We got the chance to use this new and beautiful, but very hot, tea pot. Charu had just returned from India with some tea (not this one, another one) and some pretty wine glasses and tea service set. We rummaged through the cupboards at MilitaJim’s parents place for tea and had some lovely english breakfast. We should have tried it with a splash of milk as well, oh well.

Post-Steep Additives: honey
It was much sweeter, and enjoyable, with some honey

Resteep: 4+ minutes, weak and watery but drinkable

I had a lot of work to get done today and this brew is bold enough to help keep me focused without making me jittery. Since it’s a black tea, I personally drink it with milk.
