From Teaism

Beautiful full leaf black tea from China with lots of gold tips and simply elegant taste. This tea has a very forgiving steep time – you can brew it for 5-6 minutes and it won’t turn bitter.

Wiry, lightly oxidized black tea with lots of golden tips. Golden is great word to describe this tea: a honeyed aroma is prominent, with undertones of hay and quince. Reddish brown color in the cup. With careful brewing, can be brewed twice, but initial brew should be less than boiling. This review is for the 2012 harvest.

I am back from another vacation :) This time I was in Washington D.C. and of course I must stop for Tea. I’ve been wanting to try this tea house out for awhile. I will post a review in the Discover/Explore section.

I couldn’t decide on a brew, so my friend just picked two closely related blacks and we sampled both. This was the one I chose. This comes in a very generous amount. The liquor is a deep chocolate crismon soup. The aroma is of dry cocoa and malt. The flavor is a deep coco tone and smooth. It tasted similar to a decent quality Jin Jui Mei. The last sip finished with a silky caramel tone. I really did like this tea, but it was on the pricey side. I know of other businesses where I can get much higher quality for about half the price. I believe the price was for the experience of drinking tea within sight of the Capital.
