Pukka Days of Christmas#4
English Breakfast isn´t exactly what Pukka is known for, but I guess it was a no brainer to have at least an EB in its portfolio. Also, for me, it´s quite strange to combine “elegant” with EB, as the standard EB blend is supposed to be quite strong to wake you up in the morning, while an elegant tea is intended to savour at a moment when your senses are in top shape. So be it…I tried this elegant EB tea this morning, and because I like my breakfast teas strong and full of character, this blend didn´t really impress me, but then again, it was quite OK for a teabag , and also the taste was clean and crisp without too much bitterness at 3minutes steeping. I wouldn´t steep it longer though.
Anyway, from tomorrow I´m back to my normal – loose leaf – breakfast tea, preferentially an African Assam.
