Tea of the morning. This is a fairly standard English Breakfast Blend. I definitely taste the Assam and Ceylon. I want to say there is also some Kenyan tea in this blend as well, but the Assam is the dominant tea, so it’s hard for me to tell. It’s of medium body and strength, and there’s a nice malty flavor and a sour lemon like finish. It’s easy to sip plain, but of course it takes milk and sugar very well. All in all this is a nice tea, but there’s nothing that’s making me want to go back for another cup. I do, however, think this would make excellent iced tea.

Edit: SimplyJenW has kindly pointed put that this blend is Assam and Keemun. Totally makes sense! I’m leaving my original post as is because it’s a good reminder to me that I still have a lot to learn. Thankfully learning about tea is always a joy. :)

I think this one is a blend of just Keemun and Assam.
