I have been drinking CTC Assam for 15 years. Mt tastes are changing and it is a tad too strong for me. I am switching to this one full time (currently my weekend treat).
Sophie's Cup of Tea
I first tried this tea when H&S ran their "Golden Ticket" marketing campaign earlier during the summer. Who can resist the experience in hoping like "Charlie" from "Willy Wonka", that yours would be the magic golden ticket! I didn't win, but I enjoyed the tea anyway! Well, actually, I did "Win," -- I got to be introduced to this wonderful tea!
I drink a lot of black tea, and I have to say this is right up there in my top 3 all time favorite teas! And the competition is stiff. This tea has a bold malty flavor to it, that goes perfect with a little sugar and half-n-half. Very relaxing and soothing; perfect anytime of the day!
Perfect tea that almost seems to have a sweetness built in to it. Lovely bit of honey scent to it as well.
