Product Desription:

An exquisite tea sourced from Indonesia’s Kertasarie Estate, this is a favorite of those who love a strong and stimulating flavor in their cup. Indonesia’s high altitudes, volcanic soil and tropical climate produce a dark and rich tasting tea that is truly unique.

Tasters Review:

I LOVE trying teas from different estates, and, of course, different countries!  I LOVE learning about the histories of the estates!  When I saw this one from the Indonesia’s Kertasarie Estate I HAD to try it!

The first time I tried this tea my initial thoughts were…a bold brew, slightly malty, and rich.  I thought it was ‘good’ for mornings and mid-afternoon lulls.  But I have to admit…the more I drank of this wonderful tea the more I liked it…the more I appreciated it.  It’s a delicious cup!  It’s much more meaningful than I first gave it credit for!  Another interesting thing about this tea is it holds up to multiple infusions well – for a black tea.  The 2nd infusion seemed to be sweeter and juicier yet still bold and very satisfying!

This could easily be a staple in any black tea lovers tea cabinet!

    I like the colours of the box.


Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
