The reviews on this tea at tea party today shocked me! I consider this to be a rather strong tea, but my youngest daughter didn’t even TOUCH Golden Monkey, her favorite, because she was enjoying this one so much! And my guest who never adds sugar and rarely adds milk proclaimed it an excellent tea. While I like this tea, I do consider it a strong tea for a heartier meal or for breakfast and I take it with milk and sugar. I felt it was a bit too rough to be paired with my blueberry scone so I opted for Paris, but everyone really enjoyed this tea.
