2nd Review Revolution Breakfast Tea (Boston Tea Party Blend) by Metropolitan Tea Company
When first trying this cup of tea I thought to try and have it like bubble tea; well to add milk to it. So, not giving up on this tea, I have decided to start again with a fresh cup of tea with milk and sugar added to it and cooked real hot (boiling).
I took one tea bag (has no strings on bag, instead they are grouped as two bags with tearing-folds); anyhow, having placed the tea bag in my cup I added one teaspoon of sugar and took a small thin of condensed milk and add some of the milk to my cup, I stirred this in while the wonder comes to a full boil. I then take some of the water in another cup and pour this into my cup (with the milk and sugar) and stir the mixture as I am pouring the water.
I like the color, which is a lovely golden color, and with the added milk it smells creamy and sweeter. So far so good I am thinking. I leave the tea alone with covering on for a bit longer.
When I finally decided to have this tea, I sipped it slowly at first to take in its strength (the mixture of sugar with the condensed milk) and how they pair together. Now this tea tastes just rightly so and very hot. With the adding of milk to the tea there is not that after taste feeling that I got from the earlier cup I had prepared. Tea is not too sweet either, it all seems just right.
I can see boiling this tea on the stove with condensed or evaporated milk, sugar and several tea bags and leaving them all to mingle and come to full boil…making for my version of bubble milk tea.
I realized with this Revolutionary Breakfast Tea it is best for this reviewer to have it with milk (condensed-evaporated milk) and raw sugar.
I like the malt that is to be found in this cup of tea, and that it is full bodied. What perhaps I did not like is the floral aspect combined with the malt, which to me gives it an off taste. And I am not sure what ‘oakiness’ is, so I cannot account for this description.
Overall, this tea does brew a bright golden cup and is best served with milk/cream/evaporated milk and raw sugar (pure cane sugar).
This tea was purchased while visiting Heath’s Tea Room in Rockport, MA and I am happy to have tried this tea. Thank you to Kimberlie and Michael.
