I usually type these reviews as I am steeping and tasting unless marked backlogging. I am steeping right now this cup of English Breakfast. I am somewhat amazed that there are 6 tastes but only 1 comment with feedback. Anyhow…on to my 2 cents worth…While steeping I find this to smell a little different from other English Breakfast Teas I have tried before. It’s more of a Woody smell than I expected. The color is a tad lighter in color than some black teas…but still noticeably black tea. After steeping it’s a pale black tea smell. The taste is a bit more mellow than I was anticipating. It’s ok. I will probably oversteep next time. It has a slight smoky flavor but more sweet towards the end of the sip.
