Our Review
A classic BLT (British Legacy Tea) that combines the strong teas from former British colonies. A great tea to wake up with or to shake you out of the afternoon doldrums. The British always use milk and sugar with this tea.
Dry Leaves This tea is comprised of small, medium brown, broken-up leaves.
Liquor This blend brews dark brown.
Aroma There are aromas of muted honey and citrus.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This is a full bodied tea.
Flavors The flavors are full with this tea: the honey from the Indian tea (Assam) and the citrus notes from the broken ceylon. Many people like to temper this tea with milk and sugar.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes

Perfect with Paris
Average Review:

I love to blend teas at home. This one has such great aroma and blends well with Paris (which is my favorite flavored black tea blend).
It is really a lovely tea. Most other teas are too grassy or overpoweringly strong.

Average Review:

I drink two cups each morning. The sachets are superior to the bags as with all teas.

Just wasn't for me
Average Review:

I'm still fairly new too tea so I'm trying to make the rounds through the different types to decide on what I like and dislike. I picked this up as one of the black teas I should give a try. I unfortunately wasn't blown away by it. This tea was a fair bit too bitter for me, I had a friend help me with the brewing as well too get it just right and it just wasn't working out for me. Beyond that, the flavor there was decent, I liked the smokeyness and the heavier earthy flavors I tend to associate with black teas, this one just didn't grab me. For anyone who hasn't tried it however, at least get a sampler before making a determination because obviously many other enjoy it, I'm just a unique case ;).
