This morning, I took the simple approach and reached for a black tea in a tea bag as I have an early morning (well, early for me, anyways) appointment. This is my very last of this tea that I received in a swap.
This is not my favorite Metropolitan Tea, and as a tea purveyor I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to taste quite a bit from them. But I do like this tea, don’t get me wrong. I’m just not a big fan of grape flavor, which seems to also apply to wine-flavored teas such as this one. Not that I dislike it, let’s just say that I generally pass up the grape flavored skittles in favor of the other flavors.
Anyways… this is a good tea, and a very intriguing flavor. It does have a wine-like quality to it which always seems to cause me to do a double take. You’d think by now I’d get used to it, as I’ve tried quite a few “wine” infused teas, but, that fermented taste is always just a little surprising – in a good way – to me.
It is a weird tea to drink in the morning though, it’s much better suited for meal-time or in the afternoon, in my opinion. However, this was the first black tea I grabbed, so I went with it. A pleasant tea experience, overall.
