If this is a classic malty black tea then I do not care for them. It’s not horrible, it does mellow and sweeten as it cools and has intetesting rye notes, but I shall save the rest of the leaves to make sweet tea for the husband. Main reason I drank this is because I’m going to try a Kenyan white from the same estate and because it was in the house as part of the gift set I ordered on sale for the copper tins. Again probably unfair to rate, so moving on.

Edit 8/16/12: Made this iced for the toddler this morning because the husband brought a jug of Gold Peak into the house which is now empty and Rowan wanted me to fill it. Me thinks this would be much better cold brewed and that is how I shall use up the remainder of the leaves, but you know impatient toddler so hot to cold which of course results in more bitterness. I actually took a sip of this before I iced it and was shocked at how much it tasted like apple cider, I did a tsp of sugar for the pitcher. Not so much cider in the iced version, though it reminds me a bit of Ceylon. Still not rating, leaves are prob old anyway since it was on sale an whatnot. The White Tinderet from Upton was a amazing btw.

A delightful black tea. Only needs about 2- 3 minutes of steeping and if you go over by a few minutes it doesn’t get too bitter like other plain black teas.

I picked mine up on sale during one of Teavana’s sales however I did not see it on their website anymore.
