Upon opening the tin, my first impression is that it’s bagged tea… unbagged. The leaves are very tiny and uniformly cut. The smell is pale, but if I stick my nose into the tin I get notes of a standard English Breakfast.
Trying it plain before I add anything to it, I find that it’s very strong. It’s malty and a bit astringent. Adding milk smooths it out. It’s decent. It’s nothing special, but it’s a good English Breakfast.
