The aroma is a medium woodsy. Dark, twisted leaves. The liquor, after a five minute steep, is a very dark brown. Flavor is good, with a mild spicy after taste. This tea will be added to my regular rotation. Easy to sip all day.

Beautiful large leaves. The aroma is wood and spice, not pronounced. The liquor is a medium amber after a 5 minute steep. Taste is clean with a slight malt after taste. I'd say this is a good tea for sipping. For me, no sugar or milk needed.

Mauritius from Chado Tea

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

75 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 3rd, 2021

First I need to mention I do not venture into 'flavored' tea territory very often. The aroma (dried and brewed) is unmistakably vanilla. Pleasant and brings to mind a bowl of ice cream. The liquor is a deep dark brown (steeped five minutes). The flavor has a solid vanilla taste. I might enjoy this tea now and then, but...

The aroma is nice, with a subtle sweetness, earning the 'winey' designation. The liquor brewed (five minutes) to a dark brown. Solid Assam taste with a slight tangy after taste that stays on the tongue. This tea might pair well with milk or sugar.

I was surprised by this tea. Once again, I think some teas grown outside of 'traditional' can have an usual taste. I have had tea from Kenya before and it was a bit of a disappointment. This tea turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Nice aroma, for has a very slight hint of fruit. The liquor is a beautiful deep ho...

Jul. 14th, 2020

I always buy tea bags for eating in restaurants. In the USA, Lipton is the tea offered. I have been trying different brands of bagged tea. This was my first taste of Typhoo. It has a strong taste that does not linger in your mouth. Very dark brew. Has a nice punch that will pair well with an omelette.

As expected the aroma is similar to a pine forest on fire, or a freshly paved road. For those new to lapsing souchong, it might be a bit intimidating. Those who are adverse to trying because of the aroma are missing out on a wonderful cup of tea. The liquor is a deep amber color. The flavor is nice. Once brewed, the bu...

I enjoyed this tea. This tea has a nice light yellowish amber color. Mild in taste with a nice hint of bergamot. Does not linger on the tongue. Milk, cream, or sugar would probably over power this tea.
