I feel so accomplished when I correctly guess which teas are in a blend! I knew there was Keemun in this one from the scent of the dry leaf, and the smell of the brewed tea has that honey note you get from Assam sometimes and the pure “black tea” flavor I get from Ceylon.
This isn’t quite smooth enough to drink plain, but it makes a very full-flavored classic English Breakfast with a bit of milk (sugar would go well too, I’m sure). I like it, but I think I’ve been spoiled by the complexity of my recent morning staple, Rishi’s China Breakfast. This is a more straightforward black tea blend, but nice and strong.
This is another from the SororiTEA Sisters’ Prize Package! Thanks ladies! You should see the little tins they came in, too _
