I don’t usually like flavored black teas- I so much prefer to get my fix from flavored rooibos or honeybush… but this one smelled deliciously like raisins or even blueberries in the packet, so I was hopeful. Brewed, I definitely smelled the toast, but was a little wary because that’s pretty strange. Ok, sipping this I taste two things- the black tea, which is definitely there, and raisins- I can actually justify this on my palette as cinnamon raisin toast, which is bizarre. I’m not sure, though, if I would have come to this conclusion on the taste without the flavor suggestion on the packet. Trying to taste this without considering the name is hard, but I’m not sure I’d have liked it as much without preparing myself for something strange. With a little almond milk added I feel like the flavors even come out a bit more. I even tried a little agave nectar in this, because I have decided that a lot of flavored black teas need it… but it didn’t really change anything. I have to come down on the side of ‘this is just okay’. Thanks for hooking me up, K!

Grad student in sociocultural anthropology. I drink tea while reading for my courses, and it makes the books go down easier. I genuinely like most kinds of tea – although fruit tisanes kind of scare me.
