I generally prefer lighter less astringent teas, but this one is interesting enough and complex enough that I’m definitely glad I tried it.

Reading the reviews from my fellow Steepster members teabird, Lee, and Jace Lion Repshire really added to my enjoyment of this tea.

In addition to the wonderful honey flavors that are abundant and obvious in this gorgeous red tea, I also enjoyed the complex dried apricot, malt, tamarind, and dark wheat bread flavors.

BrewTEAlly Sweet’s description of the cinnamon flavors helped to identify those bitter flavors that other reviews did not detect, as well as the mint tea mouthfeel.

I probably won’t seek this tea out again, but I certainly am happy to have experienced it.

Bio

I’ve been a lover of tea for as long as I can remember. A hot cup of Bigelow Constant Comment will bring back a flood of memories of working at a summer camp outside Yosemite when I was 18. When I’m sick with a cold there’s nothing that helps more than Celestial Seasoning’s Lemon Zinger with a heaping spoonful of honey.

Now that I’m older I’ve learned to appreciate delicate and complex oolong and green teas. Right now I’m discovering I really like teas from Thailand. (Going beyond Thai Iced Tea, which I’ve always loved).
