I’ll start out by saying I’m not generally a black tea drinker; its fine, but I prefer whites or oolongs. This, however, is one black I’ll happily continue to drink. It was a gift, and I would consider reordering once I run out…that’s saying a lot since I don’t usually drink black :) If you’re a black tea fan, this should be a hit. Its not super strong…not a breakfast tea, but a lunch tea I think. Try it!
