4 Tasting Notes
This is a very flavorful black tea. The smell and flavor are very tropical in nature with hints of pineapple, coconut and citrus peel. Add a bit of ginger spice to the mix and you got yourself one of the best black teas that I have tried so far. I definitely recommend this tea as well as Teavana to everyone.
I am a fan of black teas (mostly because they are a wonderful morning replacement for coffee) but I was surprised when I tried this at work recently. For a black tea the aroma and taste are very sweet. I didn’t think the leaves were too small, in fact they are on par with any other Argo tea as far as leaf size goes.
This is a loose leaf tea you can buy from Argo. It is a very strong black tea with a nice honey aroma too it. There are hints of lemon which I only noticed after the steeping process. It is a great tea to have in the morning as a coffee replacement, especially if you are nursing a cold.
On tip is to make sure you do not let this tea steep for too long or it will start to get bitter very quickly. Anything more than 4 min on boiling is being adventurous. After trial and error I personally prefer about 3.5 min.
