Of the three in the Wine Collection this is my favourite…

But that’s not saying much considering that it’s still not that great. Just better than the other two. A agree with Eisenherz, the smell is lovely both dry and brewed, but once you take a sip it falls rather flat. To me it comes off as rather soapy and slightly bitter, which is unfortunate because from the smell it had potential. I’m not sure where they went wrong… it’s quite bland for a black tea, with nothing to really give it oomph. So sad, not what I was expecting at all.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 15 sec

After seeing your experiences with this collection, I have stopped cursing DT for not putting this up on the wall. Maybe its better that way…

Eisenherz

I still need to try the other 2, but seeing you liked this one best, I sure am in no hurry now! Glad to see you didn’t hate it as much as I did, though!

Faith

Kay: They are all awful and not even worth it. The saddest thing is they all taste like recycled flavours… with better versions already out there.

Eisenherz: I did hate it, just can never bring myself to rate anything under 50 unless I truly could not drink it. Maybe I’m too soft on them…

Bio

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…
