drank Monarch Blend by Ovation Teas
358 tasting notes

I had a cup of this from the Traveling Tea Box the other day and forgot to log it, oops! Overall, I liked this tea. It had a fun fruitiness to it, with a little hint of floral in the background. Maybe not one that I would chose every day, but it was certainly nice for a summer cup first thing in the morning.

-Dry blend has large black tea leaves and twigs with large pieces of dried fruit, yellow petals, pink rose petals, and small lavender petals.
-Dry leaves smell lightly musty and of dried fruit. Tea liquor aroma is malty and of sweet fruit.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark brown color.
-Tangy fruit flavor and finish with a small amount of bitterness. Strong floral aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. A very fruity cup with floral hints of lavender and rose.

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. :)
