Country of Origin
As Darjeeling goes,this has a nice subtle taste but I guess I lean toward a stronger more am dominant tea. A good tea just not for me.
I love this tea so much because of its sophistication of Darjeeling while enjoying the health benefits of high quality Oolong. One of my must-have teas.
Simply a great tea! I might recommend just a slightly higher temperature than recommended, and while one teaspoon is good for 3 brewings, I would increase the brew time by 10 seconds or so on the third brew.
I'm a guy who's not into reviews, but I'm really enjoying this tea! Happy Thanks Giving!
Each person will have their preferences. I have been an Earl Grey fan for years and I use macha for smoothies. Recently I've begun exploring other teas and combinations of teas. I found that macha can be added to black tea, tastes good and is even more healthy that way. Green and black go good together. I often make my hot teas with rice milk or with milk from pasture raised cows. I make it very strong and like it that way. In these warmer days I make black ice teas with lemon of course and I really love the hibiscus, Wow!
So it really is an individual preference what you chose and how you brew it, with innumerable possibilities. But you know that. So all I can say that really serves as a review of value for a perspective customer is why I continue to patronize The Whistling Kettle; Freshness and high quality coupled with fair prices. These people are all about tea. I did my searching and sampling. Now, I need only to return here for the best to enjoy without looking any further. That's it.
