Taster’s Review:

This tea has really surprised me.  I really like it a lot.

When I first brewed this tea; I didn’t know what to expect.  But I certainly wasn’t expected to be as impressed with it as I am.

It has a fairly mellow flavor – and yet there is a very pleasing underlying note of spice to it that is a little peppery and vaguely reminiscent of toasted cumin.  It isn’t exactly what I’d call spicy yet it has these little hints of flavor that entice and excite the palate.

This is a very impressive black tea!  I drank it hot, although it has a such refreshingly different, bright flavor that would also be very good iced – perhaps with a thin slice of lemon?  I added just a drizzle of agave nectar to my cup which highlighted some of the unique notes of this tea very nicely, but it is quite good without sweetener.

However you choose to serve this tea – it is sure to be a winner!  I highly recommend it!
