Hmmm, it’s a blend and it’s a bit ordinary. Nevertheless, I have sourced a quality EB and am giving it a go.
So, a quickish steep as it’s getting dark quickly. Turns out there’s PLENTY of flavour.
Firstly, tastes to me like there’s some Kenyan in this. Now, I don’t mind Kenyan Tea per se, I just have a strong opinion that it has no place in an EB.
Additional flavours include some Keemun and some Yunnan, something like a Ceylon OP and a dark Indian tea, perhaps Nighiri.
The fact that they are easy to identify is an indication of what’s wrong with this tea – it has no cohesion. It’s not a blend, it’s a bunch of different teas in a cup.
Whatever cheap tea is the underlying taste, it’s awful. I once heard a tea described as “like chewing tobacco” and I think i’ll break that phrase out here.
Not a great tea. Not even a good tea. But nevertheless, a cut above a teabag!
