drank English Breakfast by Harney & Sons
183 tasting notes

This smells like wood while steeping….
I’ve only had English Breakfast one other time…when last year my friend from England made me a “traditional English” cup of tea with milk and all. Didn’t like it then, but can’t remember what it tasted like. Don’t remember it tasting like wood though.
I like the malty black teas…need more malty black teas to try. I keep finding all these woody teas…
I would think maybe my taste is just changing. But then I try black teas that I have that I love and thought were malty and they taste the same. Maybe I just keep buying the wrong teas…I don’t know.
If anyone has any really good malty teas to recommend, let me know! Because I really wanna find a good, malty tea!
This one, however, is not as bad as expected.
It’s like half malty and half woody. It’s initially a light malt flavor but then changes to wood. It’s weird. But not actually that bad. I would drink this again. Wouldn’t buy it, but would drink it again willingly.
Harney & Sons sent me 4 tea bags of this as free samples. xD Guess they really wanted me to try this one-haha! As I’m finishing the first steep I actually can see this tea growing on me. But I guess I will see what happens with the next three tea bags. :P

Flavors: Malt, Wood

Have you tried Tiger Assam from Andrews & Dunham? That’s a malt bomb!

(And Yay! You’re drinking tea again ;-))

Ost

I haven’t! I’m kinda skeptical of buying from them because it’s in such large amounts! Wish they had samples. ><

(Haha yah! I hope it stays! :P)

TheTeaFairy

Yes, same here, I haven’t ordered any of their teas yet because of the quantity issue. I was lucky cause a friend sent me a sample of Tiger Assam and I really like it!

Ost

Ah well I will have to try that one sometime! Gotta hunt down someone who has it and will send me a sample of it haha!
