This dry tea smells wonderfully of sweet plum, and the tea’s aroma is rich and earthy. The first sip is of a nice, tart plum. Then out of nowhere comes this nasty artificial aftertaste, yuck! There’s very little oolong noticeable, the flavor is mainly of plum. Everything leading up is wonderful, but I can’t get over that aftertaste. I actually didn’t even finish the cup. Sad!

-Dry blend has large black tea leaves with pieces of dried fruit.
-Dry leaves smell lightly of sweet plum. Tea liquor aroma is of rich and earthy plum.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium reddish purple color.
-Tart plum flavor and finish. Strong artificial aftertaste.
-Best with sweetener.
-Poor tea. Tart plum flavor with an unfortunately strong artificial aftertaste.

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
