Has anyone ever tried Al Wazah brand Tea??? I picked up a box few days ago from a Middle Eastern import shop.It was around $6 if I recall.This brand of Tea is popular in the Middle East and I have seen it in the grocery stores in Lebanon and Syria.Al Wazah means The Noble in Arabic.
The box I bought had FBOP1 on it,I'm still learning about the different Tea Grades so honestly I could'nt really tell you if it was up to par with other Teas of this grade.
Here's a pick I took of the leaves if anyone is interested in seeing them.
For my first brew,I brewed 4 teaspoons with 4 cups water and let it steep for 5 minutes.The result was a very deep and robust Tea that I would compare to the Twinnings Irish Breakfast Tea.It was good by itself,but with some Sugar it was better.I also tried a cup with milk and sugar and it was very good.Yesterday I brewed some Cardamom Tea using this stuff as well and it was very good.
Well,thats my short review/breakdown of Al Wazah.Here's the brands website if anyone is interested. http://www.alwazahtea.com/
