Huh, perhaps I have come across yet another old and dusty tea on the shelves of my local tea store because this tasted fairly bland and not robust at all. Perhaps I am expecting too much from the description, but I found it to be a rather weak tea that wouldn’t benefit from the addition of cream and sugar. Unless you are seeking hot sugary cream that is slightly tea flavoured, therefore you are also insane.

Maybe the tea was off? I had this recently and thought it was excellent; quite strong (although not the strongest but a vigorously strong morning cuppa and decided I liked it best with milk and a touch of sugar.

This wasn’t strong at all, it reminded me of a weak teabag english breakfast really. Gutted, that makes the second Harney & Sons tea I’ve had that has been stale. The NZ distributors must be really slack :/

Oh my, this is my favorite morning cuppa. I find the flannel nice, honey and milk and it’s just perfect.
