The first time I have a new black tea I like to try it plain first, even though I usually put milk and sometimes honey into mine. It’s sort of so I get an idea about the flavour without anything else messing with my perception. Yeah, I’ve got it all down to a science. ;)
This one is pretty plain actually, the Ceylon base is mostly what I taste, although there are sweet hints of maple syrup. It’s not harsh-tasting, other than that it’s a pretty generic Ceylon.
