This is a pretty ordinary tea but sometimes that’s just what you want. Comforting and reminds me of the tea my dad used to make us with our breakfast when we were kids. Brews up nice and dark, a little malty and a little sweet, and takes milk well. Doesn’t really need sugar unless you totally overbrew it. I use this as a base for the black teas that I blend up for my etsy shop, and keep a supply of this on hand, plain, to serve to my folks who are not renowned for being adventurous tea drinkers. Surprisingly refreshing in the hot weather.
