Not sure if this is the same tea as this listing shows. The tin I have says “pure Ceylon teas packed in Sri Lanka”. Nothing about Kenyan blends. At any rate, I bought this because the tin was awesome and it was on sale. :) This tasting note is for both English Afternoon and Tea Rations. I’m positive they are the same teas.

I wasn’t expecting much from the teabags and they mainly live up to expectations. They have a mild buttery scent but I suspect that is the bags. They are the paper bags without strings like Celestial Seasonings has. The tea is a basic tea bag tea – it’s tea flavored tea. Fannings of tea that steep super quickly and the flavor is unremarkable but not horrible. It does take cream very well and that takes it from an acceptable cup to quite nice but nothing I’d keep on hand.

S’okay. I bought for the tins. :)
