The Champions

Tasters Review:

Our friends at Shanti Tea in Canada have done it again!  They’ve come out with another lovely black tea.  And not just any black tea…a ChariTEA!  (Read above if you haven’t already)

The aroma of this one is that of a fairly strong black tea.

What really made me swoon was the color after infusing it!  It’s a gorgeous deep burgundy color.  Both the aroma and the color of the tea made me crave the bold taste from there-on-out!

This is a bold – but not bitter – black tea.  It’s malty yet well-rounded!  The aftertaste is pretty pleasant, too.  It’s smooth on the tongue and warms the heart!  I really REALLY like this tea!  This is one of those unflavored black teas that everyone should have on hand!
