I was lucky enough to get my hands on a sample of this brand new tea from Royal Tea of Kenya. I was only able to get to sit down with it today. The smell of the dry tea is malty and rich. I hoped that smell translated to smell while steeping and of course taste!

As it was steeping the malty flavor really came out to play. I love this seeing as I can’t do regular beer anymore due to the whole no gluten thing. The smell was also very strong and rich. Plus the color of the liquid is a beautiful reddish-orange color I haven’t seem in a tea before. Just stunning! The taste? Rich and smooth and full of flavor. I’ll write more about this tea when I can have a proper sit down with it and my notebook.

I am a tea lover, a wife, mom of one, and servant to three cats (all rescues). I love to read and write. I’m also a BIG fan of the following shows: BBC Sherlock, Doctor Who, Law and Order, Supernatural, Bones, and more – bless Netflix.

I started drinking and enjoying tea when I was 7 (sure it was bagged Lipton, but it got me started) with my grandmother. As I said it was Lipton with milk and sugar (and peanut butter and jelly on toast) and my love just grew from there. I was brought to loose leaf through a trip to Teavana. But my taste has expanded to many different types of tea since then. I review teas at the link provided, check it out!
