Another sample from ToiToi

It’s slightly astringent. I can taste the vanilla and the black tea. The vanilla is not too powerful as it is in other blends that I’ve had. However, a third flavor, I assume its the grenadine, is a bit too masculine-flavored to me. I suppose the blend is aptly named. I’m enjoying my cup for what it is, but I won’t be buying this one.

Got a big 4oz bag of Monk Blend from Green Hill Teas.
I get a Strawberry smell and a bit of Vanilla from opening the bag.. not a lot of tea smell at all from the dry tea. I steep at near boiling for a little under 3min. Now the liquor is a nice brown/red with that same strawberry vanilla sent a bit more of the tea smell on the cup then in the bag. The taste I get the black tea flavor mixed with the fruit and vanilla.. and it is good.. get a little dryness at the end, but over all a very satisfying tea.
