This was a nice cup with breakfast. I really wanted a latte, and since this is my only teabag of this Indian black tea, I thought I might accomplish a sipdown as well.

This tea is strong, I found 1 minute in 450 mL hot water enough, and that was with milk already added. If you don’t oversteep, you will have a pleasant cup of bold, flavourful black tea. Notes of cream, nuts, and dry wood. It would easily do 2-3 more resteeps, and it expands in the sachet sightly. I don’t drink a lot of Indian blacks, but this reminds me of when I was a kid and would have Red Rose orange pekoe with milk at my grandmother’s, except this tea is definitely much higher grade. This is just a nice, smooth black tea, nothing fancy (and I enjoy its simplicity).

Flavors: Cream, Malt, Nuts, Tannic, Wood
