Monk’s Blend is probably one of my favourite black teas of all time. I picked this one up because I had a real craving, but hadn’t had any in a couple of years.
Honestly, at first the scent in the bag put me off just a little. Something I can’t quite put my finger on, but which concerned me. Thankfully, once it was brewed my concerns were completely alleviated. This tea is absolutely delicious, and the flavours work together perfectly. I find it has a good astringency. I rarely drink this with any milk or sweetener.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Licious is a stuffy pretentious grad student, who fits in with more of those academic stereotypes than she really should. Naturally, as a pretentious academic she loves tea. She also loves animals, watching a ridiculous amount of television, photography and reading dense, heavy books about boring world issues.
