Santa must have stopped off in London before he got to my house this year and picked up a New English Teas gift pack for me. I really like the cute little tins that are shaped like a British double-decker bus, phone booth, and royal guard station.
This London Tea has a nice mellow flavor. There is a taste of malt, as well as the familiar full black tea flavor that seems to be standard with most of the British blends. The tea has a light mahogany color after brewing for three minutes at 212 degrees.
This variety was phenomenal with the addition of a few cakes of genuine Scottish shortbread. Tea and shortbread are obviously made for each other. Like all of the British varieties I have tried so far, this tea is best described as pleasant and tasty.
So one of my best friends actually bought me this London tea from London itself which is way cool. And can I just say that the best thing about it is the packaging? It’s a tiny double decker bus! And it came in a box that says “I ♥ London” awww.
This is kind of one of those teas that just screams breakfast and it’s my go-to tea for sipping while eating baked goods and while marathoning Sherlock (which I tend to do more than I’d like to admit) My sister and I found this glorious Cinnamon Toast Crunch muffin mix at the grocery store (and I know, I know, boxed mixes aren’t all that great) BUT WE WERE REALLY EXCITED AND SO WE SPENT THE AFTERNOON BAKING.
This is the perfect tea to cut all the sugar from our baking extravaganza as it is quite strong. Basically your standard brisk black tea, but I enjoy it with some milk. Also packed with a lot of caffeine oops. But hey, what can ya do? I’m currently sitting at the kitchen table stuffing my face with my sister as she enjoys a glass of chocolate milk and I enjoy this tea- my ideal lazy day off.
