Maya Angelou's Black Tea Blend
A delicately balanced blend with a reddish amber color and a fruity, heady, sassy taste. The combination of pineapple, vanilla, and orange dance playfully on the tongue. The addition of cloves brings a new depth to this tea, while the hibiscus adds a fruity flavor and reddish tinge to the amber cup. There is a mild astringency with a lingering fruity, spiced taste on the tongue.
