This is a pretty interesting blend. The dry leaves smell a lot like grape flavoring, but not in a cough syrupy kind of way. I didn’t really detect the vinegar notes that other reviewers have mentioned. To me, the taste is somewhere grape juice and wine. The grape flavor is really bold, but there’s a very slight acidity that reminds me more of wine.

ETA: I re-steeped this for 3 minutes, but then got called into an unexpected meeting. I enjoyed this at room temperature after I got back. The wine flavor is definitely stronger after it cooled off.

Big thanks to KittyLovesTea for the sample!

I’m a Floridian living in Kansas and currently pursuing a physics Ph.D. by day (…and by night, who am I kidding?) with an immense love for all things tea.

Rating Scheme:

<50 = Undrinkable.
50-59 = Drinkable, but not my cuppa.
60-69 = Decent, but nothing to write home about.
70-79 = Good tea that I drink occasionally. Probably will not restock when it runs out.
80-89 = Very tasty. May or may not restock when it runs out.
90-100 = Delicious. A staple in my collection.
