This is only in my cupboard because the local shop was out of Clipper’s Everyday Tea, which is a staple in this house (in teabag form – wasn’t impressed with the loose leaf). I had to get something for the daughters, though I’m not drinking the Everyday much these days, and I picked this one up, having seen that the Organic Assam with Vanilla was a hit. But not so much. I can well imagine the vanilla de-puckering this one, but it’s really not very delicious without. SO astringent. I didn’t even bother getting either Becca or Cara to try, as I knew they’d hate it, but now I have quite a few bags left to get finished off somehow.

I only really like the assam with vanilla from clipper. Everything else is the type of tea which is supposed to be virtuous (health and all) but not so pleasant. Not that I have tried this though!

Hallieod

The Everyday is very good for just that, and I like their white tea with vanilla too, but there are a lot of their teas that just don’t sound very interesting to me, herbals especially. They only had Decaf in the shop yesterday and that is just pointless! I’ll try the Assam

Hallieod

… oops. Assam with vanilla, that was! If they have it locally.

I’m not sure why you’d waste single origin organic Assam on fanning grade in a paper bag, but whatever… It was alright. Surprisingly it didn’t get bitter despite getting distracted by work when I had the best of intentions to pay attention. I didn’t use boiling water though. It wasn’t what I’d call malty, but it was better than the normal bags you get in a restaurant. I’d probably take it out of the paper bag and use a cloth one or a really fine infuser. I still taste the paper a bit even though it’s unbleached.

It’s just a mild, inoffensive black tea. Stronger than Ceylon but not as strong as a truly good Assam.

I keep trying these British brands, hoping to like one enough to keep it around, but it hasn’t happened yet.
