Ebony Wine Tea from White August Tea Company

The aroma reminds me of a cross between ice(d) wine and Cabernet! It’s a nicely flavored black tea. The currant leaves and berries are perfectly in tune with my palate! This is juicy and has a nice evenness to the sweet-berry verses the sour-berry. I think it’s just lovely!

Yunnan Black Gold Tea from TeaVert

Yunnan Black Gold Tea from TeaVert is semi-smokey yet fairly rich and malty. It smells more like honey than other Yunnan’s I have tried thus far. It’s a pretty strong one, too! The smokey and peppery notes are wonderful. As it cools I can pick up on a a chewier and sweeter taste than before while drinking the hotter version.
