Thanks for another in the sale, Ost! I was hoping for the exact scent of Paris with this one, but it sadly isn’t quite. Regardless, this might not be the freshest example of this tea. I’m not sure how old it is, but it IS stored well in a tin. But that might become the problem with any tea (age, storage). Even an unflavored tea ages in flavor. I guess any tea review on Steepster might be a little unfair unless the tea is the freshest it can possibly be. And I guess I worry about that a lot, especially if my tasting note is one of the only tasting notes for a tea. ANYWAY, this isn’t a bad tea, but it certainly isn’t at the amazing flavor levels of Paris Black. It is great rooibos base though: full in flavor without throat scratchiness, deep in color. And the rooibos pairs well with the slight berry flavor. I almost want to steep up the Paris Black anyway though. This one is making me crave that one more.
