I didn’t like this tea, astringent and thin for a black.

The orange flavor predominates over the cranberry. Yet the rooibos stands out over both added flavors. Nice, enjoyable cup to unwind with.

I have ordered this and will update after tasting. Wanted to share some info about the museum that accepted this tea blend as mentioned above.

National Tea Museum, Hangzhou, is located in the Zhejiang Province and opened in 1991. It is a very large museum, showcasing some of the aspects of history of tea in China, in fact, it has an area of around 5.4 acres, but the construction area is around 0.9 acres. This museum is a first, that is this museum is about the only museum in China with tea as its theme. The most interesting part of this museum is that, there are no external walls, but the enclosed vegetation gives the impression that tea and vegetation here is interdependent. Be sure to observe closely the one hundred distinctive characters (Chinese) which are related to tea.

National Tea Museum, Hangzhou, has four parts, that is four distinctive group of buildings that are pure treasures as far as the history of tea drinking is concerned. Explore Hall of Tea History, Kaleidoscope Hall, Hall of Tea Properties, Tea Friendship Hall, Tea Sets Hall and Tea Customs Hall. Each hall has its own history to narrate, you will be mesmerized to find the different impacts of tea on the lives of the Chinese people. Be prepared to be surprised! The Kaleidoscope Hall features more than three hundred kinds of tea including the six basic tea types of China. The admission to the museum is free and you can easily arrange for cabs to take you there.

Brews a dark green liquor with nice aroma. Flavor with half a pack of Truvia and you have a very pleasant sip n’ cup of fine flavored tisane. Yum This came as a single free teabag with my online order. Never woulda’ bought this before and surprized by how much I like it.

I don’t drink my black teas with milk. So I’m probably not giving this one it’s best shot. I found it harsh but drinkable with ample sweetener.

drank Pure Green Tea by Twinings

Ho-hum. Grassy and quite thin. A positive is no asparagus flavor, lol. Don’t care at all for vegetal tasting tea. OK I guess. Having a hard time finding enthusiasm for green teas so far. Gonna try some Harney & Sons green in the future to see if I like that better.

Very good straight rooibos. No wood taste just smooth earthy vanilla note.

This is the reason why I long thought that I didn’t like hot tea. OK sweetened and ice cold on ice cubes. But hot? Blech…
