I’ve seen a lot of either hate or love for this tea and I can understand why, I’m defiantly closer to the “love” side. While I haven’t experienced as many black teas as I would like to claim, this is defiantly a very pleasant tea and when I used to work at Teavana it was my default black tea next to the black dragon pearls. Like the name suggests, it kind of has a copper like taste that is hard for me to describe, one might even call it “smokey” which is also accurate. I also like how the maltiness is at the perfect level for my tastes, it may be too much for others but when I’m in the mood for this tea its quite rewarding. Not the best black tea out there I’m sure, but for a store that sells their teas for ridiculously high prices this tea is priced quite well at $9 per 2oz.
