Maybe Assam specialists won't find it that special, but for me it was quite a revelation. It has a spicy kick indeed, similar to Assams, but most of all I tasted a wonderful subtle sweetness, that I had not experienced before, at least not this way. It seemed like a hint of strawberry, although that might only be my ve...

Half-litre pot at home. Pours nearly clear dark amber with no sediment. Clear aroma of black tea, with some spicy hints to it. Pure flavour of Assam tea with mild peppery hints and barely discernible notes of cocoa beans. Clean palate, with qqmildly rough hints and tannin touches. A clean and well-balanced drink, made ...

This tea has a very mild earthy aroma. The liquor is a pale amber. A tea that is 'light' on flavor, with no after taste. I was hesitant to try this just because it is from a non traditional growing area. I am underwhelmed with this tea. It might serve as a 'base' for blending or adding a flavor. Adding sugar or milk wo...

Yet another Colombian tea from the Bitaco estate. Thank you Simpson & Vail for the samples! It's been exciting how many of these I've been able to try lately, and I love every one. They are only subtly different, but I am still able to appreciate the differences. This one, as the name suggests, was the sweetest one I'v...

Another exquisite tea from the Bitaco estate in Columbia! This was a smooth black tea that tasted top-quality, but was a bit weak on the resteep. Tastes better when brewed strongly. I served this tea to two different people as well and they both loved it.

I've been trying different grades and batches or variants of ...

This was a light tea with a strong savory flavor, that tasted distinctly like lobster!

Another sample from Simpson & Vail, thank you! I've been loving all the black teas I've tried from the Bitaco estate in Colombia, and this is another one. They are all excellent! I'm glad to see this garden and its teas taking o...

Colombian Black Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Black Tea – Region: Colombia

Aug. 6th, 2017

This tea smells floral and fruity. The taste is light and not very astringent but it has a subtle and pleasant bitterness to it. Even though it's lighter bodied, I felt full after drinking it. It's a very satisfying tea and worth the money. Also, this tea is unusually good when you re-steep it, it still maintains much ...

This tea is incredible! Thank you to Simpson & Vail for sending it to me as a sample. I was recently very wowed by a Colombian black tea sold by Harney & Sons, and I was eager to try this one. It is very similar, but I think even better. I suspect this is probably a higher-grade tea from the same tea garden.

An unexpectedly top-notch tea, unlike anything else I've tried. I'm always incredibly curious to try teas from a new country or region, and I was super excited to try this one, since there are very few teas grown in the Americas. Normally, I approach these sorts of teas more as an interesting novelty, not expecting t...
