OMG….I don’t even want to know how long it’s been since I’ve reviewed a tea…wouldn’t be surprised if it’s around this time last Winter.
I got this tea as a Christmas present from my uncle, a pleasant surprise, as I didn’t know he knew I was a tea drinker. I had also gotten White Christmas Tea, and Raspberry Black tea from Harney, as well as a nice teapot set in silverplate with a beautiful tray. I going to have to have myself a little tea party soon to break it in.
On to this tea:
Opening the tin, out comes a sharp, sweet mango-y scent that makes me almost impatient to get this brewed so I can drink it. While, as usuall…I am not sure I would want more of this after the tea is gone, I think at the very least I will enjoy this tin. Slightly astringent, but not at all unpleasant…my misgivings have more to do with the fact that I am not sure I would reach for this one very often.But I don’t know, the end of this tin could be that I have to buy another.
Meh, using my kindle fire to write this review, and I can’t adjust the rating, so will have to wait til I am on my laptop this evening…I’m thinking somewhere in the high 70’s. like 77.
