Our Review
In the 1980's John Harney was at the barricades of the tea revolution. When Malachi McCormick hand published (on his tiny press) A Decent Cup of Tea, John fell in with this fellow traveler. Together they did a few tea projects; one was this tea. It has been described as 'a pure and simple tea that is unpretentious and affordable'.
Dry Leaves Simple black tea leaves.
Liquor Dark brown.
Aroma Since this is a blend of simple teas the aroma is muted malt and suggestive of cocoa.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This British Legacy Tea has a strong, simple body.
Flavors The unpretenious flavors of muted dark honey and unsweetened cocoa. It is perfectly suited for milk (and more than a splash) and sugar.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Smooth and Steady
Average Review:

It is a curious irony that Malachi McCormick personally disapproved of blended teas. Still I think he would have enjoyed this one. A cup of boiling water, a teaspoon, and patience for ~4 minutes will reward you with the cup you can only dream of getting away from home. Practically tannin-free, with a solid flavor that stands up even iced. Pity the neighbors cannot smell it brewing. Waitress, a cup of boiling water, please. Yes, I said boiling.
