From Murchie's Tea & Coffee

Blended and named for the Governor General’s official residence in Ottawa, this tea is served at all the residence’s special occasions and is sold in the gift shop.

A superb blend of Kenilworth tea from Sri Lanka combined with Darjeeling from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, rich Assam from Northern India and full-bodied Yunnan from the genesis of tea in China. A sweet dessert-wine fragrance completes the experience.

I’m drinking the teabag version of this blend (many of Murchie’s black tea blends are available in both bagged and loose leaf form). I steeped it for three minutes which seems to work well given that I’m taking it plain. It could probably be drunk with milk as well though. The tea has a distinctly tannic flavour but it avoids being too astringent or bitter. In flavour I’d say that it’s mostly like a Ceylon with a hint of Darjeeling, but there’s undertone of Yunnan black tea notes as well – it comes across as a slightly leathery, almost tobacco-like flavour (the crappy Yunnans will taste like cigarettes – thankfully this one does not). In terms of strength it fall somewhere towards the middle of the road – it has body but it’s light enough that it doesn’t need milk to be drinkable.
