From Maya Tea Company

A richer, more complex version of a traditional English Breakfast, we’ve blended Indian, Chinese and Ceylon Black Teas to produce an outstanding aromatic and full flavored Breakfast tea that can stand alone or be served in the traditional English manner with milk and sugar.

From the Cinco de Mayo sale from last year.  I’m trying to write some notes for the last few teas before then, if they happen to have a sale again this year (though I will be refraining from that sale this time around.)  This is a decent example of English Breakfast.  I can tell it is NOT just Ceylon, and looking up the info, I’m correct.  It still isn’t the best black tea I have ever had, but it’s a mix of Ceylon, Chinese and Indian teas.   There is a sweetness here, dried hay, and when it cools, hints of stonefruits.  The second steep gets a bit more bitey, but retains that fresh fruit quality, then maybe hazelnuts. (I notice a flavor note from another Steepsterer says “nutty”.) Worth trying for a dollar!
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 24 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 minute steep

On another note, it looks like Maya Tea is going allergen free, so they have many good blends on sale to make room for new recipes. 

Flavors: Hay, Hazelnut, Stonefruit

This tea gets overlooked and neglected until I get bored with other morning brews. Then with a nice strong steep I remember that this has a smooth nutty aftertaste that gets less astringent as it cools. I hope Maya tea has a cinco de maya sale so I can pick up more of this one.
