I went through all the teas in the box the day it arrived and made a list for myself. There are several I want to sample before sending it on, so I plan to have a few cups each day. More than my usual amount, for sure. I was thinking today that I wanted something fruity or maybe chocolaty, but definitely a black tea to start, so I went through the list to check my options. I came across this tea and thought an unflavored black tea would do the trick. I was convinced once I opened the bag and caught the aroma.
It steeped up lighter than I expected. With with a bit of honey added, it was a treat. I would say it’s malt rather than chocolate, but it still turned out to be just what I was hoping for. Probably too light to add milk, at least for me, so I left it out. I got distracted and set it down in the kitchen somewhere, and when I went to pick it up again I saw that the mug was actually full of a turmeric tea I made at James’ request for his allergies. Of course, when I went to check he had my teacup and there was none left. How he did not notice he was drinking a completely different tea I’ll never know. More likely, he realized mine was better and feigned ignorance. Can’t say I blame him after catching a whiff of his.
I enjoyed this one and am glad to have tried it, but I have other black teas I enjoy more so I’ll be passing this one along.
