My first foray with Adagio’s English Breakfast, and I am quite impressed. I’m new to loose leaf tea, but I’ve had many different English breakfast blends from bags.
The loose leaf variant is simply superb, especially compared to its bagged brethren. The taste was very rich and indulging. I let the tea steep for 4 minutes, since that was half way through the 3-5 minutes suggested, and the flavor was fantastic.
The color was rich, and the aroma made me want to drink another cup as soon as I was finished with the first!
So, to update, I did in fact have another cup as soon as I finished my last one. This cup I added a bit of milk and sugar vs the honey that I usually put in my tea. I liked my first cup better. I’m not one for milk in my tea, but I wanted to see if it would make the cup better or worse. I think I’ll be strictly sticking to honey in my black teas in the future.
