Kenya Flowery Orange Pekoe

Style: Black Tea – Region: Kenya
Nov. 24th, 2018

This tea tastes okay, but there's nothing really special. It has a warm and earthy aroma that I feel is pretty common for half-decent black teas. It's drinkable even when it gets a bit bitter.
It's not bad for a tea this price if you just want something to drink every day, but there are better options out there for si...

Black Mao Feng

Based on my experiences with black gunpowder, I was not surprised that this doesn't taste like Mao Feng at all. It's more like other Chinese black teas I've had. It's got just a tiny little bit of sweetness but it's hardly there. It's pleasantly almost-bitter (but I did make it pretty strong).

The second cup tasted different, though, like jade oolong but g...

"Warming" is indeed the best word to describe this tea. It smells like baked goods: what comes to mind is Finnish christmas cookie dough. I can clearly taste the anise and the licorice, the cinnamon too, but I'm not sure about the sage, honeybush and orange. Actually, this tea tastes like anise and licorice but not tha...

Yunnan Flowery Orange Pekoe

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Yunnan, China
Aug. 4th, 2017

This tea smells similar to Simon Lévelt's Ruhuna Orange Pekoe. The leaves are more colourful, with many golden tones, but the aroma has a similar strong dried fruit quality. However, I don't think I'd describe it as plums, exactly. Raisins come to mind, or rather, a kind of spicy raisin cake.

The liqueur tastes ver...
