Black tea with mango pieces, mango flavoring and marigold flowers. Excellent hot or iced!
There is certainly a sweet fruity aroma from the pouch! Huge chunks of mango, so I try to get at least one in the infuser each time. It looks like there is at least two types of black tea in the blend – one of which is CTC. The flavor is certainly fruity on both steeps. I’m not sure if I could distinctly call it mango – but I don’t know what else I would guess the flavor is. There is a mangoish starchiness to the second steep. The black tea is brisk enough! I like the fruitiness (whatever it happens to be) with the dark tea. I’m just crossing my fingers the flavor doesn’t fade for a while. Great for summer and I don’t even have to try it iced — it would be great iced.

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!
