Part of the British Tea Sampler from Upton. I was wary of this tea and would not have ordered it on its own, had it not been part of the set. I’m so pleased it was included, because I think it may turn into a close race between this and PG Tips as my favorite tea.

In the tin: no extraordinary notes stood out, slightly smokey, black tea.

Brewed: Again, smells and looks like a standard, plain black tea. Tasting it however, Wow! This is really good. I progressively added sugar, and ended up with more sugar in the cup than I normally add to any black tea, but I like a strong, sweet tea.

This makes a terrific all day tea.

I prefer good old fashioned black tea, without a lot of frou-frou flavorings.
