Another Bold Brew from Shanti! NICE! Dry…this had a burly black tea aroma to it with an underlying hint of sweet. Once infused this was VERY DARK in color and pretty strong in black tea flavor/taste. There is a HARDCORE Black Tea Taste paired with something that wants to be chewy but doesn’t quite get to that point. The taste starts off with a smidge of bitterness – but in a good way – and trails off into a more even taste as the sip progresses. The aftertaste is much more smooth than I anticipated based on the beginning of the sip. I really like it tho! A great morning tea! Nice-Bold-Black Tea!
