I bought a sample of this tea for my husband who likes plain black teas. I stole it and took it to work so I could try it (no worries I’ll give the rest back to him). When I first tasted it, I liked it and thought, ‘this is an ok black tea’ and then the more I drank it, the more I liked it. It’s nicely malty (not overly so) and has no astringency. It has an earthiness to the scent, but not too much so. It reminds me a lot of the dragon balls from Teavana. I’m betting that my husband will like this one and will beg for tin of it (esp since he is almost out of the Mountain Malt).

This is one of the better black teas that I’ve had in a long while.

Lightly sweetened with agave nectar.
