Andean Princess Tea

This rare, organic black tea is grown in Colombia! The fresh, high-grown leaves are blended with Andean raspberries and Isabella grapes; a uniquely sophisticated tea. This uncommon tea is grown in young, organic soil that contains fine deposits of volcanic ash and barely altered basalt flows. The mineral composition of the soil provides depth and character. Due to the region's close proximity to the equator, sun rays are able to reach the surface of the ground and contribute to photosynthesis, increasing productivity in the tea plant. The perfect balance of dry and rainy growing seasons results in an extremely high level of tips in the tea leaves plucked. The resulting tea has an exquisite, natural honey taste and a tropical sweetness.

Smooth January 23, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Oakton, VA United States  
I really like this tea.  This is one you need to brew just right and you'll be surprised how delicious it can be.  I have not tried it cold, but I'm sure it would be just as smooth and rewarding.  I love rasberries and you can taste a slight (and just enough) of the rasberry/grape flavor.

Disappointing December 22, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Fairfax, VA United States  
Not sure what I expected, but it was not this. Maybe my batch was off but no distinctive flavor. i love black tea, but this was washed out and def. no raspberry flavor... perhaps why it is on sale.

Thought it would have more fruit notes, not bad overall.

You have to treat this like a princess January 5, 2018
Reviewer: John from Washington, DC United States  
I'm seeing reviews that his tea is either flavorless or a little harsh. I had that experience when I treated it like a usual black tea that I steeped for 5+ minutes with water straight from the boil.

Then I cranked the steep temperature back to about 180 and only steeped for 2-3 minutes. Wow. Now I can taste all of the fruit and honey and black pepper and other flavors I saw in the description. This is very unique but subtle enough I can drink it regularly. Very nice experience.
