Thank you adagio breeze for this! Not really sure how to rate this one. This is a basic bagged CTC black tea. It is bitter, so it needs milk and sugar. It brews a dark brown color. There is no one definite black tea base that I can detect. It has a slight malty taste to it. I am still limiting myself to one cup of tea per day as I am breastfeeding. This one is convenient just because it is bagged.
