I needed a strong tea this morning and tea doesn’t get much stronger than this. 3.1g of Kenyan tea in a hemp bag with no string steeped for 2 minutes. Steep any longer and the spoon will stand up in the cup. Lifeboat has to be one of my favorite teas. I buy it when I find it as its a British tea and very hard to find. I’m sitting here thinking why do I like this tea so much. Its very brisk and does have some astringency. Its not bitter and has a wonderful taste. It will wake you in the morning as it is as strong as coffee. I’ve tried most of the English teas and I prefer this one. The tea uses no pesticides and is Fair trade. All this and it supports the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
I have been so busy lately with 3 granddaughters playing sports. I had to get in a tasting note this morning. This is a great breakfast tea. This tea is brisk and robust while being tasty and only slightly astringent. A very nice tea. This tea also supports the RLNI which is a very good cause.
After I figured out that Twinings Irish Breakfast tasted better with a 2 minute steep, I decided to do the same with Lifeboat tea this morning. This is my second cup and even though it is a tea bag, it tastes wonderful. The tea is brisk and robust without the bitterness or too much astringency. I know that the tea in the bag is more than likely fannings, but if you use quality tea you get quality fannings. This is a very good tea as long as you don’t over steep it.
This tea really surprised me. It brews up very amber in color and is very brisk and robust. The tea is not as strong as PG Tips and I was able to drink it w/o milk or sugar. It has a very clean taste for a Kenyan tea, no bitterness at all. The tea comes in hemp tea bags w/o strings and isn’t even flo-thru. I found this tea at a Christmas Tree Shop in Maine and it was very inexpensive. The date on the tea was 2012, so I bought it. A very nice breakfast tea.
