I enjoy this tea…this is one of my go-to teas for the morning.
Aroma: Typical Assam style. Malty, somewhat astringent, a little “thick” and “heady”…but not as much so as Lipton’s Brisk [regular black].
Taste: Same as aroma…unlike Lipton’s, this is a little smoother with a slight hint of sweetness.
Aftertaste: Thick, a little mouth feel with a delightful smoothness.
I must say, I LOVE everything about this company’s products. Their teas always seem to taste so fresh, everyone I have [including samples received] have not disappointed me yet! No matter how long I keep the sachet in the water, Zhena’s gypsy teas do not get overpowering, at least, not to me. Zhena’s gypsy tea packaging is cool too.
