Easy Going Black Tea
I have been kindly surprised with this black tea . In spite his clear and defined taste character it didn’t become bitter or astringent. It is, after long infusions, mild and sweet even when you forgot to pour it in a timely way.
Other clear -but less important- advantage is his value for money price.Patricio Hurtado

Now I understand a bit about tea maturity
I have heard about it but this is the first tea that has made me experience the interesting thing about tea maturity. I bought the first pack in 2012 because I had read about Leo’s name in a tea merchant’s catalogue here in Switzerland. It was great taste and good value, but when I opened a second pack that I bought last month, the aroma of the leaves instantly tell me it had already become something else. The sweetness was less obvious but much deeper with a prominent ‘woodsy’ tone. The infusion much deeper and mellow and the taste longer. There is something dancing on the taste buds that I don’t think I can write even in German. Maybe it is music in tea taste.
I am just so disappointed that it is sold out now. I hope the new stock will mature to the same wonders!

This tea can mature
Hello Tony, Yes this tea can mature. Please refer to Leo’s Tea Guardian article on storage for storing this tea for maturity.Siu PB
Himalayan Finest Flowery
With hands wrapped around a warming cup of Himalayan Finest Flowery, my thoughts turn to the approaching winter festivities. The tea’s distinctive aroma would mingle nicely with the scent of a balsam wreath hanging nearby. In addition to its woodsy notes, Himalayan Finest Flowery has a silky mouthfeel with hints of rosewater, kumquat and freshly grated nutmeg. Stomp the snow off your boots and come sit by the fire while I pour you some. Would you like a warm gingerbread man to go with it?Karen Ager
A good tea but didn’t like the smell
Received a free sample of this tea, the flavour was enjoyable but I didn’t like the smell. For me it smelt like very strong pollen and irritated my nose. If you like this smell (like freshly cut grass) then this tea would be ok for you.Mark Radymski

I am amused
@Patricio I am amused to read this review. I can sense the fire in your belly when you wrote this. To express openly one’s feelings of a product in an internet shop is a virtue that I hope will gradually grow in more people. Some of our customers may want to maintain a low profile. Some maybe too busy.
A lot of common efforts is still needed to build awareness and appreciation in the market for fine tea of this quality level. Consumer comments and reviews definitely mean immense help. They are also morale boosters to us here. I am happy that you like the tea. I have worked hard in order to get this kind of quality.
A big thank you from my heart.
