I should preface my note on this by saying that there is a fair amount of disagreement over this tea in my household. In my opinion, it’s absolutely wonderful. However, others have found it to be overly strong and bitter. So, it is not a tea for everyone.
That said, it brews a strong, rich black tea. It can, I suppose, be a little on the bitter side (don’t leave the tea bags or strainer sitting in the pot all afternoon), but I drink it with milk and sugar and find the taste to be quite nice. It’s particularly pleasant on cold rainy days – it certainly warms you right up.
