So. Good. I don’t drink black tea too often because I usually really don’t want any caffeine, but this morning I had a paper to write. Soooo…I brewed up a cup of this. It smells AMAZING, like caramely mapley almondy goodness, and it has a very refreshing black tea taste with end-notes of round sweetness. It’s great for sipping while working on a paper! I re-steeped this two more times, the second time with some Honeybush Vanilla and the third time with the same contents. It holds up well to a second steeping—maybe not so well to a third, but the honeybush carried it through, and I wasn’t expecting it to last more than one time anyway. Delicious and doesn’t need milk or sugar to make it so—which is perfect for me! I’ll be sorry to see the 4oz I have dwindle away.
I had a Chem test this morning, so I steeped some of this up with some leftover Azteca Fire leaves, and man, this tea is delicious. Sweet, almondy, strong, and not even a whisper of bitterness. The Azteca Fire rounds it out and gives it a chocolatey note. Was equally good as a second steeping. I’m so glad I stocked up on this before it got discontinued.
