This tea was wonderful. We enjoyed this one on a cold evening next to the fire, and it really went well with the moment. It has a very “Autumnal” taste to it. It’s the little bit of spice combined with the fruit flavors that really reminds me of fall. It truly is “A Black Celebration” as the label says. There may be a lot of “monk’s blends” available out there from various companies, but there’s only one “The Monk”.
