I was a little hesitant to try this tea because I had purchased it something like 7 years ago, and it wasn’t exactly in a sealed container. However, at the risk of my stomach, I had a large cup anyway. As of writing this I am still feeling fine, which will hopefully continue.
Now, to the tea. Very bold and caffeinated, which is what I hoped for and expected from this English Breakfast blend. I used half of a tea ball in a very large tea cup (probably about 3 actual measuring cups’ worth), and it only took that much tea to leave gradual stain marks on the side of the cup. So, a little definitely goes a long way.
I can taste some earthy flavors/scents within this tea. Overall, it is very nice if you’re looking for something akin to coffee in terms of boldness and caffeine.
