Altho this had a nice strong spice smell – if that’s what you are into – it terrified me! Many of you know that there have been many teas with spices in them that I seem to have ‘issues’ with. The smell alone made me assume this one would be one of those teas for me…but I’m game…bring it on!
After infusion I noticed the liquid was a light to light-medium brown in color…a fairly rare shade for a black tea in my opinion, this shade, I mean! This confused me…maybe it won’t be as spicy as I thought it would be!?
It wasn’t!!!! My nervousness went down at least 5 levels! This is a pretty darned good flavored black tea! Spices and all! This spices are NOT the center of attention…they don’t have to be in the front of the line…they don’t need all of the attention, AND the world does NOT revolve around the spice! Thank the tea gods! The Spice is quite nice! It made friends with the black tea and live in harmony! Wooooooot!!!!
