From Golden Tips Teas

Our classic breakfast tea is a rich combination of strong, full-bodied and robust teas handpicked from the finest estates of Assam and goes perfectly with a dash of milk and sugar. English Breakfast is among the most popular tea blends in the world. Popularized by the Queen Victoria of England, it is traditionally paired with a hearty English breakfast. Assam is known to produce some of the finest rich bodied black teas and this 100% Assam origin blend demonstrates the notion perfectly. The tea is characteristic of dark black leaves with sprinkles of golden tips. The liquor is bright reddish and offers a delightful woody aroma with hints of chocolate. The flavor is rich, full-bodied and offers suggestions of caramel and cocoa with an exquisite malty background combined with balanced sweetness on the finish. The strength of the brew is exhilarating and energizing. An excellent morning cuppa.

This is a not too strong english breakfast. I have tasted the twinnings (sachets) and this one and this is softer than the twinnings one.

It’s malty, with some bitter and sweet after taste.

I only give a 80 rating because I was expecting something stronger of an english breakfast.

The website says this is an assam blend, which is interesting, because I would have guessed that there was some darjeeling in there as well. The dry leaf has a really lovely aroma, all floral and woodsy. By contrast, the aroma of the brewed tea is pretty mild. I find this to be a fairly smooth, slightly sweet tea, with malt and floral and grape skin notes – it definitely has that “Indian black tea” character. There is a touch of astringency in the finish, not unpleasant, just a slight drying in the back of the throat. I didn’t feel particularly inclined to add milk to this, which I found a bit surprising for a breakfast blend. Nice to drink, but not overly interesting.

Edited to say: I tried it cold-brewed overnight, and that brought out some surprising fruity notes! It was fairly light, not very malty. Are we sure this is an Assam blend?? :)
