My favorite local store always has a great variety of teas from this brand, and I am always happy with their products. The box indicates that the tea is a combination of Ceylon and Assam. I definitely enjoyed the smoothness of the Ceylon. There’s a little Assam kick, good for the second cup of the day…I would definitely prefer more Assam to get going on a weekday. If I had to rate Cheapster Steepster English Breakfast Teas, I would put this one above Twinings, but below my beloved Ahmad. :P Ahmad somehow finds a way to get the right combination of smoothness and strength into a regular tea bag…quite an art.

I’m a tea novice, and I’m loving my introduction to the World of Tea. I started getting into tea about 4 years ago when I lived in Brooklyn, NY. At first, I stayed with green teas, and took black teas completely for granted. However, in the last couple years I have enthusiastically added them to my daily routine. I love strong Assam black teas in the morning, and Japanese green teas in the afternoon, especially matcha and gyokuro. I have recently become a big fan of Keemuns. I’m looking forward to learning about new teas on this site and talking to other tea lovers!

As far as ratings go, don’t trust me. I’m a high rater, and I’m easily impressed. If I rate a tea lower than 70 (which is going to happen rarely, it seems), I probably will not drink that tea again. I will splurge for some teas at times, but I love a bargain, so you will often see me celebrating under-appreciated everyday teas.
