Its OK"I really liked this blend for the fruity qualities and solid Ceylon tea flavours. I gave this blend to some children that I was nannying for too, and they also enjoyed the blend. My primary concern is the lack of an all inclusive ingredient list. "

This particular blend is a nice balance of fruitful delight and black tea flavour. So many flavoured teas today are far too fruity and the tea flavours can be missed altogether. Although this tea was meant for cold press (or cold brewing) I enjoyed it hot as well. The cold brew afforded more of the fruit flavours, and the warm let the black tea wave its flag. I brewed a heaping tsp. of this tea in 8 oz. of water at 212˚F for 3 minutes. I also shared this with a group of 8-10 year olds and they all liked it. When children like anything that also appeals to adult palates, I always try to make a mental note, because those finds can be rare.

I really liked this blend for the fruity qualities and solid Ceylon tea flavours. However, my primary concern is the lack of an all inclusive ingredient list. I think that a failure to list ingredients thoroughly is a dangerous practice with the insurgence of allergies and people with food sensitivities. In the past there have been companies that have refused my request to list their ingredients because it was "a secret recipe." Mark T. Wendell Tea Company is not so brazen as this, thankfully, but there is still due concern about what exactly I allow into my body.
