I was expecting a more bitter tea, as most of my experiences with orange pekoe teabags are.

I was extremely pleasantly surprised by how sweet this tea is, considering how handsomely dark the liquor gets. The aromas of light almonds mixed with even lighter floral notes are very present and very much appreciated.

The sweet and strong dark flavors are nicely balanced. The strong flavors do not overpower but give the best amount of kick with a complimenting sweetness.

I am more than satisfied purchasing this sample, as I didn’t want my impressions of orange pekoe to fall upon inferior teabags.
