I’ve been wanting to try this tea for awhile. I remember someone raving about Monk’s Blend in one of their reviews, and I’ve been curious ever since. This is pretty good, very sweet and a little artificial tasting, but not too much. It has a syrupy sweet aroma and flavor. The vanilla is a nice touch to the grenadine’s sweetness, and it gives it a creamy texture. I like this one, but I’m not sure if I will purchase more after I get through this ounce. Maybe I’ll have to try another company’s blend to see if it tastes any different.

-Dry blend has large black tea leaves and twigs with large yellow petals.
-Dry leaves smell fruity and syrupy sweet. Tea liquor aroma is of vanilla and sweet fruit.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark orange brown color.
-Malty and fruity flavor with a sweet fruity finish. Light creamy grenadine aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. A syrupy sweet cup with a fruity hint and a vanilla creaminess.

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. :)
