Taster’s Review:

I’ve been reading all kinds of lovely reviews about teas from In Nature from my SororiTea Sister, Jennifer, but I haven’t yet tried any of them … until now!

This really is a fantastic black tea.  I mean, like FANTASTIC!

The flavor is remarkably smooth and rich.  It has almost a creamy consistency to it and a very toothsome quality.  I can taste notes of malt which lends itself to a fresh baked bread kind of characteristic.

This is truly one of the most delightful black teas I’ve yet to encounter.  It is so delicious it certainly doesn’t need enhancement (aka flavoring) … although it is quite nice with a drizzle of agave nectar and I found that the sweetener brought out some caramel-y notes that I didn’t notice before adding the agave nectar.  I wouldn’t add milk to this just because I’d be afraid it would spoil the amazing complexity to the cup and I find it to be just perfect without the milk… but I imagine it would also taste really lovely with it too.

This is about as perfect as a black tea can get!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
