5 tasting notes

This is hands-down my favorite black tea. It is so incredibly smooth and doesn’t taste like any other black tea I’ve tried. Oddly enough, it reminds me completely of a Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab scent called Iago, which contains black musk, wet leather, and vetiver. If you could combine those into a tea, this would be it. (I hope that sounds as appealing to other people as it does to me).

I would like to try a version of this that doesn’t come from Teavana, however, as it was incredibly over-priced. I’m sure I can find something even more high quality for the same price or less somewhere else.

Profile

Bio

An odd person who loves tea and music. Her ultimate life would be spent doing nothing but drinking tea and going to concerts.

NOTE: Most of the teas I have listed in the cupboard were not actually bought from the companies in the description. I buy almost all my teas from local retailers, and it would be a pain to create new pages for each one. I find the closest match based on description and the photo provided. I usually say where I bought the tea in my review.
