16 Tasting Notes
A mellow, yet very flavorful tea. When I got my shipment in from Amazon, there were close to a dozen assorted free samples in the box, and I tried a few of those first. I wasn’t that impressed with the ones I tried, except for the afternoon tea, so I was a little bit afraid of what this tea was going to taste like. But my fears were unfounded, because this is a delightful afternoon type tea and will take its place there on my daily schedule.
I think I’ve come to the realization that I’m not a big fan of Honeybush. It has a very astringent quality to me and I couldn’t taste any notes of Vanilla in this tea. To finish the box, I’ve been mixing it with a Rooibus chai tea to get rid of the remaining tea bags.
One cup of this in the morning and I’m definitely ready to face the day. Extremely bold, this is not for the faint of heart when it comes to an English Breakfast tea. Brews to a beautiful reddish brown color with a malty aroma and taste. I look forward to my morning cup every day, it hasn’t disappointed me yet.
