I nicked a bag of this from the spa last time I was there, just to see what it was like. :) It was the only black tea they had on offer, which makes sense since you are there to relax.

It’s not too bad, really. Decently strong apricot flavor with a light hint of sweetness. I left the bag in the cup for like 30 minutes when I got sidetracked into reviewing some of the husband’s photography. Not in the least bit bitter. The only downside is as the cup cools more with the bag still in there, I’m not sure, but I think I taste the bag. Just a mild papery taste in the background which is totally my fault and not that of the tea. :)

If I was limited to bagged tea, I think RoT would be my choice for a lot of things.

Tea afficionado & founder of the Midwest Tea Festival. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
