This is the one I drink at work when I need a caffeine fix. Still trying to get over drinking coffee too much, so this helps.

My dad came home from Florida with the remainder of a box of Earl Grey… and a free teabag of this. As it was not one that I currently had in my collection, I asked if I could steal it. He said yes, and so here I am, trying a free teabag of plain, black tea.
I’m actually thinking that the best way to have this may be steeped strong and with milk and sugar, which varies greatly from the recommended 2 minute steep (probably meant to be clear). I brewed it at 3.5 minutes, and… I’m really not seeing anything special with this. I want something stronger, richer, and more flavourful.
Glad I tried it, at least.
Like others, I didn’t have high hopes for this tea, but I was pleasantly surprised. You only need to steep for one or two minutes (don’t go over even though it’s a black tea), and I don’t think I could take this without sugar, but it’s very flavorful. Just a basic everyday black tea. I do find it a little too astringent, though.
To paraphrase someone else’s review about this: Nothing special, but functional. I can’t imagine choosing this over another name-brand of English Breakfast, but it’s good in a pinch in a hotel room or waiting room where it is all they have. I usually bring any bags I pick up at a hotel home with me, just in case I there’s ever an… um… tea-mergency. ;)
Not bad. Just not great.
