Since my husband had claims to the final steep of the English Breakfast we had been working on this morning, I decided to give this a try. I was pleasantly surprised, after reading some of the other reviews I was afraid that I would have a bitter, tasteless cup. I steeped this for a low time at a medium temp and found it very good. I definately pick up a malty quality that sort of reminds me of coffee, however, the claims of caramel and dark cherry are crazy…did not get either one of those. Overall, this is decent for a tea bag, in fact my favorite tea bag so far. When I run out of my loose leaf English Breakfast I may have to pick up a box of this until I can get an online order.

I should try this one day. Last time I tried this as a tea latte at starbucks and it was virtually tasteless, but that was probably because they never steeped it for enough time before pouring in too much milk compared to the amount of tea.
Malty quality that reminds one of coffee… I used to be a coffee drinker, so maybe I’ll like it!

I am a coffee drinker also (although lately I have been just a tea drinker…) and I thought this was pretty good. Make sure to drink it hot though, as it cools it seems to lose taste.

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
