Although I enjoy straight black tea, especially with meals, I’m not very good at identifying the different flavors and scents of various types and blends. Hoping that as I continue to try different teas, my palette will become more refined!

This particular black tea is different from any of the others I’ve tried so far from Great British Tea Store. Instead of the rich, malty flavor I’m used to, it has more of a sharp, assertive taste. It’s also quite astringent. With a splash of milk I did enjoy it, but I don’t think this is one I would re-purchase.

Flavors: Astringent

205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ~ C.S. Lewis

I was introduced to loose leaf tea by a roommate in 2012, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon Steepster in 2014 that I discovered a world of tea that went beyond Teavana and the grocery store.

My tastes continue to evolve, but black tea is currently my favorite. I am especially drawn to strong, malty breakfast blends to wake me up in the morning and flavored dessert teas to sip throughout the day.

Just about everything in my cupboard is available to swap, so feel free to ask!
