Okay well, been a while, right? But I had a cup of this once I woke up. It’s not my first taste of it. I’ve been sipping this tea whilst doing the morning paper’s cryptograms for about a week now. So I’ve had time to think.
The liquor is a dirty rust color. It has a dry sour taste, plenty of a polyphenols cranking up the astringency. And don’t say I steeped it too long, I did not. I’ve tried plenty of different times. The aroma is tanned leather, sprinkled with cinnamon.
I’m not a fan of black tea. I don’t like weak tea. I do not care for weak black tea. But this is acceptable. I rate this with Irish Breakfast, although I like it almost a tad bit better.
