Oooh it's smooth. It's very very smooth. And check out how pretty the leaves are! Yes, those are flower petals in black tea and no, this doesn't taste anything like an Earl Grey. That's why I love this tea so much. It takes a classic and puts a wonderful spin on it.
Chi Trading's Sussex Blend is delicious and so, so mellow. The Assam and Kenyan teas mean this is a good, powerful breakfast blend to get you up and going in the morning, but the mellowness from the Safflower petals means its more a gentle awakening. You'll pick up the soft floral scent when you open the bag.
AND THE LEAVES ARE SO PRETTY AND ORANGE!!!!!
