Pleasant roasty-toasty aroma

This tea is pretty good. The aroma is the best part. I wouldn't say it smells or even has notes of toasted rice at all, but it definitely has some sort of pleasantly mild roast-toast smell to it. I don't detect the floral/fruity notes per the description. But overall it's a nice, smooth tea. I tried it with milk and didn't like that. It's best enjoyed on its on in my opinion because the flavor is subtle. First re-steep is kind of weak. Note that the directions from time and temperature differ from what's on the page here vs on the bag of loose leaf.

Found My Black Tea

I love this tea - earthy, but with a vanilla sweet underflavor. A little creamer and perfect morning cup!

Wild rice in a cup.

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.

My new favorite tea

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.

An excellent tea!!

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!
