This tea was packaged in a silk pyramid style tea bag. This was a “by the book” English breakfast. It was full bodied but mellow at the same time. There were notes of chestnut and a bit a smokiness with just enough astringency to add some briskness. There wasn’t anything particularly special about it but that is kind of the point, isn’t it? A blended tea like this is designed to give you predictable results so it lacks the nuances that you would find in a high end Keemum or Assam. I would definitely recommend this tea.
