i have been a little hesitant to review black teas, as they are (imo) harder to compare to other tastes/experiences …but ill do my best
the leaf is cut/rolled into tiny pellets(very tiny) and has an almost absent smell… i kinda like the mildness of the scent
when steeped the water turns dark very very quickly(in my experience) possibly due to the larger side surface area of the leaves(being in tiny pieces?) i tend to cut the steep dramatically short of the prescribed 3-5 for blacks
it also provides what i consider a large amount of brews/cups(compared to other blacks)
the mouthfeel tends to be really thin… i dislike this greatly… but it is my understanding that this is usual with englishbranded teas?
the taste i don’t much care for as i prefer irish/assam type blacks more.. but the taste lines up with what i’d expect from an english breakfast
overall im impressed with the tea but alas it is just not for me
