This one isn’t bad, but reminds of what many companies market as English Breakfast. I do try to steep it a shorter time since the leaf particles are smaller than I usually buy, but today I understeeped it so it is a little bland. Even so, it is more astringent than my favorite pekoe which is Extra Fancy Ceylon Orange Pekoe from A Southern Season. It is more of a strong morning wake-up cuppa than a comforting, round, smooth aaaaah! relaxation tea. A good buy for the price, but I won’t be making an effort to keep it in the cupboard. When this tin is empty I will fill it with Southern Season pekoe!
