This is a tea with a lot of heft, like a Scottish man in a kilt tossing logs in the air. It doesn’t have floral notes. It doesn’t have much flavor to be honest other than dark tea flavor.
We steeped this in a mesh tea ball for 5 minutes. We use a strainer when we pour cups of tea from our pot and with this tea, you have to be careful not to take that final sip! Because it is more “powdered” than what we’re used to in a loose leaf, it leaves tea like mud in the bottom of the cup. This tea would be much better in a bag or sachet. Most likely bag as the particles are really fine.
The color is dark and I can see why they say this tea would take milk or cream well. All in all, a really fine tea, one I wouldn’t be afraid to serve to my guests, especially those who prefer a little cream in their tea.
If you've lived in England and love PG Tips, this tea is for you. It tastes like PG Tips, but is much, much better! It is one of my favorite teas.
Perfect spot of tea if you like it Downton style. Wonderful smooth but strong enough to perk me up. 5 stars!
