BOH is a huge Malaysian tea company, with fancy TV commercials and everything. I would neither hold that against them, nor in their favor, but thought it worth mentioning. This offering, Palas Afternoon, is apparently one of their top sellers, and one of few full-leaf teas they offer. The dried leaves are very full and large, with an enticing woody/earthy-sweet aroma. But sadly, that’s where any accolades end for me.

Unfortunately, this tea just reminds me of trying to eke a second cup of tea out of standard black tea leaves – a watery, less-than-satisfying cup results, leaving you thinking “well that’s a bummer”, and then you say oh well, and continue forward with sticking with just one infusion. Well, the problem with Palas Afternoon is that the initial infusion gives this impression. As such, it’s not dreadful, but it definitely leaves you with a feeling of “why bother”?

Fellow Teaviewer Vanessa gave this tea more glowing remarks than I am, and upon reading her review, I was excited to try it as she indicated it featured a unique flavor reminiscent of artichokes. I love artichokes and that had me intrigued – I will say Vanessa was pretty accurate with her description, but to me it just came off wrong. I could envision a delicious artichoke tea, but instead this one leaves me wishing for exactly that, rather than dealing with a flavor that evokes lukewarm dishwater instead. Perhaps that’s more harsh than what this tea deserves, but to be honest, I just left with an impression of severe disappointment.
