Wine flavored tea! How cool is that? So in some ways I don’t taste chardonnay – there are some spices going on here that are different from a typical chardonnay. That being said, this tea is absolutely delicious. It is rich, complex and sophisticated. You swish it around and taste something different with every sip. So I guess in a way, it is a lot like wine. I do taste tart grapes, along with delicious papaya. This tea is has a nice density and beautiful light color. I would recommend this one because it is so different and is very much an experience. Although, this doesn’t come across as Chardonnay, I rate it high because it is so enjoyable. Thanks Azzrian, you’ve opened my mind to a new tea once again.
