A great brown color. As with the previous reviewer, I feel that it matches the swab on the site perfectly. This is a great alternative to a harsh black when journaling. It looks especially good on off-white paper.

Writes smoothly and nice brown. Might differ from screen to screen, but the color chart was pretty accurate for me.

I love this ink. I think it is a tad lighter than the sample pictured, and I would even say there is a slight gold tinge to it. It glides nicely and dries quickly. Lovely ink.

Lovely, quality ink. The colour is a nice sepia and perfect for documents you want to have a historic look. Gorgeous on ivory or cream paper!

I love brown ink but they are not all created equal. I chose to purchase a bottle of Lie De The based on the review on petulant.com. I loved the shading and some yellow coming through. A lot of the brown inks out there have reddish undertones, which I don't mind. This one was just different enough. I inked it up in my new Pilot Metropolitan (m) and it is perfect! This color will be a permanent color in my every day use. It's perfect for letters, journaling and even conservative enough for work. I'm so glad I purchased a bottle!

Never was a fan of brown inks in the past, but this ink changed my mind. A well behaved ink that cleans up easily.

Looking for a change or something different... check this one out.

I love the color and the shading qualities of this ink. It's one that I never intend to run out of. J.Herbin inks are amongst my favorites.

H. B. Herbin "Lie de Thé" is more caramel tone than brown tone. Apart of this, that's no means this ink not good. Absolutely not. This ink keeps the great qualities of the H. B Herbin. Nice performance over any type of paper. For my journal it will be the only one.

Being a tea lover, I had to give this a whirl. Sadly it ended up being rather washed-out and not quite what I was expecting color-wise. More of a yellow/green-brown rather than a richer gold-brown like I was hoping. Worth a try, but not my favorite.

Not thrilled. Looks rather poop-coloured. Other j. Herbin inks are gorgeous, so this was a disappointment.
