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 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 The aromas 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
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Excellent Body and Flavor
Average Review:

This tea has excellent body from the Assam and great flavor and aroma from the Ceylon. I could drink it every day with no problem. It goes well with milk and sugar but can be drunk with just a little sugar as well.

Good blend
Average Review:

I agree with the 'mellow' part of the description. The ceylon brings down the aggressiveness of the assam and adds a layer of sweetness and fruitiness that compliments very well the astringency. Great aroma of the dry leave and nice finish.

Perfect
Average Review:

Orange Pekoe perfected, with a wonderful smooth brightness that's great with or without milk. For those of us whose first tea was Lipton, this is the archetypal cuppa. It gives a nice lift and is as comforting as a bedtime story.
