This tea is quite mild. I started with a hot cup and boiling water and after 5 minutes the tea was still light in color and tasted weak.
I was surprised to find the taste reminded me more of T&T’s Organic Oolong tea than a black tea. I actually got thinking that maybe they mixed up the tea and put oolong tea in the bag instead of black tea.
The tea tasted fine but it is not what I was looking for or expecting when I chose a black tea
This tea is sold in a large box of 100 individually packaged tea bags. The box is sturdy sturdy and attractive and it will be perfect for storing ‘overflow’ tea that won’t fit into my regular tea box.
I made another cup of this tea today. Once again I made it with boiling water steeped for 5 minutes. This time I didn’t get the oolong taste. It was still quite weak though. I would say the strength of the tea would be like Red Rose brand Orange Pekoe tea steeped for only 15 seconds (or maybe even a bit weaker than that).
It did taste good though, just weak/mild. I think I will eventually finish the box of 100 bags but I am not sure if I will repurchase.
