Dang this is an old tea! I think I got this tea from the very first Midwest Tea fest at Single Origin’s booth. Very surprised that this tea has lasted that long! I remember really enjoying the muscatel lightness from this tea, and the rich smoothness. I also remember this tea giving me a similar energy boost to a Darjeeling – like riding a crotch rocket to space XD
Drinking it for breakfast this morning, it still retained a bit of the Darjeeling-esque muscatel headiness with a bit of overripe fruit added to the golden malty warmth. The multicolor leaves have faded a bit, the verdant greens a little faded into amber browns. It’s still the rocket fuel I remember. Sure, the ‘freshness’ of this tea is a thing in the past, but I still get a delicious refreshing cup. May add the rest of this to my iced tea pile.

Flavors: Malty, Muscatel, Stewed Fruits
