB #36

This was a strong, malty breakfast blend with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not very enjoyable straight, but it smoothed out nicely with a splash of milk.

I got a sample size of this tea and brewed about half western style. The wet leaf smells like caramel and woodsy tobacco. The first steep brewed up strong, but its more of a subtle tasting tea. Its not an astringent, metallic, or robust black tea flavor. A bit hard to describe, the front of the tea is a toasty, slight tobacco flavor, and the end of the tea is a toasty, hay, caramel finish. I’m thinking this is more like a cross between an oolong and a keemun, with a bit more of a roasty finish. As this first cup cools, I’m getting more light chocolate notes. The second steeping is a watered down version of the first, rather weak tea.
It certainly is interesting, not sure I’d go out of my way to purchase, but I might be tempted to add it to an order.
