I ordered Dark Sugar Plum as a holiday treat and it has earned a place in my standard orders when it is available! The velvety brew is rich and flavorful… a warming luxury on a crisp , damp evening !
Haven’t had much time to give it a good try—we left on an extended road trip and will be traveling until the 26th. Too bad I didn’t pack tea with me! Tea on the road is mostly horrible. Still, my favorite to date is the Saigon Breakfast tea. I’ll let you know after I get back. 😁
