A chilly day makes me a very sad person. I would much rather have sunshine and blue skies. After a lunch with the family, I came home with the search for the perfect tea to chase my cold weather blues away. Pride of the Port just seemed to be so fitting.
The color of this tea is beautiful. It is somewhere between a cranberry and brown color. Its smell lead me to believe it was going to be a very astringent tea. It has the scent of a very strong black tea from a bag. However, it tastes so much better!
It tastes smooth and rich. I was pleasantly surprised that it was not at all bitter. I enjoy a good cup of unflavored black tea and I think this might be my favorite so far. Would go so well with a shortbread cookie.
