Simply one of my favorite black teas, and the go to tea for all occasions. I also use it as a base for blends with tart fruits (like blood orange) with great results.

Not the best Assam I have had, but good. A bit overpriced. Good strong breakfast tea. As with all Assams, I enjoy it with milk and sugar.

I particularly like the honey color of this tea. It beats Lipton for iced tea!

I bought this not knowing what to expect when making a Teavana order, just trying to reach the level for free shipping. I saw it and the price wasn’t outrageous, so I tossed it in.

This is my new favorite tea among teas that “taste like tea.” (As opposed to flavored teas like rose, or jasmines, or even oolongs which have such a different flavor profile.) Malty and unbelievably SMOOOOOOTH. I had no idea assam could taste this good.

I wrote a bit more on it in my overview of recent teas I liked that “taste like tea” at my teablog: http://teawritings.com/?p=127

I ended up having to get this tea when my local Teavana store was out of English Breakfast. I have to say, it is my favorite tea hands down now. I like a little sugar in mine and definitely drink it hot. I did try it iced once and..no not good. I found it to be very time sensitive, so don’t over steep it.

Interesting flavor with a little too much tannin bitterness. I tend to over compensate with sugar. It’s still a good overall afternoon tea.
