Add a little amount of milk to make a delicious cuppa for breakfast or for tea time. Brew 4-5 mins.

I was surprised at how much I liked this tea. I wasn’t really expecting much. It’s a solid English Breakfast Tea. This is one of the better English Tea Shop teas. Once in a while, I just want a decent cup of black tea and this does the trick.

Another find in the office kitchen. I’ve had (probably) the world’s worst cold this last week, and all I wanted today was some normal tea. It’s a thing with me when I’m ill, and I can’t taste anything particularly well at the moment anyway, so…

I used one bag for my cup. They’re individually wrapped in the cutest red, white and blue envelopes. I gave it a good 3.5 minutes, and added milk. To taste, it’s pretty much as you’d expect. It reminds me quite a lot of Bluebird’s Great British Cuppa, in that it has a waxy roast white potato aspect to it. There’s also a hint of saltiness in the mid-sip, which works well with the potato note. The maltiness comes out mostly towards the end of the sip, and in the aftertaste, and adds a pleasant sweetness to round off on. It’s robust-tasting, but not as strong as some I’ve tried – just a pleasing, everyday kind of cup. Just what I was craving!

After a bit of a tea buying hiatus (too many teas in the cupboard and trying to avoid the proverbial eye rolls from my significant other) I decided to end that the other day with some Fauchon and this! Isn’t that tea tin just darling… my inner Victorian British upper class lady was shrieking with delight when I saw these LOOSE teas in these adorable tea tins… I had to have them. Winners and Homesense can be a VERY dangerous place to go. Thankfully in the summer months, they tend to have less stock, and therefore I do not frequent as much. However… with fall looming (YAY! My favourite season!), the stock is piling in and the temptations that come with it! Naturally I had to try English Breakfast this morning on this beautiful Sunday morning when I am stuck working.

Let me tell you, it was STRONG. Phew! I like my tea strong and I found myself going back to the cream and sugar. I think I will under leaf and reduce the time. Other than that a nice cup of English Breakfast. I am not going to give a rating yet, will try it rebrewed.
