This tea is very similar to the Scottish Breakfast but tastes a little stronger. The Kenyan tea is dominate in this blend but is still much milder than any other African tea I have drank. It still has a kick to it and is not bitter at all. More steeping may cause bitterness but I like the 3 minute steep. The tea is very tasty and while it says afternoon tea, I’m drinking it for breakfast and it works. Another T.J.Maxx tea @$5 for 125 grams.
