Taster’s Review:

I am usually a little put off by the prospect of trying a bagged and/or sacheted tea, because let’s face it, loose leaf is better.  It just is.  However, I do try to go into the experience of trying a new to me sacheted tea with an open mind.  And so far, the teas that I’ve tried from Eden Grove have been impressive – and all have been sacheted teas!  Eden Grove is definitely making a believer out of me.

This Lovers Leap Estate Indigo Black Tea with Essence of Peony from Eden Grove is quite nice.  The Ceylon is flavorful and smooth.  It has a very pleasing, even taste to it.  It’s sweet and has some malty tones to it, and I taste no bitterness whatsoever.  It’s good.

I taste hints of flower to this as well, and I presume that it is the peony essence that I’m tasting.  I can’t recall ever tasting peony in the past, so I don’t have a memory of what peony tastes like to be able to compare what I’m tasting now.  It is a sweet, gently floral taste.  It isn’t sharp, and it doesn’t have a perfume-y taste to it.  It’s an enjoyable flower essence.

Overall, a really nice cup of tea.  It’s a mellow tasting black tea, not one I’d want to start the day off with, but, one that I’d love to drink in the afternoon when I want a little bit of a pick-me-up to keep me going.  It’s good.
