12/14/09 My Teavana order arrived tonight. I have been busy putting the Rock Sugar away and the teas into tins. This English Breakfast Tea is what I have been searching for…smooth taste, not bitter. Takes well to sugar and milk. Reminds me of coffee. Thanks to all the reviews here at Steepster, I think I have finially found my daily tea. I have been able to get 3 infusions, making this tea very affordable for everyday drinking.
12/18/09 I really like this tea. Three infusions. It reminds me of coffee when you add milk. Just a few crystals of rock sugar and you are good to go. This is my morning tea.
12/21/09 Got four infusions from this tonight. This is fast becoming my everyday favorite. Just plain and simple and the price point is affordable and with getting multiple infusions too, I am more than happy with this tea! I do add a few rock sugar crystals and a splash of milk…tastes heavenly in my cup.
12/29/09 I did not drink all the tea in my cup today…This is a first..Maybe I am over this tea?! 12/30/09 too much rock sugar..ugh:( poured out, reinfused the leaves w/an added pinch. Better, drinkable. 1/1/10 just ok1/3/10 brewed plain no sugar I like it better! Waiting for my Yunnan to come….

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
