From Rishi Tea

What makes a great “breakfast tea”? Our blending team has spent years tasting and studying black tea bush cultivars that offer a truly robust character, bright red cup color and inviting aromatics. Our English Breakfast is full-bodied, brisk and malty with a nuanced caramel sweetness. Perfectly balanced on its own or gratifying when smoothed out to your taste with milk or sugar.

I guess this is a good tea if you like English Breakfast. To me, this tea is virtually undrinkable, as it is too astringent. I guess this tea is made to be mixed with milk and other stuff. I was expecting something else. Their website suggests drinking their Chinese tea varieties, such as Yunan tea, as you can drink that as a standalone tea with no mixers necessary. Lesson learned.

Had this during a late lunch on a cold day. Pretty good for a tea bag. Not as astringent or strong as I expected. Malty and caramel.

2/2 win today for Rishi! Can’t believe I never tried their delicious teas! This was so good, it literally warmed me up from the inside out on this dreary and cold Monday. What a special treat, and didn’t need to add anything to enhance it.

Not bad, not great. Too astringent to stand on its own. Cream and sugar enhances the rest of it, and I’ve had better offerings from Rishi. I definitely got the caramel note they described it with, but that’s after two minutes. Otherwise malty, bitter sweet, woody, and astringent. Your usual English Breakfast, really, and a tad overpriced.

Had this in a teabag sample from Midwest Tea Fest. Thank you, Rishi.

This tea was very drying and reminded me why I don’t drink tea from teabags much anymore. I’m sort of surprised at my disappointment with it since it was whole leaf and not dust and fannings. The flavor was the typical malty, woody kind you’d get from English Breakfast, but the drying quality of this tea was something I couldn’t tolerate and I heard Anlina’s voice in my head “Life’s too short to drink bad tea”, and didn’t finish drinking it. Could have used some milk or sugar, which is a bad thing in my book if it doesn’t stand up on its own without those. It’s fine if it’s optional, but this tea needed to be masked to be drinkable for me. :\
