A lovely cup of tea, and one of my favorites, I got the loose tea version for Christmas and I have to say I am loving it. I steep a teaspoon and a 1/4 [sometimes 1/2] using a coffee filter. This is great to put in my travel mug for the mornings when I have to work, has a good caffiene content and wakes me up nicely. The taste is very strong and delicious I’m not sure if malty is the right word but I’ve seen it used.
This tea does however have a bitterness to it, and I’m not sure it’s due to water temperature or oversteeping it might just be because of the strength.
However any bitterness in the cup tends to disappear with the addition of milk and sugar and this is the only tea I regularly add milk to.
Overall it makes a good strong cup of delicious tasting black tea that’s perfect for the morning or late evening, comfortingly strong. Goes well with sweetener and milk.
