Despite being quite sweet and smooth, I was actually a bit disappointed by this tea, and find its English sibling to be preferable. It tastes like a mildly better quality version of a fairly standard black tea, very simple and understated. Which is not to say simple is undesirable, but in order to make me buy a basic blend like this again, it should be notable in some way — let’s just say I prefer Purcell’s “Fantasy for 3 viols in D minor, Z. 732” to Debussy’s “Clair de Lune”?
Our French Breakfast is an estate loose leaf tea from the high mountain region of Ceylon. With its long, wiry leaves, it produces a smooth amber cup.
This exquisite black tea has a subtle, honey-like flavor, making it perfect for breakfast or with a sweet afternoon pastry.
