I believe Samovar does a take on this tea where they soak it in honey over night. Absolutely delicious. As a black tea lover, this is a great oolong to add!

The hint of coconut is really lovely.
A uniquely spicy tea that steeps for about 15 minutes.
The amount of “tarry” flavor in this is incredibly over-powering. This is the first tea I’ve had where I debated not finishing it. Milk and sugar can’t help it.
Would you say that it’s really a bad tea or just not for your palette?
I was really overwhelmed by the smell and tarryness of the tea myself at first. But I stuck with it and it definitely grew on me, give it another shot. Not for everyone, has a unique taste that works for me once in while.
One of my favorite teas from Samovar. Brews in 5-10 seconds!
Edit: Samovar no longer lists this tea on their menu. Sadface.
I bought the organic loose leaf Earl Grey from Samovar – the best smelling and strong tasting Earl Grey I’ve had. Samovar will also give you a discount on your tea if you return with the same container to buy more.
