I noticed this last time, but now I’m sure. This upsets my stomach! I dont know why it would do that, but a cup of this and I feel a little… acidic maybe? Well, thats it for this tea! No more sick making tea, even if its otherwise unoffensive. Sipdown!

Made a small pot (2 slightly rounded teaspoons loose tea, ~400 mL boiling water) this afternoon – one cup straight, one steeped ~30 seconds longer with unsweetened soya milk added. I usually take black tea with sugar, but I’m pleased to find out that I like this one just fine without. I had the milky cup with a blueberry brownie, which played nicely off the tea’s citrusy notes.

On its own, this afternoon blend is pretty brash and acidic. However, I remembered to bring some shelf-stable creamer tub-lets to the office and tried a cup with some dairy. That did the trick: it toned down the metallic sharpness, so the blend was perky and fresh. I needed an infusion of perky and fresh. After working hours correcting errors on a huge spreadsheet, I discovered it was still off by three cents.


Yes, that sounds like very strong tea is required. And cookies.

Ugh! I feel your spreadsheet pain. Hugs


Ahh the spreadsheet, I feel that! That is no joke.


I knew I could count on y’all for a little sympathy. Self-pity is not nearly as encouraging!

Martin Bednář

Ah spreadsheets. You count cents, I count grams. And the results are very similar. Always a miss, but for how much worth? Few cents…


I FOUND IT!!!!!!!!!!! (Let’s not talk about how many dollars in labor it took.)


Woohoo! Now that calls for celebratory tea and cookies!

My tin of English Afternoon only mentions that it’s a blend of Ceylon teas, so it’s not the Ceylon/Kenyan blend that a few others have tried…My tiny tin was part of the Alice in Wonderland themed set, but I don’t know whether that alone accounts for the difference.

In any case, it’s a pretty solid CTC black. It brews up a wonderfully inky black-brown, so I added a decent splash of milk to round things out. It’s malty with a crisp citrus edge, so just what I’d expect from a Ceylon, really. Nothing complicated, just good, plain black tea. I’ve been drinking it after lunch to help me deal with the inevitable 3.00pm slump, but it’d also be a good wake-up blend, it’s that strong. For a CTC, not bad.

Not sure if this is the same tea as this listing shows. The tin I have says “pure Ceylon teas packed in Sri Lanka”. Nothing about Kenyan blends. At any rate, I bought this because the tin was awesome and it was on sale. :) This tasting note is for both English Afternoon and Tea Rations. I’m positive they are the same teas.

I wasn’t expecting much from the teabags and they mainly live up to expectations. They have a mild buttery scent but I suspect that is the bags. They are the paper bags without strings like Celestial Seasonings has. The tea is a basic tea bag tea – it’s tea flavored tea. Fannings of tea that steep super quickly and the flavor is unremarkable but not horrible. It does take cream very well and that takes it from an acceptable cup to quite nice but nothing I’d keep on hand.

S’okay. I bought for the tins. :)
