Silencio

Spicy Pineapple Black Tea

Rated 4.7 out of 5
Based on 84 reviews

Tastes Like: cigar leaf, black pepper, ripe pineapple
Feels Like: a cuban bolero

The climate of the Cuban coast is gripping. The scent of tobacco and sweet tropical flowers hangs heavy in the air. The aroma of this tea envelops you with warm tobacco notes and cocoa-scented orchid. As you sip, the earthy aroma yields to juicy, sun-ripened pineapple. It finishes on a deep peppery note. A touch of milk mellows its spiciness and brings out the floral sweetness of pineapple. This is a place where everything conspires to make time pass in slowness, enchanted with nostalgia.

So smoky!

I had never tried a tea that was described as smoky so I ordered this one. Somehow I ended up with two bags of this Silencio in my order. The smell of a campfire filled the kitchen as my tea steeped. The smoke flavor was overpowering. I couldn't drink the whole cup and felt like I needed a shower after drinking this tea. It was like sitting around a campfire. I gave one bag to someone else to try. The other bag will also be given away.

So SMOOTH

This tea is delicious. I tried it with cream and honey and wow is it tasty. It has such a smooth, almost cocoa quality to it with a subtle fruity note, like the pineapple is more of an aftertaste. It's rich without being overwhelming. Not getting spicy notes really, but I may try it without cream next time and see if that changes. I haven't even tried my third sample yet and I already feel like August has completely ruined me for store-bought teas!

Love

I just tried my sample size of Silencio that came with my last order. I'm totally in love with the taste of this tea. Next order will be for the 15 cup size and I would get the tin instead if it was offered. Thanks guys, this one is another winner!

I'm Obsessed!

Dark, mysterious, whimsical, and capitvating are all words you could use to describe this tea. But obsessed is the one that is closest to how I feel.

Silencio Is delicious

I love all the teas. I'm a former coffee drinker, and did not think I would enjoy tea in the same way. I was wrong. I was also skeptical of the tobacco leaf, but the tea is hearty and flavorful. It does not taste like cigars! 🙂 A good replacement for coffee lovers, especially if you like to add creamer.
