This is the second time I've had this tea - once more than 5 years, ago, and I had to come back for more. The sweetness sits well with the blend of black and green tea.

I am a black coffee drinker and I absolutely love this tea! Like other reviewers have said, it's a great end-of-the-day tea.
What No
Excellent tea, the flavors mesh together very well. Every part of this tea is enjoyable.
Stephanie Emery
a wonderful tea that I feel simply yet elegantly dose represent the character it is inspired by strong without being bitter uplifting and yet seems to have a hint of world weary. Id highly recommend this tea. I cant wait to order more.

The Silver Fox has layers. This namesake blend does as well. The hazelnut is light at first then you get the rich, earthy fullness of the pu erh dante. It's a blend I wasn't too sure about at first glance, but it works sublimely. I knocked up the brewing time to 4 mins- it gets richer with a little more steeping time, I think. Try not to think too loudly as you enjoy, though. This tea WILL be your division. (4 mins @ 200°C)
