I’m really enjoying this tea. I seem to get the brewing wrong with a lot of breakfast teas, but every time, this tea seems to be good. I drink it with a small amount of milk and like lots of colour in it, but not so much that it turns an orange colour. Some black teas with whole leaves never quite get the strength you’d like, whereas others are prone to getting too strong too quickly, like a PG Tips teabag. This gets the balance, and I don’t end up with too much dust in the bottom of my cup, even with a cup infuser.
I still prefer the rounded flavour of an Irish Breakfast over an English Breakfast, but this isn’t far off.
Edit The amount of tea information below is showing 1 tsp per cup, but I actually use 1.5. I haven’t tried it with less than that, so I don’t know whether it would be right…

I’m a little disappointed with this one. The dry leaf smelled wonderful, like juicy fruits, but the resulting brew is very light on flavor. I’m not really sure what happened.

Second Steep
8 ounces water + 200 degrees + 10 minutes

The color is darker with this cup and the flavor is much better, though slightly astringent.

Flavors: Astringent, Fruity

I picked this tea out last night to bring to work and I’m glad I did. It’s really great for breakfast.

Side note: I just bought a new Moleskin calendar and I’m in love! I want one of everything they have, I swear.

Second Steep
8 ounces water + 200 degrees + 11 minutes

It’s good this second time around but still a little light.

I drank my first cup of this so fast that I didn’t really stop to take notes. I’m about to do a second cup so I will try to pay more attention. I can say that the tea liquid was dark but not too bold or too sweet. I caught the scent of tobacco from the leaves after steeping. It doesn’t seem as well-rounded as other black teas I’ve had, but it was obviously good since I drank it so quickly. I’ve been drinking a lot of herbals lately so it’s nice to be able to come back to something with some body to it.

Second Steep
8 ounces water + 195 degrees + 7 minutes

The color of the liquid is red and looks just as the first cup did. It isn’t deep-colored but more bright. The taste hasn’t weakened at all with the second cup. The caffeine content certainly hasn’t decreased either. Wow.

Flavors: Tobacco

I find that my Yunnan red tea has a tobacco scent when dry and a sweet-tobacco undertone in taste. The color is a bright red. Do you usually get two steeps from this tea, and have you achieved more?
Have you had a non-flavored tea from Sri Lanka?

This is my first time to try this particular tea. The second cup was quite flavorful so I’m sure I could have gotten more steeps out of it, but time got away from me and I never got around to making a third cup.

I drink mostly flavored teas so I’m not sure that I’ve tried anything from Sri Lanka aside from this. At least, if I trust the description, I think that’s where this tea is from. I’m not familiar enough with tea yet to be able to distinguish between the different varieties or tea growing regions, but I’ve been wanting to buy several types of black teas so that I can start learning the differences between them. Are there any varieties you would recommend for someone starting out with non-flavored black teas?

teatortoise

Red teas from Yunnan are sweet and more delicate than other red teas. I would recommend one of those, if you’re looking for un-flavored tea that holds it’s own, besides pu-erh. The leaves range from black and brown, to brown and yellow and gold. They are made of buds and leaves.

Thank you! I will definitely check into the Yunnan teas.

Overall this is an okay tea.

This tea is very fine (pieces) tea; it is fairly strong and has a mild strawberry taste; so mild that I wouldn’t have noticed it if i didn’t read the label and were not looking for it.

I prefer smoother teas so I am bit biased since this seems to be a ‘harsher’ tea.

This is the best Earl Grey tea I have ever tasted. I don’t know where to buy more! Any help?

This tea is nothing special. I didn’t taste or smell even a hint of strawberry, just plain black tea.

When I first laid eyes on this gorgeous little tin, I felt compelled to purchase not only it but also all of its little brothers and sisters. Of course, the tins aren’t the only good thing about Wedgwood: this English Breakfast, taken with a splash of milk, was the perfect wake-up call.

This is a great tea, but it doesn’t have any strawberry in it. It is actually traditional Earl Grey with Marigold petals. The “wild strawberry” is the china pattern on the tin, which was made by Wedgwood. I have been trying to find it everywhere – the actual name of the tea is Earl Grey Flowers. Can anybody help? Thanks!

Bergamot and whole wild strawberry flowers add an exotic twist to traditional Earl Grey black tea.

Always in stock in my cupboard. Oh, and this delightful, flavorful blend of Darjeeling, Assam and Ceylon teas with a bergamot twist driving them home isn’t called “English Afternoon” for nothing.

Hello. Do you know where this Wedgwod tea may be purchased? We are almost out and can’t find it anywhere. Thanks.
