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!!!!
