Either my tastes have changed or the blend has changed (I read a review from a month ago that said this tea is purely African sourced now) but I don’t remember this tea being so blah.

I brewed it up pretty strong with 1.5 teaspoons for about 10-12 ounces of water. I did add milk and sugar, though not much of either, because I generally do with plain black teas. My palate isn’t discriminatory enough to cut out the bitterness I get from blacks without sugar at least.

Anyway back to this tea, I don’t get much tasting notes at all when I drink it. It causes a little bit of dryness at the back of my throat after I think it and there’s some slight malty flavour to it, but all in all it’s a very boring tea. Guess I’ll keep looking for an English Breakfast I like, one with a bit more character to it.

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
