Where To Buy: McNulty’s
There’s isn’t a lengthy description listed on their website about their Java Santosa Tea, specifically, but I thought I would include some of their history in this post instead…
Since 1895, McNulty’s has been this country’s leading purveyor of choice coffees and rare teas. Our tradition of careful selection of only the finest is still true today.
A visit to our store is like a journey into another age. Located in the heart of New York’s Greenwich Village, the aura of a century long gone is timelessly preserved. Immediately upon entering the shop, one’s senses are delighted by the many aromas of coffees and teas from around the world. Sacks of coffee and chests of tea with obscure markings from far away lands are visible everywhere. Even the bins, chests, and scales, with which these products are stored and handled, date back to the previous century.
McNulty’s is just one of those places I want to visit before I expire. I mean, the history in the store, itself is amazing! It really is a historical place! The consistent years of business, operation, service to NYC as well as the Tea and Coffee Lovers of the world…it truly amazes me and I appreciate those businesses who have been around for a long time – plugging along thru good times and not-so-good times. They have seen it all since 1895, you know? WOW! What a treasure NYC has in McNulty’s!

I would like to take this time to write and review their Java Santosa Tea.
I would say this is a solid medium strength type black tea. The color is a nice, rich medium brown with orange-red hue.
It’s slightly sweet but a little java-bean…NOT coffee-tasting, per say, but a little bit of a hint underneath of the actual bean I guess.
This is a good and full tasting tea without being too bold and it’s NOT bitter.
If you are looking for a unique selection of quality teas and you are in NYC or online shopping for teas – check out McNulty’s!
1 thought on “Java Santosa Tea from McNulty’s”
Hi. I am trying Java Santosa from McNulty’s for the first time as I type this. I found this entry by Googling the tea name, and was tickled to find a review of the very same tea I’m drinking.
I’m enjoying this, which is notable because I haven’t been enjoying tea lately. See, I’ve changed my diet: I’m no longer eating sugar or flour. Since I’ve been drinking tea with lots of sugar for 20 years, you can imagine just how little I’m enjoying tea these days. I still drink it because I need the caffeine and the ritual of bringing a hot beverage to my lips and sipping.
Anyway, I find this tea to be flavorful and, as you say, not bitter. I have no idea how I’d have liked it during my sugar days, but it’s a welcome find for me now.
