This tea is heavenly! I received this as a sample in the mail. Perhaps its also because I haven’t had black tea in ages, but this one is just mMmm delicious! I love the real scent of spices in this little bag. There is nothing artificial to the smell or taste! It was a nice, mild but spicy enough beverage. The black tea base is perfect. I added some sugar and milk to it, and it was wonderful. Such a great tea for a cold day.
