This is truly an amazingly well done black tea blend. The smell is incredibly good, fruity with such a strong hint of chocolate. Brewed, the flavors dim a bit into a well-rounded black tea. Generally only drink PG Tips with milk, never a nice loose-leaf, but this is a tea I actually do enjoy with a dash of milk. I like a strong brew. Over all, it’s a great tea and I’m so glad I discovered it!
