|"Brews up a beautiful golden color with a warming aroma... one of my black tea standards. Be careful not to overbrew, as it can become bitter."|
This blend of "the finest quality teas from the high mountain slopes of Kenya and the Assam Valley of India" does not look or smell like anything spectacular in the bag but brewed it produces a beautiful golden color and warming aroma. I take this tea with a little soy milk and occasionally a little honey to sweeten the taste. I think of this blend as being perfectly suited to a meal, particularly a very savory meal, it has the refreshing taste of a good breakfast blend and enough caffeine to get you up and going, but I personally find myself turning to it more in the late afternoon or evening. It is definitely not a desert tea, although lingering with a cup of this tea for hours after a meal is very appealing. I would warn of over-steeping as it could become bitter quickly.
