Good tea. Half way (balanced) between strong English Breakfast and Earl Grey. Not as tanic as the English Breakfast, not as aromatic and citrusy as the Earl Grey.
Indeed for breakfast; I don’t like it with milk. It doesn’t need it. Very appropiate to drink in the russian way, very strong and adding hot water along the way. My wife likes it very, very strong and loaded with sugar.
Many TWG’s teas are gimicky, but this one isn’t. It is indeed a breakfast tea with a recognisable Russian flair.

It is difficult to find the mango advertised. Instead, it smells and tastes like peaches.

Very similar candy-like tea as other offers from TWG (Wedding party, Tea Party, etc). This one is more direct to the fruit (peach/apple) and less balanced. I didn’t like its light body but that makes it good for some contexts. It is an enjoyable infusion to share in a light and playuful mood.

Flavors: Almond, Green Apple, Mud, Peach
