Martin got around to reviewing this tea before I did – and I completely agree with his note. This is an okay tea but nothing special, and definitely reminiscent of an English Breakfast blend.
It’s smooth, pleasant and bright, although I found that the tannin notes and malt are dominating the aroma more than the flavour. But then, I only brewed for 3 minutes to drink it without milk.
I also found some bitterness on the back of my tongue at the end of each sip. It’s subtle though and doesn’t detract from the overall experience.
Taking pictures for the blog in winter is hard. I’m out of fresh flowers from the garden, so I made do with a little fox pot plant and matching face mask: https://www.immortalwordsmith.co.uk/mlesna-kandy-tea-review/
