A great way to close the day. A house blend of Organic China white and Organic Darjeeling long leaf green teas. Naturally floral but with a woodsy undernote. Soothing!
I give it the title Super Nice bc that was the first thought that came to me. And it is. It's not exotic, but it is comforting. It has a nice (there's that word again) taste. It's enjoyable, reliable and affordable. All good characteristics when you drink as much tea as I do. I'm a green tea fanatic, but sometimes I just don't want as much caffeine. It also re-steeps pretty well. I learned a tip about re-steeping. Do it while the leaves are still hot from the first steep. This seems to make a difference. This tea is very worth trying if you haven't yet.
The white and green tea work very well together, I notice a honey/floral aroma and flavor. An excellent cup of tea.
Use 1 Tbsp. of leaf per 8 oz. cup.
Pour boiling water over leaves.
Steep 2-3 mins.
Milk not recommended.
This is our recommendation for those that are curious about White Tea or find it too subtle. White tea - variously known as Bai Mu Dan, Pai Mu Tan or White Peony - is lightly processed and has a woodsy taste. To add some mellowness to the taste, we've blended it with Organic Makaibari Darjeeling Long Leaf Green. It adds a slight floral quality and balances out the woodsy nature of the White. For many, this is their favorite White Tea. The blend is Certified Organic so go ahead, give it a try!
Great to have a green tea with that strong bergamot flavor of Earl Grey. Thought it would be too powerful to have often, but I've gotten quite addicted to the flavor.
This is a perfect afternoon pick me up or something akin to "dessert" tea. Been sipping this for over a decade. The scent is fab too w/ a touch of rose petals.
I start craving Noel tea from the moment that crisp cooler temps hit in the Fall and drink it straight til Spring. Besides the cinnamon spice, the almonds make it special! Even then it's lovely with some Irish Soda Bread around St. Patrick's besides the obvious Nov-Dec Holiday crush.
A great pick me up in the afternoon!
This is my early morning tea—love it. I make a 2-cup pot. The first cup is gentle, delightful green, not at all bitter (4–5 minute steep). The second cup is stronger of course, and a little bitter—but then I add a teaspoon of turbinado sugar—and it becomes absolute nectar!
Hint: because the leaves are so long, it's a bit difficult to get a consistent measure for this tea, just using a spoon. Sometimes it was becoming too strong. I picked up an electronic gram scale, which solved the problem—5.5 grams for my 2-cup morning pot.
Nostalgia. I did not have such good tea in decades. Smooth and fragrant. it is exactly what you would expect from a top quality Darjeeling.
My husband and I love using this. It allows us to make the exact serving size of the tea that we desire. Now I am buying a second one so we can make two different types of tea at the same time.
June, 2023. Denver, Colorado.
First thing that struck me about this batch of Makaibari Autumnal black tea from 2022 was the aroma of the tea in the lovely packaging that it arrived in. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular but this batch was a pleasant surprise as there was a promising fragrance from the package! So far ... so good!
The fragrance in the cup once I brewed the first cup was, again, promising. When I sipped it, I was very pleasantly surprised with the flavour. It definitely had the Darjeeling magic that I have loved since I was a student in Darjeeling many years ago.
I then added a touch of milk and sugar - my preferred way of enjoying my Darjeeling tea - and was able to close my eyes and thoroughly enjoy the experience!!
I am contemplating purchasing some more of this batch of tea if it is still in stock!
I've tried Makaibari Autumnal from Slvertips Tea several times before but I think this is the best I've ever had!
Very pleasantly surprised and satisfied customer!!!
I tried this tea at a friends house and had about 4 cups. It was smooth and had several different flavor tones. It is not inexpensive, but I can not stop buying it. As my friend who introduced me to it said :”I don’t drink wine, but I have expensive tastes in tea…”
Elegant. Thats how I desribe this tea. Its a special occasion treat.
it and linger over this glorious morning tea. Rich, smooth and think of the rolling hills in Ireland. Love this tea!!!
Makabari second flush is my favorite tea and I've tried plenty. It just hits the note of richness without being bitter or overpowering yet holds up to the addition of milk.
We have been drinking New Vith every day since discovering it at the SilverTips tea room in Tarrytown 20(?) years ago. We were VERY sorry to see the shop close after enjoying it for so long, but remain glad that we still have a local mail-order source for our favorite Ceylon brew.
I always offer this tea to my friend when she visits. I have a colleague who has helped me so much recently. And my boss is always so supportive. So I bought three bags as Christmas presents and can’t wait to hear how each one enjoys this very special bag of awesomeness.
I have been really digging this tea this month; so much so that I finally ran out and needed to buy another bag. I adore this tea’s mellow, smooth flavor, which seems to change a bit with each sip. Having only had bagged oolong previously, I had no idea it would become my favorite but it has!
