This tea is one of my favorites. It’s my go to to get a good kick of caffeine and never fails. As a cheap, loose leaf tea it is profound. It’s sharp, it’s tough, it puts hair on your chest and it really is one of the best teas I have in my stash of tea.

Either brewing one cup in a small ball or brewing a whole pot, it really has never let me down.

Highly recommend it for a plain, simple black tea.
Also, in my opinion, you don’t need to add sugar to it. For some reason, when I did add sugar, it made it not that strong, oddly. To each their own, I guess.

200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more

Let’s keep this short:
I like ornithology (study of birds) and minerals (rocks).
Minerals are fun because there are loads of them and I’ve met some great people from them.
Birds are fun because I like birds.
The kakapo, my icon, is a flightless parrot. It’s so cool.

The person who really got me into tea is a friend in real life and the person who got me into this:
“IIfx”. You may notice he and I review the same teas, just because we share a lot of teas. I’m usually the risk taker, and he just takes the rest. :P

I must say, after seeing some of the reviews here, I am a bloody right noob. I don’t know squat, and I like it that way.
