Another sipdown. Thank you to Matcha Manic for the sample.
The black tea was ok, but nothing special. A tad too sharp for me (tannic, brisk). The cinnamon/cloves and lemon/orange zest are a traditional combo that works well together. I wouldn’t have this again, though, because I’ve seen it executed better elsewhere. The orange zest was ok, definitely gave a dried fruit vibe. I also got some dried fruit that reminded me more of dried cranberry and dried fig. It wasn’t a bad cup, but I prefer constant comment for an orange and clove black tea.
