Wow no tasting notes on this one yet? Crazy. So this is a pretty basic straight tea.
Very refreshing, a clear amber cup that is very transparent.
The flavor is that of a basic black – it is not pretentious or complex and some times we want nothing more than just a nice clear clean refreshing black! This tea is what I would use for a basic black iced tea when family comes over, with holiday meals, etc.
HOWEVER, it is also a great tea, NO astringency, NO bitterness, and no nasty after taste, so even the more discerning tea drinker would appreciate it when visiting.
I also like this tea on those mornings I am not sure what I want and just NEED my caffeine NOW!
There is a light sweet finish as the description says but not artificial or cloying at all. Just a finish that has this juicy burst similar to berry flavor.
Excuse me now, I need to go do a second steep.
Oh also I wanted to mention – my mother and uncle are black tea HOUNDS – they come to my house and want iced tea all the time. They sometimes LITERALLY stop by JUST for a cup of tea and then leave. LOL
This is the perfect tea for them!
Yes sometimes they do enjoy something different and they never complain yet this – this is their type of tea for sure! I need to stock up! :)
