99

3 tsp for a 500mL pot @ 100C, steeped 4 minutes, drunk bare.

I made this a little strong, but it was also a matter of emptying the packet.

My local indie tea shop, Britannia Teas and Gifts, is shifting to online. The bricks and mortar store is gone. I will remain an online customer, and I most definitely need to re-stock on this beautiful blended black tea.

Bright, winey, and malty, with a good body.

99 is pretty darn good! Oh no brick and mortar store?! I’d hate to lose mine!

It’s an excellent blend. Best ever blended black I’ve tasted. Organic, fair trade, and a bit pricey — $11.50 for 50 grams — but well worth it.

I cried over Britannia closing.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
