I don’t normally drink black tea except occasionally when I have it with milk, and it’s always bagged tea. After drinking this sample, I was really impressed as it tasted and smelled a lot better than the bagged ones I’ve tried before. There was no bitterness or astringency, and the dry tea leaves had a really floral, musky aroma that was reminiscent of raisins. At 2 oz for 8 bucks it’s a really good deal for a tea of this quality. What’s nice is that they source directly from the farmer as well.
