This morning, I was looking for simplicity since it’s Monday and that usually means errands. So I reached for a teabag, and this is the tea that I grabbed.
As a tea purveyor, I have had a lot of tasting experience with Metropolitan Teas. They were one of the first big wholesale companies I encountered when I first started out. Some of their teas are very good, others, mediocre. I guess it could be argued that it is that way with all tea companies, though, since every tea tastes different to every individual palate, and what is good for me may not be good to you.
Anyways, I received this tea in a swap a while ago. I had tried their ice wine tea years ago, but not one that I wanted to sell since I wasn’t interested in teas flavored by other companies.
It is a good tea. I like the wine-like quality of it, it seems to capture the taste of sweet wine well. It has a nice, fruity flavor to it. The Ceylon black tea base is mild, although that is not uncommon for Ceylon tea.
Even though it tastes good, I find myself missing my usual “breakfast blend” this morning, so I have chosen not to rate this one with a numeric rating today. I don’t think it would be fair.
