Customer Reviews:


by Andrew S.
(Tea Provided For Review) I don't regularly drink black teas, but god this is good. I could taste tons of cinnamon and malty notes as well as honey undertones. While this tea has not convinced me to convert from floral oolongs I love drinking it. Like the description says it has no astringency and incredibly smooth.
