Oh God, I have been transported.
Good solid strong black base, which reminds me of the Mighty Leaf black tea base for its fruity teas. Smooth with a teeny wee bit of smoke. And then, rose and spice and citrus. Just divine. Really.
If I began four mornings of my week with this tea, despite my tea obsession and outrageous tea collection, still, all would be right with my world. I steeped three times and would likely be able to steep another full flavoured good one. Each steep held up flavourfully well in my timolinos, despite the delicate flavours.
I received this as part of my monthly subscription for September (or is it part of October’s selection?) with Tea Sparrow. No regrets. Highly recommended.I am experimenting with tea subscriptions currently. What I really like about Tea Sparrow is that first, they are Canadian, so I don’t feel like I am getting gouged on the exchange and the shipping charges. Second, their selections from various tea blenders are awesome, high quality, and inspired. Third, their taster packages are far more generous than the other subscriptions that I am subscribing to, so you really do get a chance to dig into the teas rather than feeling that it is all just a ruse to nudge you into buying larger quantities. I do buy larger quantities anyway, of course.
