I cold-steeped three bags at a time in my 1L iced tea pitcher, and left the bags in the liquid in the fridge (I know, I know…). Lots of flavour and quite tasty (not at all bitter) done that way; as a hot tea, it was completely nondescript. It’s okay – not bad, not great, absolutely nothing special. I really appreciate that it’s all Ceylon tea.
I won’t lie, I also bought this whole set (red/white/blue) for the tins, as I’ve got a few bags of loose English Breakfast and Earl Grey that need homes. My favourite of the three tins is the afternoon blend.
