Well, I want to begin by saying that I am of Indian origin and have been around tea my entire life- never really a fan though. Recently I discovered some sleep issues of mine were related to the caffiene in coffee and instantly I switched to tea. On a whim I picked up this tea from the Home Goods store and brought it back to the office. I was a bit excited because I had never had Assam tea blended with Kenya tea and wanted to see what it would taste like. Let me tell you- the simplicity of the tea is what makes it amazing. It’s not overly brisk,overly dark, or even bitter. It’s great for a beginner tea aficianado. I put two table spoons of half and half because I wanted a creamy texture and added some splenda as well. This is a great tea to have as a go-to. You can never over-steep and you will always get good flavor. I highly recommend this blend.
