I’d never tried a “Monks Blend” tea before so I’m not sure if they all taste like this, but… I am enjoying this cup! The flavor is a rich black tea mixed with something sweet. It’s almost a candy sweetness. To me, it’s like a marshmallow, cherry and some kind of fluffy vanilla sugar. Really delicious! I will definitely have to buy a larger amount in the future. Thank you to SimplyJenW for a sample!
