Not one of the better teas in the variety pack I got — it’s a standard breakfast blend, inoffensive and easy to drink even without cream and sugar. Nothing special but not unpleasant.

This is a pretty typical black breakfast tea. It didn’t really have the mild maltiness I usually associate with a breakfast blend I enjoy.
It was a smooth drink and I did enjoy it, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to pick up this blend over any other breakfast blend in a teabag.
I normally have more to say about the teas I drink, but this one just sort of tapers off at this point in the discussion.
Another trip to the sample box. I like black teas, and this is certainly a legitimately tasty tea, but I didn’t find anything unique and remarkable about it. It was kind of like many other black teas I’ve had. I added my sugar and milk, and I did enjoy the cup. I think I just anticipated more from the blend of four different kinds of black tea. I’m not disappointed with the flavor, I’m just not overly impressed. I would drink it again, but mother keeps giant boxes of regular Lipton black in the house, so what would be the point in seeking this out?
It’s black tea in a bag. Not bad, but nothing to swoon about. Definitely not my favorite from Numi. I got this bag at one of our commodity meetings…yes, they actually had a hot water dispenser and basket of Numi teas next to the coffee!
Would probably make a good iced sweet tea. But since I don’t drink sweet tea, it’s an okay cuppa for the morning.
This has become one of my favourite go-to bagged black blends. The four different types of tea are well balanced which makes the flavour well rounded and satisfying. Not the most sophisticated or interesting blend out there, but it satisfies a morning tea craving extremely well.
I am very fond of Numi Teas. I also really enjoy breakfast blends. I have to say that this was Ok. I have being drinking many teas over the last few weeks/holiday season. So, you will see a lot of logs at once, I was keeping notes. With that, I will say that I think that the best breakfast blends seem to come from places that specialize in breakfast blends. While Numi makes wonderful teas, this is not their specialty and it needs some work. Little weak and definitely is not complemented when cream and sugar is added-which is my favorite way of drinking a breakfast blend, as well I think a lot of people who drink breakfast blends. Just my opinion.
