Yum! A nice and non-bitter black tea blend! :) Tastes like most other black teas that I enjoy. I have a ton of it too since I got this off Amazon.

I love all things African. Even though I’m not a black tea person, African Breakfast sounds interesting- I’ve never heard of it before. I know they drink Chai in Africa (especially northern).

I also love all things African! I go to Tanzania each year, and almost everyone drinks black tea. They make delicious chai and ginger black tea. What kind of teas do you like?

The list of teas I don’t like is shorter lol. I don’t care for most unflavored black teas, most flavored blacks except dessert teas and chais, shu pu erh, toasty/roasty oolongs, gen mai chai, and hojicha.

I actually like this one better this time around. My boyfriend made it for me and added some agave. It had the smokey, savory ham smell to it, but it didn’t taste like ham to me. Very good! It tastes better with the agave for sure. I’m bumping up the rating a little!

I’ve been having this every morning. It is a nice blend without being overly caffeinated. There seems to be more rooibos than black tea leaves. :)

Ham. Bacon. Pork. Those were the first things I thought when I smelled and tasted this.

Savory and smokey. The calendula flowers are large and whole. I was very surprised. Pretty and yellow. There were blue cornflowers in there as well. A colorful, natural tea. I think I have to get used to this tea though. I am not used to drinking savory, smokey teas. Especially not ones that smell like ham to me. Wow. Interesting flavor. I have a large tin of this. I hope I eventually fall in love with this.

I have more to add, but initial impressions:

Smells like cardboard but tastes a lot better than that! By far there are more rooibos than black tea leaves in there. I think thats why I smell the cardboard. Plain rooibos smells like cardboard to me. I added a cube of brown sugar and enjoyed this! Not something I’d reach for often though.
