This cuppa is a little stronger than normal because what I had in the sample bag amounted to about a teaspoon and a third – so not enough to get two uses out of it. I ended up just shrugging and dumping the whole thing in my mug.
This time I added some skim milk to the tea as an experiment, as many teas have been improved by adding milk or milk substitutes to them. In this case the results were a bit disapointing. The milk make the tea taste very…ordinary. I’m not picking up those berry-like notes anymore and the honeyed/burnt-sugar flavour is somewhat dulled. It’s not bad – it’s still a smooth, nice-tasting Ceylon – but it’s lost much of its uniqueness.
