A decent black tea, relatively strong enough to be bitter without sugar, but overall a basic tea with no overpowering flavor notes. It does have a lovely spice note to it which sets it apart and creates a pleasant bite!

I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and figured Moriartea would do the trick, but I felt it simply wasn't as strong as I hoped. It has a lovely ginger taste that normally I am not fond of, but it works well in this blend. update: I drink this tea almost every day and it's now one of my favorites. I can't for the life of me understand why I didn't think this was any less than amazing, so, updated review!! FAVE~! xoxo

Really glad I got this in addition to the sampler, I LOVE IT! I'm a sucker for rooibos teas, but the greens balance it out perfectly and make for a wonderful afternoon pick-me-up without giving too many jitters. It's surprisingly sweet and smells absolutely fantastic. With these more delicate teas you need to steep them at a little less than boiling temperature, so make sure you take the water off heat before it gets too hot. This was a fantastic purchase! :) (3 mins @ 120°F)

Of the three, Kurt is definitely my favorite tea. Wow. First of all it looks extremely beautiful. The smell of the peach is strong and tropical, although I wouldn't call it fruity, I would say it's more sharp than anything. It's there and it will not be ignored! Brewed plain is just...wow, this tea took my breath away. It is strong and sharp and you can really taste the peach and it compliments the chai perfectly. I normally really dislike fruity teas, but I am simply overcome by the taste of this tea. It is not bitter or tart AT ALL and I will say it's because the cream balances the flavor wonderfully. No additives needed here. It's simply perfect. I already want to order another pouch because I just know this isn't going to last, it is delicious. Might need to order the tin!

When opening the bag you can really smell the incredible amount of depth and smoke in this tea, it really smells like fall. Brewed it is definitely strong with its presence but not in an unpleasant way, in its taste it is mild and deep. In general the cinnamon taste is lovely and the almond compliments it well. With a bit of cream this tea is really incredible. It is mild but has so many earthy tones to it. The cinnamon makes the tea sweet, but with a very small touch of a sweetener like Agave it is absolutely PERFECT and compliments it wonderfully. I have never tasted such a SMOOTH tea. The aftertaste is simply wonderful, you just feel really good after having it. Might be my new favorite cup in the morning.

The smell of this tea is fantastically sweet with a strong chocolate smell while being very deep and warm. Brewed the smell becomes that much more sensational and makes a beautiful and strong black tea. It is very sweet and has a pleasant aftertaste, but I would watch about steeping it too long as chocolate can be tricky in tea. The cream makes this very smooth and none is needed. The cinnamon is heightened with a bit of sweetner like Agave to give a very pleasant and full taste to this tea.
