English Breakfast is absolutely one of my favourite teas.
STASH makes a lovely English Breakfast. It is mild, with almost no aroma, while still possessing considerable flavour. As it is a black tea, I added milk and sugar, which blend well, and yet seem to remain somehow distinct. This is a gentle tea that, in this instance, I enjoyed unaccompanied – which is to say, without food – but I imagine it would go well with a lighter meal or snack (anything too heavy would distract from the tea).
I enjoyed a second cup without milk, and the flavour is (naturally) more pronounced, with just the tiniest bit of bitterness. It’s still a tea that I can enjoy with only sugar, though.
Recommended for those who like a gentle tea that is still quite flavourful.
