2 Tasting Notes


Really lovely colour and smell. It dries my mouth out a little, but that didn’t stop me stockpiling the stuff last year, when it was a bit more of a rarity in the supermarket.

I bought a box of the bagged version of this tea (50 teabags) last year- before discovering I hated it. I would not recommend drinking it black – although, I may be biased, preferring most black teas with milk – it just tastes bitter and a bit nasty to me without (perhaps my fault?). I can’t really distinguish any of the individual flavours – just a vague hint of mixed spices. Saying that, it is still pleasant to drink, if I manage to offset the bitterness with a huge amount of milk.

This tea has a very strong flavour. Try blending it with a regular black ceylon tea. The ratios, my preference is two spoon of black ceylon, and a one spoon of whittard s.i. It will give you a much smooth taste, and I think you will no longer have bitter taste. Enjoy your tea!
