drank Kandy F.B.O.P. by MlesnA
87 tasting notes

Martin got around to reviewing this tea before I did – and I completely agree with his note. This is an okay tea but nothing special, and definitely reminiscent of an English Breakfast blend.

It’s smooth, pleasant and bright, although I found that the tannin notes and malt are dominating the aroma more than the flavour. But then, I only brewed for 3 minutes to drink it without milk.

I also found some bitterness on the back of my tongue at the end of each sip. It’s subtle though and doesn’t detract from the overall experience.

Taking pictures for the blog in winter is hard. I’m out of fresh flowers from the garden, so I made do with a little fox pot plant and matching face mask: https://www.immortalwordsmith.co.uk/mlesna-kandy-tea-review/

A British tea lover with the crazy idea that she can review every possible tea. Ever. Check out my blog to see my progress so far…

My all-time favourite tea brands that I go back to for a cup of comfort:
Whittard of Chelsea
English Tea Shop

I rate teas on a spreadsheet, giving marks out of 10 for:
Condition of the tea leaves/ingredients,
Quality of ingredients (e.g. artificial flavours or freshly dried fruit?),
Dry aroma,
Wet aroma,
Sensation (how does it make me feel?),
and Colour.
Then, with a little head scratching, I do the math and work out the score out of 100.

Open to tea swaps – even internationally!
