I saw this in my sample box today. This is also from the Tea Box Pass B! The black tea leaves look very nice. They are medium length and slightly wavy dark brown leaves. Crunchy looking! Steeped, it was a dark brown color. I love the way it smells like muscat … err grapes! It does have the nice wine flavor. This one is more like a dry wine. It isn’t overpowering or artificial tasting. It is just right. There is a moderate amount of astringency at the end of the sip, and it increases as I keep sipping. It doesn’t need any additives either. Towards the end, I decided to try this with a little bit of sugar. I felt like it took away from the flavor more than added to it. Good tea! I miss wine so much, so I am happy to have stumbled upon this tea!

I’m someone who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
