We’d been striking out with the teas in this order—till now. This one both my aunt and I liked. The description on the package calls this a “classic British cup o’ tea” and it does feel like a very basic cup of tea, even if not quite comparable to the types of blacks I’ve tried. It’s not reminiscent of Assam or Darjeeling certainly, not quite as characterful as Hunan Black or Black Bud, and taste more robust than a Ceylon—more as the package describes, “woodsy/nutty” than the bright citrusy note of those teas. I very much enjoyed this one, even if I wouldn’t quite put it at the tippy top of my favorite blacks.
Flavors: Nutty, Wood
