I really enjoyed this tea. The aroma is comforting and makes me smile whenever I go to take a sip. The flavor isn’t overwhelming with chestnut, so it tastes more like a mildly flavored black tea with a hint of caramel. I would think for most people’s taste it could use just a touch of sugar to match the flavor with the smell. Very enjoyable – I think I shall order myself some!

Sadly I think I’ve just encountered the first Zingerman’s product that I didn’t absolutely love. To be fair, I don’t have the right equipment for this tea — you have to use so much of the tea for each 8oz of water that I literally don’t have an infuser big enough to prepare as directed. Thus, unsurprisingly, the tea is watery and doesn’t taste like anything. Too bad, because I generally enjoy Zingerman’s products and am sure this would be good, but I’m not going to buy new equipment just for this!

drank Earl Grey Black by Teavana

This earl grey doesn’t make me want to jump up and down with excitement, but it’s classic and smooth — and my go to for just having a bit of black tea in the morning or afternoon. I could drink bucketsful, which means I’m not savoring every sip, but just enjoying the overall flavor.

The first time I had this I thought it was ah… so, so. Which was a disappointment because cranberries are one of my favorite things, ever. But every additional time I’ve made this tea, I’ve liked it better. I suspect the tin will be gone by next Christmas, so I hope they keep up the tradition and make it again so I can restock. The aroma is fantastic – I get cranberries, warmth and just a hint of honey. The taste is a bit weak for me, I generally prefer a strong, black tea, but I like it enough to crave it in the evenings.
