Their Organic Banaspaty Bliss Black Tea is a black tea from the Banaspaty Tea Estate located in the hills of the Assam Region of India. The smell of the steeped leaves and the steeped tea was very sweet and inviting. The tea’s liquor was also sweet,with some notes of honey, which aided in the smooth flavor of the tea. There was also some identifiable tobacco notes, as well as some dark forest-like flavors,that reminds me of driving through a forest. For a black tea, the flavor was not as full bodied as expected,which is why I think this tea would be a good morning tea or a good day to day tea, one that would take long to get bored of. I have had nothing but a good experience with Steven and Jennifer from LeafSpa,so I definitely recommend you checking this company out! Not only do I suggest them because they are from New Jersey, where I am from and I love to represent my home state, but because LeafSpa is a wonderful company and are working towards great goals to maintain organic and fair trade teas and contribute to their community and the environment through improving global trade conditions.
