Something Different

This tea offers the connoisseur something a bit different. Rich in flavor and taste, TKW does not disappoint. An excellent alternative.

This is going to sound crazy

But I’m tasting chocolate. I am not one of those people who tastes things in wine other than wine, and I’m definitely tasting tea, but I’m also tasting chocolate. I guess this is one of those things that happen when you try the reeeeally good stuff.

Ancient Forest Amazing Taste

I was prepared for the worst but this first loose tea purchase was a winner. I found a quick 5 minutes steep the best for my taste but longer doesn't degrade the quality as the product is superior. A bit worried about it made in China but the quality has been consistent. No problems. AF tea is wondrous poured over ice that pops those black tea taste tones.
