Tasters Review:

I know you aren’t supposed to judge a tea by it’s name…but, I admit…I sometimes do!  The name of this one certainly contributed to my overall feelings of this specific tea experience as I am a fan of Renaissance Themed movies, art, stories, history, etc.

Dry – This is malty and ever-so-slight-berry notes trying to hide underneath! It has a very nice aroma!

The color is a reddish-brown.

The taste is sweet and malty with a semi-creamy finish.  It has lovely fruity notes lingering onto the aftertaste.

Yet another winner from Shanti!  They are ROCKIN’ the Straight-up black teas lately!!!!
