A tea bag from Izzy, thank you — I guess this is a tea for today morning, a simple tea, a caffeine boost, but not trying to find some flavours and such. As I have received it recenly, I guess it’s new blend.
This tea exactly delivers that what they say: rich and full bodied. It’s indeed full bodied tea; pretty much rich flavour and almost 3 minutes steeping was quite a lot.
I didn’t add any milk, even it is suggested for longer steeps. It was nicely astringent and a bit bitter, but I have been expecting that. Niko said it reminds him Lipton Yellow Label and I have to disagree. The Lipton tea is way more rough, their tea essence is my nightmare in pure blacks, while this was typical black tea flavour. It’s not though autumn leaf pile or some other “good” flavours. It’s a bit tannic, and “tea-ish” Don’t expect you will find anything else.
Not a tea I would drink daily, but better than Czech Pigi čaj (a bestseller here (rolls eyes) ).
