I received this tea in last years Secret Pumpkin 2014 exchange. Thank you!

So, by the name I was really excited about this tea. The Taiwanese black teas that I have had have always been sweet and filled with a nice spiciness. I thought with a name like honey black, that this would be the same, but I am not finding this tea that naturally sweet. Like others have mentioned I get a lot of vegetable notes and i seems more similar in profile to nilgiri or Ceylon type of tea. Not my favorite cup, but not a bad cup either.

I started drinking tea while on a 4 month long cycling trip through South America. It seemed to always be a great way to warm up when I was cold and it was always available everywhere. Mate was the big tea of choice down there and it was also a great way to get to know people. When I returned home, my sister introduced me to Teavana and this launched me into the realm of loose leaf tea.
