Unique. Different. Extraordinary. Strong. Very strong. I drink it straight, without sugar or milk. I love it.
I was intrigued by the description of the tea and its links to specific parts of Germany (my great-grandparents were from Bremen and Bremerhaven, but my previous experience with tea companies have been all American or British). And I like strong teas, so why not try it. It is delightful - the kind of strength that is due to the blend instead of oversteeping. I didn't try it as recommended (with the rock sugar), since I tend to prefer my tea black and don't have rock sugar. But that treatment would not overpower this tea.
I like tea and I like a lot of kinds of teas, simply put. But I am also horrendously picky. I have tried literally every single brand of Ostfriesischer Schwarztee that's available in most stores and have all but given up. But this - this is the one. It's malty, very malty, very strong but not bitter. It has both aroma and a strong, brewy TASTE. Excellent alone or, as I do it, with a splash of Hafermilch and chunky brown sugar. Have bought again and again.
