Now this is a tea! Deep and darkly aromatic, this tea reminds me of a traditional Men’s Lounge, with leather wingback chairs, traditional antique furniture, and well dressed men. What does that mean? This tea Is like drinking a man’s cologne. It is very strong aromatically, flavourfully and stimulates your mind without the caffeine jitters of coffee. It is a beautiful tea if you like strongly flavoured teas like oolong, or deep black teas. It is great with some honey as it mellows the flavour and softens any bitterness, bringing out a richer more sophisticated palate. Again, follow steeping instructions as this is essential to the best experience of this warming extraordinary tea. This is my go to tea when I have to work hard, both mentally or physically. My mind is clear and it is easy to process information. This tea will wake you up, but will also keep you up so be mindful when you drink it and how you will react. This tea is an essential part of my sanity saving/survival program during my October to January nonstop retail season.
