As black blends go, this is really good. It’s rich and full bodied, malty and slightly smoky, with the tiniest edge of astringency. I’m not 100% sure which teas have gone into this blend, but they certainly work really well together! I had a big cup of this last night after an enjoyable but tiring day at work, and it was absolutely just the thing.
Angrboda was kind enough to share a sample of this with me, so it’s her I have to thank for this experience. This is the most I’ve enjoyed a black blend in a long time, and it’s made me interested to try some of the other plain black teas I’ve got hidden away in my stash. There again, I doubt any of them will be quite as good as this…but you never know!
A really enjoyable tea. I’d go so far as to say that if you’re any kind of black tea fan, you really need to give this one ago if you’ve not already. It’s awesome.
