This is my go-to tea in the morning, when I am bleary eyed and can barely get myself to the teapot, and nearly have enough coordination to get the water in the pot. Seriously, if I had to pick only one tea to drink for the rest of my life, this would be it, as it wakes me up as no other tea can. I steep it with warn milk added and a half teaspoon of raw sugar, sort of like a latte without the foam, and I find that it stands up well to long steeping times, anything under 10 and it will be okay, but probably around 7 minutes is ideal for me. I’m not so adept as describing tea flavors, but the flavor is definitely that of a good, strong black tea.

I started keeping track of all my teas here because my collection is basically out of control.
