Well, finally getting into some samples I’ve had in my cupboard for years. Shame!! They have at least been in hermetically sealed bags, but I don’t know how they’d compare versus when they were fresher. My tea neglect phase went on far too long, and now this company isn’t even around any longer. Too bad; they had great prices and lovely sampler packs. I’m sure there are great alternatives.
Anyhow, this is a nice black tea with some fruitiness and a bit of a tartness to it. Reminiscent of red currant a little. The main flavour is a bit malty, and just a very satisfying black. I’ve always been partial to Ceylon blacks in the past, so it’s nice to try a different non-blend. Quite enjoyable!
