I’ve had this tea twice now…first in a large 4 cup pot and the second time in an single cup brew. Its “OK”. Its actually rather dull. You can see the spices in the mix, but about the only thing coming through is a hint of orange peel. The clove and cinnamon are just “ehh”. I’m not much impressed by the black tea either…it doesn’t have any character…in fact that’s the issue all around; the tea lacks character.
It will serve its purpose, something warm to drink on a cold winter day, but I’ll not be excited about it…and I won’t be rationing it out to make it last.

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
