The best part about vacationing in the US is that I can go to Trader Joe’s. I picked up a number of bagged teas (all decaf/herbal tisanes) because most hotels only have lame English breakfast/green teabags. I didn’t realize there were 40 teabags in the box, so I guess I’m going ot be drinking this for a while to come.
This was not as brisk or acidic as I expected. If anything, it was more pleasant than English breakfast often are. Malty, thick mouthfeel, very flavourful. I really enjoyed mine with soy milk, but I imagine it would take well to being enjoyed straight. No sweetener needed, the leaf doesn’t need it. Nothing really stands out about this blend, other than not being unpleasant in any way (doesn’t over steep quickly, is smooth and palatable). This would make a really nice daily drinker in the evening.
Flavors: Malt, Smooth, Tannin, Thick
