This may well be my favourite tea. Nice and strong, and a little bit sweet on its own accord. I could drink this tea anytime, anyplace. And I’m really fickle, so that’s saying something.

I was at the David’s Tea the just opened up near my house and was doing my usual I-need-to-buy-a-ton-of-new-teas-right-now kinda thing when I remembered that my black tea supplies were running low (for me) and I spent about 45 minutes figuring out which teas I wanted. I finally chose this one due to it’s strong, bold scent. I usually find that black teas aren’t bold and smooth enough but this one was perfection! Even standing up to my cream and brown sugar additions! I sometimes cut it with Earl Grey or English Breakfast and that’s just as delicious.
