I’ve been wanting to try this tea since it was released. When TRoT sent an email with an unavoidable Black Friday deal I was so excited to finally purchase it! The tin is so pretty and the dry tea smells just heavenly! I made a huge cup of it tonight to enjoy while watching some Christmas specials on tv. Ohhhh it is so very delicious. The flavor is very light and delicate, but absolutely perfect! Tis the season to celebrate!

-Dry blend has golden raisins, yellow and blue petals and large dried blossoms. Wet leaves reveal full-sized flowers.
-Dry leaves smell sweetly of grape juice. Tea liquor aroma is of musky grapes.
-Tea liquor is a golden yellow color.
-Initial flavor is of grapes. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Lingering wine-like finish.
-Best with a small amount of sweetener.
-Very good tea. Delicate for a black tea. Light taste of champagne. Too much sweetener overwhelms soft flavors. Very festive!

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
