Oh my, I am in love! The woman at DT said that this reminded her of coffee, which I do miss but my stomach can no longer handle. But, the coffee comment had me wondering. Will it be acidic? Will it be tea pretending to be coffee and therefore fake?

But, it was not at all. It sure looks like coffee when it is brewing. But, other than that, it is pure tea. The taste is strong and lovely, but it has very little after-taste (well, as long as you steep it not too long). I think the coffee comment was about the full-bodied aspect of it – it does not taste watery at all. The tea goes down extremely smoothly. It is perfect for the morning, or for one of those long rainy days when energy seems to be fleeting.

The best part about it, is that my husband, who does not understand the big deal about the teas, does not understand why I have a drawer of 20 different kinds, and looks at me with a somewhat glazed, patient expression when I talk about them, LOVES this tea! Score one point for the tea lovers!!!!

I have yet to get into all of DavidsTea’s straight teas. I feel like this one would maybe be a good starting point? Did you drink it plain (i.e. w/o milk or sugar)?

Indestructible

I had it with milk and sugar, as I do all black teas. Apparently they do drink it that way in Kenya. Good luck!
