Thumbs up!"The apricot is a nice addition and well done without oily, phony tasting residue and the tea's clean, dry finish would lend itself nicely to pairing with many desserts."

americantangierAmong numerous black teas offered by American Tea Room is Tangier, described by the website as "A premium Sri Lankan black tea with apricot and saffron petals." The tea has a fantastic scent, rich and warmly peachy and apricot-y. The black leaves are very long and slender and shot through with saffron and clusters of petals. Festive and attractive to look at, it is still the scent of this tea that will lure you the most.

I steeped a tablespoon and a half of the leaf with two hundred degree water for three minutes in our 24 ounce breakfast tea pot.

The liquor resulting is a coppery caramel color, not too dark, with a good black tea taste tending toward the brisk with a nice astringency. The apricot plays a filling and warming role beneath the tea's flavor. I found that just a touch of sweetener rounded the tea out beautifully by heightening the fruity flavors.

Overall, this tea would appeal to a wide audience. The apricot is a nice addition and well done without oily, phony tasting residue. The clean, dry finish would lend itself nicely to pairing with many desserts, from fruit based winter delights to chocolate, chocolate, chocolate.

And while winter is drawing down over the north, it's easy to get a feeling for how pleasant this tea would be on ice or just chilled nicely for a summer afternoon.

Special Offer! Free shipping on all purchases over $50 from AmericanTeaRoom.com.
