Normally, I don't like straight black tea. Like, at all! The one time I tried black tea, it was harsh on the finish, if that makes sense. Though, I think it might have been bagged tea, so that likely has something to do with it. Fortunately, despite the name sounding like harsh, this one feels so very smooth going down! Naturally, I put in a dab of honey to sweeten it up a bit, and it's a winner in this snow storm going on! This came as a sample in my box when I first ordered, so I'll probably order more next time I buy once I finally finish off the box. :)
