The fourth in the “English” sampler from Upton. Richmond Park is not one I would probably have ordered on its own, had it not been in the package, but its not bad.

In the tin: Smells like black tea and old, stale campfire. I’m guessing that’s the Keemun.

Brewed: Smells like black tea, and thankfully, none of that stale campfire scent came with.

I added a healthy dose of sugar and had a very drinkable, if unremarkable, cup for lunch.

I think this could use a bit of lemon as well. I will have to pick one up next time I’m at the grocers. I rarely put lemon in (hot) tea.

I might try a very small cup of this with a bit of milk, but so far I don’t think milk is needed.
