My #1 pick. I’ve experimented with all different preparation methods and have enjoyed them all.

I am a huge fan of this tea! It has a hint of black tea taste but it is very bold. If you are looking for a tea to replace coffee, this one is a strong contender. If you aren’t a fan of strong teas, you should lower the steeping time or cut it with something.
found this in a specialty tea shop in Pennsylvania and gave it a go…used coconut creamer and added some sugar (a little less for the 2nd steeping) for the first 2 steepings and it was excellent as a morning tea…tried a third steeping to see how it would taste and tasted before adding anything and it gave a nice sugarless/creamerless brew…really love it!
my first steepster tasting note. after more than a decade of marriage and bagged twinings EB by the cup, i am branching out and it turns out that with tea, i really am easy to please. cannot claim a favorite tea blend just yet, but i am convinced this will remain high on my list. the flavors in this tea are elusive; or i am just not very discerning. in any event, my first cup this morning was just about perfect and the second cup, still steeping in the pot was also pretty good. yes, there is an aftertaste with this tea, but that flavor is what keeps me reaching for my cup. there was a less flavorful aftertaste with the third cup, but you would be less so too after 30 minutes in boiling water. this is probably important: i always drink with whole milk and 2 spoons of sugar and i also keep my steeping teapot covered while drinking.
