The flavor is just exquisite. This is the best ever Muscatel I have come across; from Teabox or elsewhere 👌👌
Absolutely my most fabulous tea out of the black sampler box (along with Margaret's Hope Summer).
Really great tea, flavourful. I also add a splash of milk& sugar. I find it sweet + nutty
One of my favorites!! Great way to start my mornings.
