Either my tastes have changed or the blend has changed (I read a review from a month ago that said this tea is purely African sourced now) but I don’t remember this tea being so blah.
I brewed it up pretty strong with 1.5 teaspoons for about 10-12 ounces of water. I did add milk and sugar, though not much of either, because I generally do with plain black teas. My palate isn’t discriminatory enough to cut out the bitterness I get from blacks without sugar at least.
Anyway back to this tea, I don’t get much tasting notes at all when I drink it. It causes a little bit of dryness at the back of my throat after I think it and there’s some slight malty flavour to it, but all in all it’s a very boring tea. Guess I’ll keep looking for an English Breakfast I like, one with a bit more character to it.
