Good morning Steepster.
I haven’t been buying much new tea lately as I’m trying to work my way through the formidable stock I already have. I picked up this sample tea bag in one of our hotels in India (can’t remember which hotel).

I’ve never been a big Breakfast Blend tea drinker but this is pretty nice. It’s a blend of Assam and 2nd flush darjeeling. The Assam is more prominent and the darjeeling is adding a lighter and fruity note in the background. I found this to be pretty tasty with a splash of soymilk, it did not need sugar. For a breakfast tea, I would prefer something a bit more hefty but I can definitely see the appeal of this. I have enjoyed it.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.
