Go out into your garden, pick a ripe purple heirloom tomato right off the vine, and bite in. The rich and savory smell of the tomato mixes with the vegetal scent of the vine.
Somehow, this experience is captured in the dry leaves of this tea.
As with most black teas, the actual flavor of the tea gains more “regular black tea” flavor and aroma than the dry leaves, but the rich tomatoey smell still comes through. It’s a very good tea.
