A typical hotel-quality English Breakfast, nothing outstanding. Broken orange pekoe leaves in the bag, orangey-brown liquor, moderate astringency and a little bit of malt. They also have some herbal teas so I’ll have to try those too and see how they are.

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
