This is defiantly a morning tea. I know it gets a bad rep for being harsh and slightly bitter, but this tea is a great alternative for people who don’t want to drink coffee in the morning.
I recommend drinking it with evaporated milk and sugar. It gives it a creamy texture that you don’t get with 2% milk and makes the flavour softer. I really like it when I’m on the go and don’t have time for breakfast.
Sharp, bitter, and thoroughly decent. I wasn’t able to pick out any fancy caramel, malt, or cherry flavors through the astringency, but maybe others have more luck. I don’t find that milk or sugar make a lot of difference in the drinking experience, so I’ll take it with or without.
It’s a step below a good English or Irish Breakfast, that’s for sure. But it’s drinkable. I keep a box at work with me because it’s one that I don’t mind sharing.
I think this tea has a lot of potential if treated right. You have to find the perfect steep time because this one is not forgiving if accidentally steeped too long, it becomes very very bitter.
Overall I really enjoy this tea in the morning before class, a quick caffeine boost to start the day.
Definitely wakes you up, but maybe not for the right reasons! I usually love black teas, even when there’s some bitterness, but there doesn’t seem to be too much to this flavor other than the bitterness. The tea has a nice smell to it that doesn’t come through in the actual taste, and the aftertaste is a bit rough.
At least it’s caffeinated so I’ll be awake for my classes…
