I feel like it’s been a long time since I last had an East Frisian blend, but this was quite a nice one – especially for a bagged tea. I added a tiny, tiny amount of milk to the cup but I honestly probably could have left it out. It’s such an intense, full bodied black tea but at the same time is wickedly smooth – no astringency/bitterness. The predominant flavour is just a very strong, intense malt note. However there’s also a bread-y quality too; like Soda Bread. Good to start the morning with, as a Breakfast Blend alternative.
