Thanks for a sample of this one, Ost! I was hoping this tea would be like this. :D It’s the silky black snails with hints of gold! The flavor is very sweet with a medium body, hints of honey, molasses, malt and tomato soup. Some black teas also have a quality that I can only describe as like a fruit juiciness. I’m also beginning to see that Simple Loose Leaf definitely has the same supplier as another famous tea shop, but I don’t mind, as I usually love their teas. This tea is also like the new Phoenix Pearls from Zen. A solid black tea here.
