This is one of my two favorite black teas. I cannot understand other reviewers who talk about a "woody" taste or a vegetable, bean or snap pea taste; that would be disgusting. There is nothing in this tea remotely resembling these tastes. It's merely an excellent black tea that I sweeten a bit with a good turbinado sugar. I enjoyed it even more with a darker Asian compacted molasses sugar but I cannot find that in the USA.
They aren't kidding when they say it tastes like wood. Made it again slightly stronger and tasted like I was chewing a plank... I'll stick with plain old orange pekoe when I'm not doing English Breakfast or Tippy Yunnan.
I've stuck mostly to heartier stuff but with Kenilworth I've found a smooth tea that hits the spot. Very light and smooth but with enough flavor that I'm not bored.
