I already had last year (2017) version , but unfortunately I don´t have any notes.

But this is for 2018, 2nd Flush version (a sample):

Western, 3 grams per 350 ml, 4+ minutes

I had no idea which tea to make this afternoon, so I picked up a sample I have received with last order. It smelled wonderful, full-bodied black tea. After 4 minutes and something I have removed the strainer. The colour of infusion was wonderful clear and golden. In aroma it was still nice, black tea. But in taste it was massively malt. I don´t mind it and expect it in black teas. But this was bit overpowering all other tastes so I haven´t enjoyed it as much as few other Assam teas I had. A little, almost imperceptible there were fruit notes.

So, as for strong and bitter tea it´s certainly good one. But it wasn´t so awesome for me today.

Flavors: Bitter, Malt

190 °F / 87 °C 4 min, 0 sec 3 g 12 OZ / 350 ML

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
