The Library: Malty Black Tea

Rated 4.6 out of 5
Based on 230 reviews

Tastes Like: buttered toast, brown bread, almond
Feels Like: morning in the library

The Library was previously known as Leatherbound. Same tea, new name!

Picture the dark wooden walls of a library lined with rows of books, like the iconic Long Room of Trinity College in Dublin. There is a seductive atmosphere that is both austere and comforting. The bready aroma of this tea is complemented by the unique nuttiness of caraway. This high grade black assam tea has a velvety mouthfeel and rich flavor. Hints of cocoa and sweet almond aromas enliven the mix, like the occasional contemporary novel whose glossy cover pops against the worn literary classics. A drop of milk tips the flavor towards a smooth creamy stout. Like sinking into a stately club chair to ponder the pages between your hands, this tea invites reflection. This makes a rich breakfast tea, and a great afternoon tea with shortbread or cherry scones.

Makes other brands of black tea embarrassed

Malty, rich, not bitter in any way.

Not my cup of tea

I think it would be wonderful for someone else. I wasn't too fond of the taste after brewing. Smelling it is wonderful.
