The London Cuppa

Recent Tasting Notes

I haven’t had that much experience with black tea so this was quite strong for me. However, I really enjoyed it after adding some milk and a bit of sugar.

I enjoy this tea very much. It is simple and delicious on its own or with honey.

I love this tea! It’s a great tasting black tea meant for any time drinking. I brewed it rather strong & it was fine. I even left it sitting on the teawarmer with the teabags still in the pot & it didn’t get bitter. It only got better.

Definitely a great tea to keep on hand for when you are in a hurry & don’t feel like measuring out tea leaves or cleaning up a mess.

I always turn to this tea when needing to be a bit firmer in the spirit. Mine is so low. unfortunately this cup did not do it.

Nothing wrong with the cuppa but the tea drinker. It is all that it claims to be:
robust, deep, rich flavor which is ideal to enjoy all day, everyday. Once blended, it’s packed to maintain freshness.

I am just giving up; no need to other wise.

I continue to enjoy this tea just about every other day and I can almost see the end of this wonderfully vibrant and full of vigor tea. Well not so much vigor as drinking it whilst doing house chores. Anyhow, it is nearly done with a few bags remaining. What am i going to do…i must try and visit British Delights soon to re-stock. It is a wish for wishful thinking/talking to myself.

Remember, those favoring Darjeeling, Assam or those Breakfast teas, do give this a try; it is a worthy contender.

I find myself always returning to The London Cuppa, if not having green tea. It is quite a contrast because it has none of that leafy astringent taste as offered by some green teas.

This is robust, smoky in flavor, the nose perks noting a different texture, richness even in the cup making for fitness in the daily activities abound or do I mean needing to get done.

Yes, The London Cuppa is my cup of contrast when deviating from those of leafy, medicinal notes. A bit harsh in the phrasing? Maybe.

This is my other back up cup of tea when not drinking Green tea. I like the robustness contrast the London Cuppa offers. I still have no Earl Grey or English Breakfast or Irish Teas so this is a good replacement for them.

As much as I drink, I find the box is still full of round tea bags. Thank you British Delights for carrying this tea.

Always seeming to return to this London Cuppa when wanting something for breakfast but not English or Irish Breakfast cup of tea. I am out of those.

The notes in the cuppa erases the gaps. It is smoky in flavor and a full bodied robust brew helping me with my daily activities which at times are inactive and the freshness in the cup reminds me to get moving, get it done even.

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.

Enjoying my Cuppa along with my daily green drink; in that I alternate between the two teas. I drink the Cuppa and think of English Breakfast or Earl Grey even; but I could be mistaken. Tasting buds not as prime as professional tasters.

I like the Cuppa that is all.

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.

This is just about the only tea my middle daughter will drink and she has a pot every school day while she does her Algebra lesson. We used to be able to find it loose leaf, but haven’t seen it that way in a long time.

ashmanra//I can understand why she would not feel the need for any other tea, because this one is so good! I have seen it in loose leaf form where I purchased mine, but I just got the tea bags because I imagined there wouldn’t be a noticable difference.

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.

I have yet to make a bad cup of this tea. Tasty with a splash of milk, this is my latest go-to tea. I am breezing through the box of 80 teabags

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!!! :)

In agreement with description “A great go-to or stand-by cuppa!”. Kudos.

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!

I love this one—I ALWAYS keep this on hand, and often start the morning with it.

This is what I call one of my “everyday teas”. A perfect morning blend; a very robust tea with lots of body, that takes well to milk. It is a smooth tasting blend of Assam and Kenya teas in convenient round teabags.
