I put off trying this tea for so long because I was afraid muscat was going to be something really gross. Needless to say, I was surprised and pleased to discover it’s just grape.
I can only smell grape in the dry leaves. The brewed tea has a more subtle grape aroma with the black tea base coming through. But the grape taste is just okay, not amazing.
I don’t usually drink black tea straight, so I added some milk and sugar after tasting it. That made this tea more enjoyable for me.
But overall, I can’t get past the weirdness of drinking a grape-flavored tea. Something tells me this isn’t normal. Maybe that’s the artificial aspect others have pointed out. I’m not sure. But I do know this isn’t a favorite for me.
