I wasn’t sure how different this was going to be from Scottish Teatime. After all, it’s the same kind of CTC blend, should be the same flavor profile, same company…
Comparing the two, they ARE rather similar, but there are some notable differences. This one is a little more bitter, covering up that tannic, autumn leaf pile a bit more. On the bright side, this is almost completely lacking in astringency.
And believe me, after drinking Scottish Teatime and sitting through a 2 hour meeting with no water, I am all for no astringency.
