Thank you to Jaime (my secret santa!) for sending me a bit of this tea… it’s my mystery tea for today!

When I first opened this package, I couldn’t believe it wasn’t a fruit flavored tea, because it had such a strong, fruity aroma. This is something that subsides once brewed, though, as the liquor is much softer in fragrance.

Softly sweet, smooth, and robust. This is really delicious. I like it very much! It has a nice undertone of sweetness that falls somewhere between honey and caramel. It is an invigorating tea. Delicious, slightly malty, but with a pleasant, wine-like finish that is fruity and slightly dry. Nice!

Really, really, nice! It’s a light black tea with a flavor I’d call “golden.” Not smoky or bitter, just warm and slightly dark with the smallest bit of brown-sugar sweet at the end of each sip. This was a sample from one of my tea-storm-rescuers, and I am grateful!

(After years of receiving Christmas ornaments from friends and co-workers—the usual annual token gift—I finally started putting names and dates on them. I hereby resolve to do the same with swaps and samples so I can thank the appropriate people as I go.)

It “sets” well, too - had to leave the house for about an hour, warmed up the last cup that had been sitting in the pot and it’s still sweet and light. No bitterness.

Another from my tea sampler from Cuppa. It’s a light tea, not as robust as some of the blacks that I’ve had. It tastes slightly honey-like. This would make a fantastic Southern-style iced tea (unfortunately, I’m not a fan of sweet tea, but apparently make a very good pitcher when I try to). This would be a great basic black to always have on hand for guests who just want/like plain black tea.

Had enough for two cups; icing the second for Mama France to try.

ETA: This does make a great iced tea. The tea is still strong even after being diluted. Mama France is now asking what she would need to brew loose tea.
