WOW. CITRUSY. CLEAN. BLACK TEA. GOOD.
Folks, what we have here is a home run from Sri Lanka! This tea is smooth with very little astringency. It has citrus notes that are perfectly balanced in the black tea base. I fear I do not have enough of this tea in my cupboard.
You can purchase the Blood Orange Black directly from the Drink The Leaf website.
