I’ve not had much experience with breakfast blends or straight blacks, but I really like this one so far. It’s a full bodied tea with a malty bite to it. I assume that’s due to the different types of tea in there. I feel there is some thing a bit sweet hanging around the edges. There is a bit of astringency at the end but not bad.

I typically don’t use milk in my tea, just a bit of sugar in the raw. This one is smooth enough I don’t feel like I need to add milk or creamer. I could see this as an afternoon tea or breakfast tea. Although waking up might call for some thing a bit more aggressive some days.

So tonight as I sit down to watch some Archer, I’ll be trying out a mix of black teas in Windsor Castle. Now I won’t be the best for a technical review here. My main bread and butter at this point is still black tea blends. As such, I don’t really have the experience with individual blacks to pick apart where the different flavors are residing. What I can tell you is that I really enjoy this. This may supplant English Breakfast as my favorite basic blend. That of course doesn’t count Irish/Scottish Breakfast blends, as they fall under “HEY BRUH, WAKE UP AND MOVE” blends. I really enjoy the way that the usual might and power of the Assam is reigned in before it’s full punch with a bit of flowery excitement from the others.

It’s black. It’s blended. It’s delightful. For the record, I drank this with a bit of milk and sugar, and have really enjoyed it.
