This is my favorite basic black tea. I use it for morning breakfast w/ milk, sun tea with herbs, and anytime I need to add a black tea to a drink. Being from the South (US) and having grown up on Lipton and Luzianne, I get flak for drinking a commercial English black tea. However, it is superior in many ways. It makes great sun, iced, or hot tea. There is no other basic black tea like it.
