English Breakfast Blends are my absolute favorite type of teas.
I got a small tin of this as part of the “English Tea Blend” Sampler set Upton sells.
In the tin: This smells exactly like what an English Breakfast blend should smell like.
Brewed: This looks, smells, and tastes exactly like what an English Breakfast blend should look, smell, and taste like. Dark brown, with a “tea” smell, and slight hint of tannin.
I was distracted by my cats clamoring for attention, so I think I may have oversteeped this, but it was still really good. I’ll definitely keep track of time better on the next brew.
I added sugar and milk, since this is an EBB. An excellent rival for my beloved PG Tips as a first cuppa.
