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.
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.
I put a packet of this tea in my backpack this morning on the way out. While grabbing lunch I remembered I had it and asked the waiter to bring me a cup of hot water instead of my usual fresh lemonade. He looked at me like I was an idiot but understood later when I popped the teabag into the mug. It was nice. I’m not sure how long I let it steep since I left the bag floating around in the mug but that still didn’t give it enough flavor. I tried it before adding sugar and it had a surprisingly sweet taste. I think it’s a fine tea, it has an earthy quality I enjoyed. I might have to warm up to this flavor, though. I’ll give it a try later on this week and let you know how I like it.
