This is a pretty solid standard breakfast tea; good strength, malty without being bitter. The one other plain Harney & Sons black tea I have had, Ceylon and India, is one of my favorites, so I have to say, while this is good, it is not quite what I expected. Also, as I always consider cost, $9 for 20 sachets is fairly steep considering what else can be found for that price. I’m glad I gave this tea a try, and will enjoy drinking it, but it won’t be added to my regular inventory.

I’m a tea novice, and I’m loving my introduction to the World of Tea. I started getting into tea about 4 years ago when I lived in Brooklyn, NY. At first, I stayed with green teas, and took black teas completely for granted. However, in the last couple years I have enthusiastically added them to my daily routine. I love strong Assam black teas in the morning, and Japanese green teas in the afternoon, especially matcha and gyokuro. I have recently become a big fan of Keemuns. I’m looking forward to learning about new teas on this site and talking to other tea lovers!

As far as ratings go, don’t trust me. I’m a high rater, and I’m easily impressed. If I rate a tea lower than 70 (which is going to happen rarely, it seems), I probably will not drink that tea again. I will splurge for some teas at times, but I love a bargain, so you will often see me celebrating under-appreciated everyday teas.
