1 Tasting Note


This was such a great tea and now I can’t find it anywhere. :( It’s medium boldness, rich and aromatic but not astringent. It also doesn’t have a lot of caffeine. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is but it definitely has a unique taste that I imagine comes from being grown in Africa. You don’t want to use water that’s too hot as the tea is fine, else you’ll mostly just taste the dark bold flavor and miss the more delicate notes. Also, I wouldn’t use the tea bag as that keeps the flavor from diffusing into the water.

Metropolitan Tea Company is a wholesaler – one of the biggest in North America, so odds are that this blend is probably carried elsewhere but potentially under a different name. In my experience, a lot of places don’t completely change the catalog names of MTC blends or also leaves the tea description provided by MTC the exact same – with a bit of digging you could probably find it offered by another company! :)


Thanks Roswell! I’ll try to find it. :)
