drank Taj Mahal by Brooke Bond
24 tasting notes

I am tasting some teas in my collection tonight. I made a cup of Harney & Sons’ English Breakfast (the 100% Keemun variety), and a cup of Taj Mahal. I made them in identical mugs, and for the life of me I cannot tell which is which. They both have a malty richness to them. I think the English Breakfast is the one with a “rounder” flavor, but I can’t be sure. I even looked up the ingredients because I could swear Taj Mahal is Keemun, from this little mix-up. Is it not?

I love the UK, cats, of Montreal, Sherlock, my Kindle, true adventure books, and tea.

My go-to cup is a builder’s tea: black and strong with milk. Never with sugar.
