Thank you SimplyJenW for swapping with me…

The dry tea has an almost syrup-like scent to it. It’s sweet, yet the black tea scent is grounding. 205/1.5 min.

Now I can smell the blackberries. The taste is really nice. The flavors meld together and taste like a blackberry custard tea. It’s definitely a black tea, mildly astringent, but with a richness that combines so well with the fruitiness of the tea. The vanilla is present, but fortunately it’s not the super sweet faux vanilla that haunts many a blend. Instead, it seems almost creamy in this one. (In taste, not in mouthfeel.) It’s really nice and makes a terrific wake up tea.

Thanks, SimplyJenW, for a delightful swap!

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
