This is not a tea I would normally order as I tend to like the flavoured black teas. The name intrigued me, so I thought I would give it a try. Someone commented that it has a rice flavour.......I will go a step further and say it has a wild rice flavour and smell. Wild rice is grown and processed in our area of Canada and the smell and taste is wonderful. This tea doesn’t make the “my favourite “ list, but I will order it again.
I'm a huge fan of pure black tea. This one is my current favorite. It is smooth and rich in flavor. I like my tea strong so I steep it for 9-10 minutes and this tea is never bitter.
Secret Village Tea is one of the best teas we have tasted! It has a very smooth flavor with a floral finish that is enhanced with a little half and half.
Although it is a bit pricey, it is worth every penny!
This is my new favorite black tea. I thought it tasted a little bit like toasted rice.
I am not a black tea fan and far prefer green teas. However, I decided to try the Secret Village Tea because the name sounded so cool. What I noticed is that it tasted really fresh and although I still favor green teas, this black tea has me rethinking how I feel about them. It’s good. It’s very good.
