Commercial Description

...A large amount of leaf tips contribute to a seductive aroma of rosewood and tea blossoms and layers of buttery and floral notes. The finish is slightly brisk and lingering. This tea is produced without chemicals, but is not organic certified.

A vaguely Darjeeling-like tea with dark, vegetal and herbaceous aspects. I'm noticing a trend amongst all of the teas I sample from Rare Tea Republic. This is one tea though that I found did not particularly fit its description: I would not describe it as "brisk", nor did I notice many "floral notes".

The aroma is complex without being in-your-face. The aroma has some strange qualities, almost suggesting fava beans or asparagus. I could do without these qualities, but they only emerge briefly and then quickly vanish. Towards the end of the cup, a faint wintergreen aroma develops. Some of the muscatel grape nuances are present from the start. The end of the cup had a suggestion of cinnamon in the finish.

Surprisingly sweet! The end of the cup almost tastes sweetened.

Before sampling the teas from Rare Tea Republic, I had only tried one tea from Jun Chiyabari, a TGFOP from Imperial Tea Garden; this tea was much more nuanced than that one, but it was less edgy, a quality I like. I honestly prefer that tea by flavor, but I prefer this tea by aroma; it was more subtle. This tea, however, is considerably pricier.

I found that, in contrast to the other teas from Rare Tea Republic, which required less leaf to produce a flavorful cup, this tea required considerably more leaf to come out the way I liked. That, to me, made this tea seem pricier than the other offerings from this company, which, for black teas, stretched quite far with a small amount of leaf.
