americantangierTangier is a blend of black tea with apricots and saffron petals. American Tea Room's website states: "Its apricot aroma is evocative of an exotic evening in Tangier, Morocco". Having never been to Morocco, I can't really say whether or not I agree with that statement. However, I can say that its not hard to see why this tea is one of American Tea Room's most popular teas. From the minute I opened my sample, I knew this tea was a keeper. The fruitiness of the apricot is perfectly balanced with the floral essence of the saffron petals. The black tea base is a high quality Sri Lankan tea, having large leaves and a discrete fruity flavor that serves this blend well. The result is a smooth-drinking tea in which each of the ingredients is easily detectable, but none overpowers the others. Those that tend to shy awat from overly perfumey flowery teas will probably still enjoy this tea because the floral contribution is well-balanced with the other flavors. My overall impression of this tea was that it was elegant and sophisiticated, yet approachable. I drank (and thoroughly enjoyed) most of my sample hot and unsweetened; I did have a little bit as an unsweetened iced tea and that was also quite tasty. Without sugar, this tea had a gentle briskness to it; addition of sugar gave the tea more of a dessert quality. This is a tea I hope to buy soon, and one that I would certainly recommend to others looking for a high-quality fruit or flower blend.
