Personal rant, not meant to offend anyone: I really wish that the owners of tea companies would put their teas in the database. I get tired of having to enter the info on every new tea I sample, and sometimes lately I don’t bother to write a review, because I’m busy, I’m tired, & I don’t really feel like doing it. I’d rather just enjoy the tea.
And I did enjoy this one, another sample from the tea club. When I opened the envelope, the aroma drew me in, heady & rich, almost like a perfume (but not grotesque, like perfumes are to me). Multiple steepings carried me through the morning & had a cool soothing effect, like the feeling of clay, even though the tea was actually hot, of course. Kind of sweet, reminiscent of Mandala’s Black Beauty (but different), never bitter. It’s lovely..
