Well, it’s not as good as the Extra Strong Everyday Teabags. I liked the malty flavor in those. But I wanted to try the Gold Blend ones because my body reacted negatively to the strength of the Everyday Teabags.
Smells kind of odd, reminds me vaguely of cod liver oil capsules.
After steeping the taste is pleasant though. Mellow, smooth, and good with milk.

Just before Christmas, I went to Marks&Spencer´s and bought myself some nice tin lanterns in the shape of houses which can be lit by a small LED in the bottom. The bigger one contained a pack of shortbread biscuits, the smaller one a pack of this tea (just stating the name of the tea and containing 40 teabags, nothing else). When I was studying in UK almost 30 years ago, I would always have teabags in the house, very English and very easy to make oneself a cuppa, but I admit I now mostly buy loose leaf tea, so I needed to “force” myself to open the pack. As the fuse of my water kettle blew (and I still haven´t replaced it), I now have the occasion (heating the water in the microwave) to use the teabags ;-) .
First thing to notice is that the round teabags are fully packed with tea, so I guess they could be used for various steeps, which I won´t do but then again. The malty aroma is confirmed once steeped, but the tea when taken black (as I do) lacks complexity. It isn´t bad however, and it doesn´t seem to get bitter that soon when oversteeping it either, but I reckon this is primarily a great tea to have with milk.

Ugh, it looks like my kettle is on its way out, too. I wonder if there’s some sort of kettle conspiracy here on Steepster!

@Leafhopper : I finally managed to localize the spare fuses I put somewhere ;-) and I repaired the water kettle.

My go to breakfast blend. Nothing comforts a Brit like M&S and this is their finest tea in my opinion.

Drinking this tea takes me back to the basement of Marks and Spencer with a cafeteria tray in front of me filled with scones, clotted cream, jam, and a pot of Gold tea all to myself. Hey, don’t judge…I was on vacation.

It’s a very tasty and mellow blend of black teas. The flavor holds up well with milk.
