This tea has a red grape peel acidity & tartness to it, followed by a lingering cacao after taste. I’ve never had a cabernet, so I can’t say if it tastes like one. It’s not a tea that appeals to me.

“This tea is just… amazing. The flavor is full bodied cacao and grape, like the name suggests. I wish it wasn’t a limited edition, because I want this to be a staple in my cupboard!” Read full tasting note
