I often like adding milk to certain black teas, but I’m going to try this one without so I can review the tea as it is.
Sipping… this tea is interesting because I’m not getting a whole lot of flavor. I detect a little bit of citrus, but otherwise it just tastes like a black tea.. smooth, but uneventful. I can’t pull apart any individual flavor notes.
I think that adding a slice of lemon or some milk would make this tea a bit more interesting.
Even though this tea seems to be on the simpler side of things, I think this would be a great beginner’s tea for those who are just starting out and want something tasty, but not confusing. I personally prefer to have my black teas a bit bolder or with more detectable flavor notes.
Here’s the scoop!
