My sample of White Peony Rose was very pretty to look at while it steeped, but the flavour was just all white tea. Lovely white tea, at that, but nothing came through from the petals. Brewed at 85°C for three minutes or so.

Grounded let me know that they’d recently emboldened their Bold Breakfast, so I had to give it another try…

And it’s definitely a much Bolder breakfast these days! Yum. This is full of guts, even with a heaped tsp of leaves in a mug around 12oz big. Both black and with a splash of milk, I’m a fan, and a couple of cups of this really helped with the wake-up process this morning.

Great job, Grounded!

My last cup of this sample this morning. It was a nice breakfast tea but I wasn’t overwhelmed; good while I had it but no urge to restock.

Forgot I’d run out of fresh milk prior to making this, but I did buy some almond & coconut long life milk the other day. LUXURY.

Setting your alarm for 8:30am when you start work at 9am is a bit silly. It also means you can’t go through your morning aeropress ritual. Thank gosh for gutsy breakfast teas. This one is just perfect with a splash of milk and no sugar!

I got up easily today so I didn’t have any coffee… but then by lunch time I realised I needed some caffeine pretty badly. Thanks, Bold Breakfast. You really stepped up to the plate. And with only a dash of sugar you have a bit of grunt in you today!

A lot gutsier with a higher temperature and some more leaves… but that’s probably understandable? I added too much sugar though :( wasn’t quite a teaspoon but still too much for this lady.

Today, my first tea from my first Mr. Earl box! Well technically yesterday—I loaded up the timolino with some of this too before hitting the road for the day, but today I’ve got to sit down and get a proper taste for it.

The 85°C steeping note got my curiosity up, because this tea is literally just black leaves + other black leaves + some more black leaves. I did as I was told both yesterday and today but I think with the last scoop I’ve got I’m going to try at just off boiling. I’ll admit that I steeped for longer than advised both times, 3-4mins advertised and I went for around 4-6.

I’m getting lovely black with a touch of maltiness, but not the real grunt of boldness I was expecting from such a name.
