Yesterday was my birthday and I wanted to have a special cup of tea. I had a few kinds.. but nothing incredibly special. I couldn’t fully enjoy them because I was suffering from the beginning of a bad cold — sneezing, watery eyes, sore throat, cough, sniffly nose. Not fun. Today, it’s now much worse & at this point, I can’t taste much of anything.

I had a nice cup of this tea & milk earlier today when I could still taste. It was a little bit malty and creamy — very enjoyable. Even if I could taste a bit more, I’m sure I would enjoy this tea for those times when you just need a cup of english breakfast tea & milk. Hopefully this cold goes away quickly and I can get back to sipping my tea & enjoying the holidays!

70-79 – Room for improvement, but not bad.
60-69 – Mediocre.
50-59 – Bad. Will not purchase.
49 & below – Depending on the more specific rating: Undrinkable. Yuck. Will not purchase.
