Tea Review: The Shadow (Wild Coast Brew)

The Shadow
Wild Coast Brew
Type: Flavored Black, Herbal
Origin: China, India
Product Description: 
A deep and daring brew featuring the distinct warmth, spiciness, and sweetness of holy basil (tulsi), a blend of LaoShan Black tea and Assam Black tea, milky oats, and cinnamon.  A contemplative and nourishing blend for times of self-discovery.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves are a blend of black tea, holy basil, milky oats, cinnamon, licorice root, ashwagandha, and ginger.

The orange amber infusion has a sweet aroma with tulsi, ginger, cinnamon, and licorice notes most prominent followed by almost chocolate-like notes and a sweetness in the back of the throat in the finish.

This blend was flavorful, smooth, and delicious (my tasting notes include the word "yummy") when brewed for 3 minutes with no astringency or bitterness developing even with a longer steeping.  

This tea was purchased by me.
