Review of Filiz Cayi (Tea Special, Black Tea)

5 of 104 of 55 of 563 of 100

A very light tea...aroma suggestive of rice and cereal. Muted flavor. A hint of wintergreen in the finish. Not terribly complex, however. I'm starting to get a sense for a particular character that Turkish teas have, and this was recognizable as such.

The leaf of this tea is so finely broken that it falls through most tea strainers...only one of my strainers, the finum basket infuser, could handle it.

Like other Turkish teas I've tried, this was surprisingly gentle given its finely-broken nature, but I'd still prefer something whole-leaf.

The price is absolutely dirt cheap though. For an organically-grown tea this smooth, it's a steal!
