This is an amazingly smooth black tea: it has no bitter taste or aftertaste at all, and with one lump of sugar is sweet without being heavy. Even when I accidentally oversteep — for example, I left the leaves in for almost a quarter of an hour this morning from a combination of natural forgetfulness and pre-caffeination — this tea does not retaliate. It’s an excellent first cup of tea for the day.

The website for this tea — or what I presume is this tea, as I have an older gift tin in a decidedly different color scheme — informs me that I may have to order this tea directly from London once I finish this tin, which is sad news indeed for an American.

I like tea!

Since joining Steepster, it’s become apparent that this statement desperately needs further refinement.
