From the Samurai TTB.
I don’t know anything about the ruby varietals that tea-sipper refers to, so I can’t speak to that. I did a quick Google search to find out a bit more, and honestly now I feel like too much of a novice to be drinking this tea. I’m not tasting any of the notes that are described – wintergreen, chocolate, licorice, camphor, ginger, clove, sarsaparilla, etc. I’m sure the list goes on. To me, this is just a good black tea. There, I said it. I do not have a refined palate! But I did enjoy it. In fact, this is another tea I enjoyed more and more as it cooled. It was just tasty. Sorry I could not do this one justice, SkySamurai!
