I ordered this tea based on the glowing reviews, but it was one of the worst Tea Forte teas I've ever had! I tried it alone, with milk, and with sugar, but the rum flavor overpowers everything else. I couldn't even finish the canister and gave it to a friend who is using it as flavoring in her baking and dessert projects.
It would be perfect to add some actual alcohol to this tea. I am sadly nursing and can't afford to. It would be perfect for sauces or for teetotalers that might want something that has the taste of rum but is merely tea. I didn't even realize there were blackberry leaves in there.
