A really classic, hearty Australian tea that has more than a hint of billy tea about it. Rich and uplifting. One of my favourites.

Whoa, this tea is going to be MALTy! That was my first thought when I took the tea bag out from its foil prison. It is 7 pm, but no, I want a full-bodied black tea today. I had “just” fresh mint tea today.
I have found out it is blend of Irish Breakfast, Russian Caravan and Orange Pekoe. Yup, certainly all three are definition of malty teas. Strong, malty teas. I do not expect much but something strong. Liquor colour is dark brown, hardly to see bottom of the mug. And I steeped it for not even 2 minutes while they suggest 3 or 4. Izzy – they are probably wrong again :D On water level there is big puddle of oil. Or looks like that. Weird, but whatever.
Cuppa is small with my name – about 200 ml. Aroma is malty, bit smoky and jam. Weird combination. Bit of fruits there too! Actually quite pungent. Tastes pretty sweet – maybe I took it out just right time, with bitter aftertaste. Malty as well. But the taste does not linger for long. Like it is there, gulp, and it is gone.
It is light, but full-bodied tea. Bit better than expected. Certainly worth trying.
This tea is always, ALWAYS in my cupboard. We were so sad when this limited edition’s time was up and it disappeared off the supermarket shelves.
The day we spotted it on our weekly shop with the banner proudly proclaiming “Back and Here To Stay” was truly high-five worthy. It’s robust, slightly sweet and perfect any time of the day.
As with all my black teas, white with one, thanks love.
