Day 14 of the 2016 advent calendar! To be honest, I never really got into ‘breakfast’ teas. I guess I must have just found them boring compared to what else what offered. And I don’t know how else to describe this tea other than that it smells like black tea? I mean, that’s… all that it is so I shouldn’t be surprised.
Steeped, it is a bit concerning. There are… a lot of bits that escaped by perfect mug’s steeper basket. I imagine that using the steeper might have prevented it, but the fact that it still escapes the infusers is not really good. Besides that, it actually tastes a lot better than I was expected. I find it mellow, smooth and a bit sweet.
Overall, this is a pretty decent straight tea. I like it enough that I might even start incorporating it into my own breakfast routine.
