drank Imperial Breakfast by t Leaf T
220 tasting notes

Normally its quite exciting when I get to try teas before they hit the shelves, but I can’t say I was impressed by this blend. With a name like “Imperial Breakfast” I was dreaming up a fantastic smokey Chinese blend, something to really knock my socks off. Unfortunately my socks stayed firmly on my feet. Don’t get me wrong, its a “nice” tea – but when you combine two fairly bland teas (Golden Monkey & Mangalam assam) the result is yet another fairly bland tea. Light bodied with a hint of malt, drink this one plain and keep your socks on.
