Java Kertasarie Estate Tea from Simpson & Vail

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: Simpson & Vail

Product Description:

The medium-brown leaves brew to a greenish-brown leaf, with a flowery aroma. The amber cup of Java Kertasarie Estate is medium-bodied, brisker tasting than a Ceylon and has a flavorful infusion with a delightful oak cask aftertaste. Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

Tasters Review:

I’m revisiting this tea EARLY this Monday Morning – and let me tell you – this tea is MEANT for Monday Mornings!

Java Kertasarie Estate is a wonderfully bold, black tea.  It’s full of flavor and surely helped me wake-up when I really didn’t want to.

Each time I have tried this tea I have picked up on the notes of oak which is unique yet tasty.

This time around I noticed the floral notes in the beginning of the sip and a more masculine/woodsy finish.  A nice solid tea that both men and women will enjoy!  Not too girlie – yet – not overly rough and tough.  Although, I might say, more masculine than feminine, but I’m ok with that!

I think I like this one specifically for the boldness!  I tend to infuse more than the amount suggested because I like bold teas and this one certainly is.  It’s like Black Tea…to the 2nd Power!

All I need now is a New York Style Bagel with Cream Cheese!  My morning would then be complete!  Thank you for another great tea S&V!
