This tea has become a smash hit in the office, since I brought it there a few days back. Sweet, fruity tea with little to no astringency, and a light body. Couldn’t stand up to milk. A great tea for the price.

Also – I hadn’t noticed, but I’ve been over a year at steepster! Thank you all for being so wonderful. I am so glad that I found this site :)


Ooh! Congrats!


Yay for being here for an anniversary!


Thank you all, wonderful people!

I can’t call this remarkable, but this is certainly a very good black. Just that my favourites are better.

A subtle, elegant black. Refined flavor. My favorite thing about this tea is the flash of orchid-like aroma that arises, seemingly out of nowhere, a few seconds after taking a sip.

Even when brewed strong, it does not get too black or weight the palate down with heavy taste.

Excellent price for the quality.
