Histocially, when I’ve been tasting through a company like this and had a lot of sachets/samples to get through, I’ve started with the flavours that seem most fun and interesting to me – but the result of that is that I always end up ending with the boring ones or the ones with flavours I’m quite certain I won’t like as much. So, I’m trying hard here to actively mix it up more with what I drink from this company…
This isn’t really exciting – but it’s classic. For an “unnamed” breakfast blend (ala “English Breakfast” or “Irish Breakfast”) I think it leans more Irish in that it’s mostly thick malt without some of the fruitier/more raisin-y notes that typically come through in something like an English Breakfast. I personally like most English Breakfast blends more because, as much as I’m a malt monster when it comes to black tea, I do also like sweet teas a lot and the raisin notes you get are sweeter.
Wouldn’t personally feel compelled to revisit this in any form, but I think the quality is just fine for not only the teabag format but the price as well.
