My review today is from a vendor based in the United Kingdom that is new to me. I received a very generous sample that consisted of rather long black tea leaves that are narrow and twisted. There isn't much a dry aroma except for a general scent that to me means tea.

Since these leaves are so long I ended up using three rounded tablespoons of leaves to 1200 ml of boiling water and I let it steep for four minutes. The liquor is a soft medium brown with burnt orange at the edges of my mug. And it has a wonderful blend of pepper and cooked apples for a fragrance.

This is a smooth tea with no sharp edges to be found. It has fruity taste that reminds me of fresh peaches and baked apples. There is an underlying hint of white pepper and allspice. All together it makes for an enjoyable cup of tea perfect for those sleepy afternoons when you are looking for a bit of a kick. It would be great for a lot of folks in the morning but I tend to prefer more a bite for my first pot of the day.

Tea Horse also has a nice monthly subscription club that is very affordable and has what looks to be some tasty teas. I wish that they were local to me as in September one of their teas is an oolong for Vietnam that I wouldn't mind checking out.
