This tea has such an interesting flavor and I can’t identify just what it is. It’s not exactly wine, to me, and not exactly fruit either. The sip is strong on the black tea, too. I’m definitely glad I’ve tried this one, but it’s really too strange for me. Thank you ladykittykat for a sample!

This full-bodied black tea captures the strong, malty aroma unique to the Assam region and pairs it with the richness of cabernet grapes. The sophisticated result has a dry red wine flavour with a slightly floral aroma and subtle notes of cherry. Its bold flavour means it pairs best with bittersweet chocolate and medium-hard cheeses with delicate aromas, such as Spanish Manchego, mild cheddars or the drier goat cheeses.
