Er…so this was supposed to smell and taste like wine? …Okay then. While it steeped it smelled more like cinnamon syrup and the flavour comes across mostly as cinnamon-flavoured black tea. There’s a sweet, slightly grapey undertone that comes out more as the tea cools, but I was expecting something a bit more wine-like to be honest.
Fortify your spirit
A vigorous blend inspired by Sicily’s famous fortified wine. Made with Indian black tea, our version captures the musty scent and sweetness that marsala aficionados love. It’s smoky and spicy, mingling the aroma of grapes with strong cinnamon notes for a peppery kick. Try pairing it with olives, walnuts, Roquefort or a soft goat cheese – or take it in a sweeter direction with a rich, chocolaty dessert.
