I wanted to try a black tea for the $1 tea promotion and the sales girls recommended this upon hearing how disappointed I was with the Orange Pekoe. Let me tell you THIS is what black tea should taste like!

Steeped, it turns a lovely, deep orange colour with a robust flavour to match! Deep and sweet, with hints of honey and malt, this tea is lovely, lovely, lovely. Have I mentioned that it’s lovely? No need for milk or sugar, although I am sure this tea would stand up to them just fine, but I’m having it straight. Mmmm, Orange Pekoe could learn a thing or two from this tea…

Oh, and I totally left the bag in waaaay longer than it was supposed to be, but no bitterness. Nothing. Nada. Just smooth, dreamy tea.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
