I’ve been drinking Thompson’s Punjana blend pretty regularly for a while, but have introduced this in a little more recently. I’d say this is basically their “Gold” blend, if comparing to other everyday tea makers. It certainly lives up to that. It’s bright, but also a little more earthy than Punjana. Very smooth. I added just a splash of milk, and have had it with or without some sugar. I’ve been liking it more without recently.
A week or so ago I brewed up a few cups for my nieces, who drink it without milk and use sugar or honey. They enjoyed it a lot too.
I find I appreciate it the most in the late afternoon after work, but it’s great in the morning also. I just seem better able to appreciate its flavors more. I can’t find where, but I had read online that this is a blend of Assam, Kenyan, and Rwandan teas.
A great tea for bringing over for family members while enjoying the holidays, and tasty however taken. The other day I had it with some mince pies I heated up. Shortbreads work great too….
