From Luhse Tea

A.B.T. – AMERICAN BREAKFAST TEA

STORY:
As many Americas did, Boxer’s family immigrated from the Emerald Isle, home to one of the greatest tea drinking populations in the world! Breakfast teas are a staple in Irish, English, and Scottish homes. Boxer wanted to keep this tradition alive, but being a stereotypical American, he personalized it. Owning his own milk company, Boxer needed a tea to withstand the weight of added dairy and sweeteners. If you like it straight black, this strong brew stands perfectly on it’s own too.
TEA DESCRIPTION:
The American Breakfast Tea. This robust brew gets you out of your cot, propelling you through the trenches of the day. Soldier on!

First cup of the day, and the first of my Luhse black tea samples. This one is presumably a blend, although the pouch doesn’t specify exactly which types of black tea have been used. Most of the leaves are fairly small and a uniform black, but there are also some thicker, larger, twistier black leaves, and a few golden, downy leaves. The scent of the dry leaf is sweet and mildly malty. I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 3.5 minutes in boiling water. The resulting liquor is a fairly dark golden brown, and I added a splash of milk.

To taste, the initial flavour is sweetly malty and fairly bland. I’m picking up some mildly floral, orchid-like notes in the mid sip, and a mild metallic tang that makes me fairly sure there’s some Darjeeling in here somewhere. There’s the tiniest hint of baked bread at the end of the sip. Based on the maltiness alone, I’m pretty sure there’s also Assam in this blend, and maybe a touch of Dian Hong. I’m just guessing really, though, and being guided by both the appearance of the tea and what I can taste. I like how smooth this one is – almost silky.

All in all, I’m pretty happy with this breakfast blend. It’s not hugely unique, but it makes a flavourful cup that’s not too overpowering. Great first thing, for a pleasant, gentle wake up.
