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