Aug. 22nd, 2021

I’m not too crazy about this tea… I wouldn’t drink it again unless someone served it to me. It has a weak aroma and the flavor is too bitter for me, it also has a somewhat “damp basement” flavor. It’s not the worst tea ever and it definitely is still edible but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink this ag...

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 2nd, 2021

This tea is a classic tasting black tea however it is not my favorite and it is mildly harsh (bitter) for me. It's still pretty smooth and not astringent which I like and I would drink it again if someone served it to me. It's a bit expensive though so I probably wouldn't buy it again since there's better stuff out the...

This tea is named somewhat differently in the US vs Europe but I'm pretty sure it's the same. In Germany it's "Assam TGFOP1 Ananda" with "Second Flush" underneath, whereas in the US the grade is omitted in the name, but clarified in the tea's description so I'm pretty sure it's the same thing.

Feb. 23rd, 2021

The first yellow tea I have ever tried and I am quite impressed. As soon as I got the dosage right (certainly higher than the recommended 11g/liter), I found a very interesting flavor profile (it was not that interesting with a lower dosage). It is somehow reminiscent of some Oolongs or First Flush Darjeelings, but mor...

I am still in the process of becoming a tea expert, so green tea aficionados might not want to take my verdict at face value.
