I’m not real sure how to describe this tea…but I like it just fine. It’s strong without being bitter but it’s not a stereotypical black tea taste it’s more of a masculine woodsy, earthy type taste. It has a bit of a woodsy aftertaste too but nothing I can’t deal with.
This is a blend of superior India teas with added exotic leaves to harmonize the body and flavor of the brew. It’s a no-nonsense, strong tea that has an astringency, or puckering effect, you feel both on the tip of your tongue and in your mouth. Demitasse Tea, served straight, with lemon peel or a teaspoon of milk and sugar, makes a satisfying conclusion to a meal.
