Fantastic tea for the afternoon, after dinner desert tea or as a kickstart first thing in the morn. Loads of body with a great natural sweetness. Strong flavours of malt, sugarcane, caramel and molasses. Fairly forgiving if oversteeped. Overall a very strong but smooth tea. Easily my favourite black tea at the moment.

I have had this tea lying around for a little while so it may not have been at it’s peak. Having said that, I loved it. The first infusion was quite subtle but it was the following infusions where this tea came into it’s own The second and third infusion displayed hints of spice and a pronounced fruitiness. The absolute standout was the body of this tea (although thickness seems more appropriate). By the fifth infusion it was a little spent. Most surprising is that it was a big hit with my eleven and thirteen year old boys too!
