My favourite black tea blend, ever, and I have drunk many. While David’sTea’s David’s Organic Breakfast gives this blend a serious challenge, Britannia’s English Breakfast remains my Writin Tea, my comfort, and, when needed, my wake-up. I am not sure what’s in this blend, but I will guess at a goodly amount of Keemun (winey), Assam (malt and heft) and possibly Ceylon (brightness). Deep and complex, with many tastes dancing in the mouth. I never let myself run out of this one. I steep it just over three minutes but have drunk it after 5+ minutes. Can get a little tannic and astringent around 4-5 minutes, so just treat it nice.

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE. New novel this March called THIS MARLOWE.

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

Floral oolong and complex black teas are my favourites.
