I picked up a tin of this at TJ Maxx a while ago. I have had a few cups of it and love the strong flavor and the burst of energy it gives me. I have a ton on my to-do list today, so I’m starting the afternoon with a cup of this tea to get me going. The tea is a dark reddish brown color and smells deliciously malty and sweet. I seriously could swoon just smelling it. The flavor is very robust and just a little bitter. There is a nice, full, malty aftertaste. This tea takes milk and sweetener well, and becomes a smooth and bold cup. If it were just a little less bitter it would be almost perfect.
