Woo this is some smooth tea! There’s some kind of dark fruit drone I, once again, can’t quite pin down. I’m seeing the word “raisin” in the item descrip and that’s not quite right. It’s almost molasses or something, or some kind of berry-flavored syrup. NO astringency whatsoever.

I can see why people like this tea; to be honest, it’s a little too heavy/rich for me. Worth a try, at least, considering all I’ve heard about it.

Thanks to Nicole for the sample!

EDIT: I’m drinking cup 2, and now that it’s cooled down I’m getting the maltiness that I didn’t get in cup 1. It’s quite pleasant. Oddly, it makes me think of fall, too. It’s September. I’m OK with it being fall now…

Bio

The name’s Holly, and I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is my happy place – it picks me up, it calms me down, it helps me focus, it helps me loosen my grip, it’s a little bit of positivity in each day. I do not drink alcohol, so tea is my recreational beverage. I love learning everything there is to know about it and sharing my experiences.

When I’m not drinking or writing about tea, I’m working at a music store and pursuing a Master’s degree in professional writing. You may also find me reading, writing, trying to learn French, cycling on the weekends, being a klutz, or making horrible puns and Star Trek references. Likely all at the same time.
