I picked up a small bag of this to compare to the English Breakfast Decaf that Tea Time carries. I love this tea just as much. I do not seem to have a well developed enough palate to really tell the difference between the two. I will have to do a side by side comparison when I feel better. I actually remembered to taste the tea before I added milk and honey! This tea is “sweet” enough and not bitter brewed at 3 1/2 minutes so that I was able to drink it black. Wow. Will have to try this with the English Breakfast next time to see if I can drink it without milk and honey as well. All in all a keeper especially since there aren’t many decaf teas to choose from!
Made this as an iced tea today sweetened and with a bit of lemon. It was a hit!! My son actually said to dad “you have to try this it’s so good!”

I am pretty new to trying different types of loose leaf teas. Growing up we only ever had Chinese restaurant tea or bagged orange pekoe. Later on I tried genmai cha at the Japanese restaurants and added that permanently to my tea cupboard.

So far, I like oolongs and black. Most often I drink straight teas but I do like some flavoured ones as long as they don’t taste fakey or chemically. I would like to try more greens, whites and more Rooibos’ as well as anything that doesn’t have caffeine in it to add to my cupboard.

An attempt at a rating system:
90-100 worthy of being permanently stocked in my cupboard
80-89 great tea would love to have in my tea cupboard but probably in smaller quantities
70-79 very nice tea but I don’t necessarily have to have it
60-69 will drink it but not choose to stock it
50-59 prefer not to drink it unless it is all I have
<50 total miss for my tastes
