This box o’tea was 1 pound 49 pence at Tesco in England for 125 grams of tea. What made me smile is that I was expecting tea leaves, because the word leaf was in the name. aaaaahahaahahahaaaaaaaaaaa! This stuff is smaller that ctc. It truly looks like coffee grounds when you’re done with it. BUT, with that said, it isn’t bad. It’s a bit malty, a bit better than the “80 bags a box” tea blends in England and takes milk and sugar well. Even though this is almost powder, I think it could take the full 5 minutes steep without bitterness, as I chickened out at 3 minutes due to the size of the leaf. A nice souvenir from England for the non-tea fanatic? Yes. Something extraordinary? Nah. But I’m not throwing it away or giving it away, so that’ll tell you it ain’t that bad!
Its what it says on the box a blend of Assam/Ceylon and African Teas.I’d say it’s mellow and the colour is a deep gold. Taste – nothing to write home about. An every day tea for drinking all day while you wish you’d bought a packet of Ringtons classic 1907 blend instead.
