The first thing that struck me is that it looks and smells exactly like gunpowder tea, even though it isn't called that anywhere. It's not a problem, I even have an idea why one might not want to market gunpowder tea as gunpowder tea (if that really is what this is). The origin and a name might sound more enticing that...

For a free sample from Upton, I was very impressed with this tea. I have not explored many black teas yet, and am not usually a huge fan of them. I prefer green and white tea. This being said, I decided to try this out since it showed up in my last shipment from Upton. I was quite surprised when I steeped my first cup....

A very enjoyable tea for a very reasonable price. I agree with Upton that it is versatile, and I found it easy to enjoy (I shared it with two others and they both also liked it). This is the second excellent Indonesian tea I've sampled recently, and I think it ties for my two favorite teas from this region.

The dry...

Oct. 20th, 2014

The aroma of this tea is sweet and malty, there are notes of berries and raisins with a hint of roasted peanuts at the finish. I shan't deny it, the dry leaves smell quite yummy, but I do love my sweet black teas.

After that especially enjoyable sniffing, it is time for tasting! The first sip is very sweet and quite...

Mountain Organic Indonesian Green from Tea at Sea

Style: Green Tea – Region: West Java, Indonesia

Feb. 6th, 2014

The aroma is sweet like honey with a touch of baking bread and flowers, also there are notes of lettuce and kelp. Steeping the tea brings out notes of minerals, orange blossoms and vegetation.

The taste is fruity, like plums, and fades to vegetal with a finish of cherry sweetness. Yummy

Feb. 3rd, 2014

The aroma is sweet, like honeyed bread and green beans. There is also a hint of orchid. Once steeped the sweetness and orchid become stronger while the vegetal tones are more of an undertone.

The taste is good, mixing honey and baking bread with a touch of orchid, as it cools it takes on a savory lettuce like tone....

This is dark and earthy. It's less brisk than Indian or Sri Lankan teas, but not sweet either. As is usually the case with this merchant, the quality for the money is wonderful. I don't want this tea every day, but it is a pleasant change from routine. Good stuff!

This tea it good. It's strong and not too bitter. I've tried a lot of other black teas like it. I added cream and sugar.

Thank you Marlena for sharing this one!

Aroma is unique, and hard to describe, very clean and cool, yet deep. A suggestion of wintergreen, like I've only ever encountered in Ceylon teas from the Uva region. I can see the licorice and grilled vegetables Marlena describes, as well. The aroma suggests savory qualiti...

As it brews, this has a licorice and grilled veggie smell. It is less malty than a Ceylon and a bit tangier. There is a very nice roasted edge to it.
