I am very fond of this tea. It’s my favourite un-flavoured black tea for milkless consumption. I think I may have tasted it with milk once, but it’s not really strong enough for that in my opinion (the colour is off; makes it look like ditch water a bit). But just on its own, it’s absolutely wonderful. At first I had a hard time believing it wasn’t flavoured, the aroma and the taste are just so complex and lovely. It makes me think of chestnuts a bit… It’s a wonderful tea to have with something sweet on the side, especially pound cake. Very good with pound cake :) It’s not at all bitter, but I do like steeping it for only 2 or 2.5 minutes, it doesn’t seem to need more.
