Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: McNulty’s Tea & Coffee
I was not able to locate a description of this tea on McNulty’s website.
I love plums, so I was very excited to try this flavored tea from McNulty’s. The dry leaf smells like a juicy plum!
The black tea base is a fairly mellow tasting tea with a mild astringency. Based upon the evenness of the flavor, I would say it’s probably a Ceylon. It is brisk and smooth.
The plum flavor doesn’t overwhelm the black tea, and I like that. The plum is sweet with just a whisper of tartness to it. It tastes like a fresh, plump plum that’s just been plucked off the plum tree! (Can you say that three times fast?)
What I like best about this tea is that it tastes like tea that’s been flavored with the essence of plum. It doesn’t taste like an overly sweet, artificially flavored drink with a hint of tea flavoring in the background. It is delicious hot, but I think I prefer it chilled! It is very refreshing!
