Looks like coffee. Kinda smells like coffee. Tastes like tea! Just the way I like it. Atlantic Spice Company China Black Tea BOP is one of those teas. Its a loose leaf tea, but the leaves are chopped up into tiny pieces that almost look like coffee grounds. When you smell this tea there are hints of coffee in the earthy aroma, but the flavor is all tea. Although not at rich as I like my black tea to taste this one has a nice hearty, toasty taste.

If you buy this tea in bulk it is quite inexpensive and who doesn’t  love a giant bag a loose leaf tea around to tempt you to make another cuppa? This tea is nothing fancy, but does make a nice everyday tea. Easy to drink and also makes great iced tea.

Taste – 3.5 of 5 leaves  – A decent tasty tea.
Steepability –  4 of 5 leaves — this tea requires very little effort.

I ordered this tea from Atlantic Spice Company, a wholesaler I like quite a bit. I hoped it would be a big hit for me like their BOP Assam that I LOVE (review coming soon) but I found this one wasn’t really my favorite. It’s an OK inexpensive tea but it wasn’t strong enough to hold up to adding cream & sugar the way I like my tea. So I gave it to Abby and luckily she likes it! 🙂

Taste – 2.5 of 5 leaves – This tea is just OK

Steepability – 4 of 5 leaves — this tea requires very little effort.
