Not one of my favorites so far from the variety of English Garden teas I’ve been sampling. The telltale muscatel is there, but there’s a strange redolence of “burned” in the flavor. Not like Lapsang Souchong smokiness, which I really like, but like something went wrong in the processing of this tea. I might have to try this one again this week to see if perhaps it was just a bad bag.

Bio

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
