This isn’t bad at all for a bagged tea – composed entirely of Indian black teas it smells like a Darjeeling but it isn’t as astringent though there might be a touch of muscatel flavour in there. There’s a hint of Assam’s maltiness and the blend is robust enough to go well with milk but gentle enough that you could drink it plain if you reduced the steeping time (i usually do 5 minutes with a black tea I plan to add milk to and 3.5 min for a black tea I’m going to drink plain). It would be nicer as a whole leaf tea, but for what it is this tea isn’t half-bad.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
