I tried this tea while I was on vacation at Disney World (managed to snag a reservation for afternoon tea at the Grand Floridian!). It had a delicious aroma, very fruity with a touch of vanilla. As for the taste, I found it a bit dry for the first cup or two. But the brightness of the Ceylon complimented the fruit notes well, and when I added a little sugar to the third cup, it enhanced the sweetness and improved the flavor. So I’d recommend drinking this tea with sugar, or some other sweetener. Overall, this was a sophisticated black tea that went well with sandwiches and pastries, which made it a great choice for afternoon tea.

I’m a writer who drinks tea to survive the creative process. A few years ago, I discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I’ve been hoarding all kinds of tea ever since!

My favorite teas change by the day. I usually drink them unsweetened, without milk. I like white and green teas, but I tend to prefer black and oolong these days. Rooibos can be hit-or-miss, same with herbals. (I mostly avoid blends with hibiscus, as I find it too tart, and I’m not a huge mint fan.) But I love when I find a good herbal that I can enjoy when I don’t want caffeine. I’m actively searching for tasty blends with chamomile in them.

I enjoy both flavored and straight teas. Some of my favorite flavors are vanilla, spice, apple, orange, chocolate, and peach. I’m obsessed with ginger. Seriously. I’ve been known to add extra ginger to teas that already have absurd amounts of spice in them. You’ve been warned. ;)
