Good but not great. I drink it for the sake of a hot drink and that’s about it.

Like others, I didn’t have high hopes for this tea, but I was pleasantly surprised. You only need to steep for one or two minutes (don’t go over even though it’s a black tea), and I don’t think I could take this without sugar, but it’s very flavorful. Just a basic everyday black tea. I do find it a little too astringent, though.

A pretty okay standard black tea. Nothing fancy!

The plain black tea was a little too bitter for me. I added in vanilla creamer and it was much smoother and enjoyable. A little honey would probably have tasted good too.

Decent with milk and sugar – I enjoyed it just about as much as Lipton. Nothing special, nothing I’d go out of my way to buy, but I’ll drink the other teabag I have.

To paraphrase someone else’s review about this: Nothing special, but functional. I can’t imagine choosing this over another name-brand of English Breakfast, but it’s good in a pinch in a hotel room or waiting room where it is all they have. I usually bring any bags I pick up at a hotel home with me, just in case I there’s ever an… um… tea-mergency. ;)

Not bad. Just not great.

It was really good. A bit of a stronger tea than I’m use to, but I added some milk to make it more drinkable for me. I will continue drinking this tea that’s for sure!

I am surprised by this. liberTEAS said it best- it’s very ‘malty’, bold… and it just gives you a wonderfully smooth taste. I wouldn’t drink this without a bit of sugar personally, and I’m not one to normally add sugar.
