This tea is a gift from a friend of mine. She bought it at the Picadilly store when she visited London.
I took all the caution for the preparation and as I read on tin (in very small characters) that it was a strong tea, I decided not steeping it too long.
Good idea, because it is really a strong tea ! Waouh it’s a real breakfast tea : it sounds the bugle to ensure you are awake.
The palate is heavily malted with a light bitterness after taste. No doubt it’s robust as assam can be.
I had it plain with sugar and I liked it but I’d like to try with a cloud of milk next time.
