A well blended robust, deep, rich flavor which is ideal for my busy morning of doing house chores. I would sip and clean; and return to sip some more. I am thinking this London Cuppa is sort of like English Breakfast tea is what comes to mind.
Freshness is maintained as claimed once packed.
This is a blend of Assam and Kenyan teas which come in a round tea bag, but don’t let this fool you into believing that they will taste like Tetley’s (no offence to the Tetley drinkers, I once heavily enjoyed their green tea!). This tea really surprised me. When I drank the Yorkshire Tea from ToH, I remember saying that it was the smoothest I have drank. Well London Cuppa resepctfully disagrees with that statement. Not only is it velvety, it is also slightly creamier than other teas I have drank. I have to try it without sugar next time, but I think I’m sensing some notes of honey, and that might be part of what makes this tea so full bodied and rich in texture. Also it has less of that wood/straw characteristic that the Yorkshire Tea has, but has a slight touch of briskness to it.
For some reason this tea and I did not get along today! Perhaps it was because it was in the presence of such masterful teas as Golden Monkey and Hao Ya A. This is made DAILY at my house by one of my daughters, but I almost never drink it. I have seen it referred to as a premium tea in a review on a certain website that sells everything under the sun, but it isn’t premium in the way that Harnye’s Golden Monkey is premium.
I hadn’t had this one in a long time, but my middle daughter swears she can’t get through Algebra without it. She makes a pot every morning, and since I gave them a snow day today (first one ever, homeschool mommies are brutal but we know they have to make it up on a beautiful spring day!) we decided to all share teas. I had a small cup of this. It is similar in some ways to Harney and Sons Supreme Breakfast. The assam is distinctive in there, and the Kenya is decent. Not a bad cuppa! This was bagged as we have been unable to find loose lately.
Thanks Ruth!!! :)
This doesn’t have a scent but I really must point out that it steeps/infuses VERY quickly but it also is very forgiving. I think I infused for about 6 minutes. It has a nice flat Medium Strength Black Tea taste. No aftertaste. A great go-to or stand-by cuppa!
Soooooo glad I got to try this!!! :)
This is not a bad tea. This is one of the first loose leaf teas I bought since we don’t have any real tea shops around here. I bought mine at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. As a first loose leaf tea, I really liked it. It is a good morning cup, not exactly full of nuance but serviceable. My 16 year old has to have a 22 oz. pot by her side to do her algebra each morning and prefers this one to my more expensive, more complex teas. It comes in tea bags, too, but we prefer the loose leaf. It is a small particle size, so don’t steep it too long!
