drank Sabah Loose Tea by Sabah Tea
103 tasting notes

I have had this tea a couple more times now and I find it to be a very “light” tasting black tea. The leaves of this tea are cut so fine I need a tea bag to brew it. I have also tried the prepackaged tea bags of this that someone gave me and found the tea to be too weak even with using 2 bags to one 8oz cup. The loose leaf is better but I use more leaves per cup than any other black tea I have. On the other hand I have purposely left the tea brewing for at least 10 mins and absolutely no bitterness whatsoever.

I am pretty new to trying different types of loose leaf teas. Growing up we only ever had Chinese restaurant tea or bagged orange pekoe. Later on I tried genmai cha at the Japanese restaurants and added that permanently to my tea cupboard.

So far, I like oolongs and black. Most often I drink straight teas but I do like some flavoured ones as long as they don’t taste fakey or chemically. I would like to try more greens, whites and more Rooibos’ as well as anything that doesn’t have caffeine in it to add to my cupboard.

An attempt at a rating system:
90-100 worthy of being permanently stocked in my cupboard
80-89 great tea would love to have in my tea cupboard but probably in smaller quantities
70-79 very nice tea but I don’t necessarily have to have it
60-69 will drink it but not choose to stock it
50-59 prefer not to drink it unless it is all I have
<50 total miss for my tastes
