This does not feel complex enough, given the blend of black teas. It is quite smooth, with various levels of tastes and textures, but not broad enough. Maybe it needed another minute to steep.
It isn’t as strong as I would have hoped this breakfast blend would be, as most English Breakfast teas tend to require milk for their bite.
It is also surprisingly pale, with a soft bitter after taste, which I can’t help but contemplate the quality of leaves in this blend.
Nonetheless, taken straight and black, it awakened me from a potentially cold/flu filled morning, and that is satisfactory enough.
