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.

Okay March 27, 2016
Reviewer: Katy Bell from Fair Oaks, CA United States  
I had high expectations of this tea, somehow it fell a little flat. I couldn't decide whether I liked the black tea flavor, it wasn't as smooth as my preferred blacks, and it didn't have much depth. The berry flavor has a peppery profile that was also unexpected. Overall the light and delicate flavors remind me of sweet white wine - and apparently I don't like that in my tea.

Unique black tea experience! February 29, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from FL United States  
I have never heard of Andean tea so I was eager to try it. I was truly amazed at the well balanced flavor and immediately fell in love with this tea. Though somewhat similar to Assam black tea, I prefer the softness and honey-sweetness of this tea. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique black tea experience!
