Geez this is probably the strongest black tea I’ve ever tasted! It smelled like coffee when it was brewing. I would recommend a shorter brewing time than 4-5 minutes suggested by Gryphon, because the tea itself is very flavourful and the tea bag contains quite a lot of tea leaves. A bit of milk and sugar would also be a good idea unless you are feeling really drowsy!

That’s a plain black tea, with rather good quality tea inside the bag. The leaves are all broken within the bag, but are real pieces of leaves, not grinded leaves nor dust.
During steeping, the leaves expand quite a lot and the bag looks almost too small.
The color is a nice golden-brown.
The taste is, I suppose, quite nice for a non-flavored black tea. However, both Boh teas I have (one Flowery Pekoe and the other a Pekoe A leaves) are rather nicer, with nice full leaves, and were significantly cheaper.
I was rather disappointed by tasting this tea, whose main merit was to help me understand my Malaysian black tea was definitely very good quality. My second finding is that I’m really not a huge fan of plain breakfast teas.
I also believe a shorter steeping of around 3 mn would probably be better for the first steep.
