O.M.G. This smells AWESOME!!!!!!
50 points just for that! :)
If you are a Cabernet fan I don’t think there would be any guessing that this is EXACTLY what this tea smells like prior to infusion! Grapey-Cabernet sweetness – beautiful!

The infused tea you can smell more of the black tea AND the Cabernet smell with undertones of cinnamon…but not a fireball cinnamon…more like an Indian Spice type like in a traditional Indian Dish or chai. I’m thinking the licorice tones down the fruitiness of the Cabernet a little bit…but not a lot.

This ‘brews up’ VERY dark brown.

The taste is MUCH different that I expected based on the outstanding aroma. The black tea – Assam – pulls thru and is flavorful BUT bold and the Cabernet taste seems to be just as bold.

As it cools a bit the taste is becoming more astringent but in a good way…a way like some Cabernet can be.

Ahhh…CHEERS to Friday, eh!?
AWESOME.
