Note: This review is for the bagged version.
First off, I’m not much for ‘plain’ teas. Even Irish or English Breakfast teas are rather on the plain side, and I enjoyed them better. Honestly, there’s nothing wrong with the tea; I think it’s just my taste in tea. I’m more into spicy or fruity teas rather than traditional blends. Perhaps it would be better with lemon instead of milk.
A light tea that is easy on the eyes but strong on the taste-buds. Produces a cloudy concoction. Its so-so on it’s own, but a wonderful addition to any cup of black tea. Be careful when steeping, it can become overbearing if left to steep for long periods of time!

I keep meaning to log this one.
I’ve had it a few times. It’s rather nice. Strong assam, malty. I was a little disapointed when I opened the tin to find that the tea was broken up rather small, like common Breakfast blends, but I just used my super-fine infuser. Although the smaller pieces mean more volume when I scoop, because there’s less pore space and I measure via the teaspoon because I don’t have that fine of a scale. Plus more surface area, and thus overall a stronger brew, so I tend to use a little less to compensate.
Not too outstanding, although I haven’t really sat down and sipped it with Steepster in mind, so I can’t remember too many details. I’ll do that next time.
