This is a sweet and very tasty black tea. With no sugar, there’s a faint bite of black tea bitter to balance the sweetness; with one lump, it’s more of a decadent experience. This is a very smooth tea, but it’s a little more complicated in its flavors than I usually choose first thing in the morning. It makes a great mid-morning treat.
The Tea Table calls this a “holiday” tea, but hastens to assure that it’s “delicious any time of year”, which I find amusing. This tastes very much like a mid-winter tea to me. This is also from my tea-of-the-month subscription and I don’t think it’ll last me through the month, let alone through the winter, at the rate I keep drinking it!
