Backlogging from a bit earlier – had this as my drag my rear out of bed too early today tea.
Had an appointment to get my daughter’s car detailed after the “we bought a used car that was infested” fiasco of two weeks ago.
Long story – long sickening story.
Anyway … BAH after only 4 hours sleep all I could do was grab a bagged tea but this one is a good bagged tea to get ya going.


Oh noes! You deserve extra tea today.


Thanks lol funny thing is – this car detailer guy – he obviously does not exist. We headed out early (hubby had to be to work at 10) and we could not find the place. Came home – google mapped the address we had for him – went back out and tried to find the place again. It is NOT there! AND I can’t find the phone number to the place anywhere ( it was a recommendation so I never had found it myself looking it up) Sometimes these things happen because some things are not meant to happen. Maybe he was an ax murder and the universe just saved our lives HAHA okay that is extreme but ya never know.
SIGH strange day so far …. it can only get better :)

Oh, My! Such adventures so early in the morn.
You should always quote Peter Pan before such events “Would you like an adventure now,
or shall we have our tea first?” ;)


Haha! Indeed!


Wow! That is the best way to look at it. It wasn’t meant to be for whatever reason!


Thank you ashmanra. :)

BB #7 for today!

Robust in every way!
Rich, Dark, Hefty!

A little bitter but also malty.

As my grandfather used to say…“it’ll put some hair on your chest!”
A nice kick in the pants! haha

Hesper June

I think my hubby would like this tea.
He is always telling me I need to stock more “manly” teas.
He likes strong, robust teas and this one sounds like it would fit the bill.


Oh, it does! It was too manly for me! LOL! This me and Clipper Gold stole my lunch money! Your hubby should like them just fine, Hesper June.

Hesper June

Cool! I will order some for him;)


Hahaha! love your grandpa’s quote :-)

I made 4 oz of this today and added a LOT of milk and some sugar to it. Wow this brews a dark and strong tea!


One of my favorites.

This is another sample from Azzrian. Thanks again my friend.

This is robust, bold and strong. It has a nice malty finish. This is very enjoyable for a convenient brew. I didn’t find it bitter or particularly astringent which just makes this better. It’s really good iced too. :D

Indeed for me this tea is a sure bet when you just want a good old fashioned cup of tea and this box in particular came right over from England from a friend of mine. Even though I have found where I can buy it here now its just cool to have tea literally FROM England! :) At least it is to me.


lol yes that is rather cool. :D


I love Yorkshire Gold. So hearty and down-to-earth. “Carry on” kind of tea!


I can see that about this tea. I think it could be a very comfortable cup of tea. Just like a good pair of jeans.

This is a robust tea… one that would be perfect for a morning tea, especially on one of those days that you’d rather stay in bed but you can’t because you’ve got places to go and things to do. That is to say, this tea has that get up and go factor.

It is very full-bodied and well-rounded. A nice malty note from the Assam.

Wow, I really needed this today, too, I didn’t sleep too well last night and there’s a part of me that really wanted to stay in bed. I think I’m feeling much more awake now!

Another holiday bargain I have yet to log. This tea helps me understand how the British Empire was instrumental in hooking the world on tea. There is power, restoration, vigor, and a sense time honored tradition in every cup of this tea. Did I mention it is bagged? ((gasp)) I have to remind myself that good things can come in bags…and usually at a better price. Right gmathis??? :) If you like an English Breakfast or Afternoon tea, this is a good one. I am about to make a second cup to enjoy with my grilled ham and cheddar on rye with some horseradish mustard. Bon A petite’ ya’ll.


Okay, I’ve got to hunt this down. And you’re making me hungry.


TJ Maxx is where I found this box. Sorry! :)


I got mine at Krogers. Just $6 too!


I just picked up some Yorkshire Gold, I think I actually like the regular better.
It seemed a little more stiff and hearty.

Like PG Tips,this is another “Oh, I can’t believe I found this English tea in my grocery store!” purchase. I had thought about buying this on Amazon and now I don’t have to.

This tastes very similar to PG Tips, and the Kenyan tea added to the blend makes those teas distinctive from other English Breakfast teas I’ve had. It’s bold and robust, but there is just something missing here. It just doesn’t seem flavorful enough compared to the similar PG Tips-especially considering the bit of tannic bite. I’ve tried brewing at 2,3, and 4 minutes. Leery about going 5 minutes with a bag of this-getting so much caffeine as it is. It’s not bad, but I am doubting that I’ll buy this again. The same store had Yorkshire Gold-maybe I’ll try that next.

I’ve had the Yorkshire Gold and didn’t think it was terrific. I don’t know if ever got around to rating it.


Amy Oh – the first one I had was like…why is everyone LOVING this? But since then I have had better experiences…I totally see what you mean :)


I just noticed I didn’t review that either…not there anyways…perhaps it was a double listing…I’ll check :P

Scott B

People really love this red-I expected more out of it even though it’s bagged tea. Does the Gold taste much different than the Red?


I don’t think I have tried the Gold :(

Scott B

I think it’s only about $5 for a box of Gold-I probably can’t resist even if it’s not that memorable.


I hear ya! :) LOL

I’ve been drinking this with milk and demerara sugar on the looong, miserable drive to work in the morning. I like it. It’s smooth and dark and malty. But, it has this underlying vegetable soup taste that I just can’t ignore. I know tea is a plant and I need to stop kvetching about a plant tasting planty, but I don’t see myself stopping any time soon when black teas taste green. I also like teas with a little more bite than this, at least for the morning. But I could see it being more appropriate for a later time of day, when I’m looking more for relaxation. I’ll definitely finish this, but it isn’t going onto my buy it again list unless my opinion softens as I drink my way through the box.

It is a pretty tea though- a deep rich red that blooms out of the bag as soon as it is plopped in. My SO pronounced it ‘beautiful’ and it is.

I’ve steeped this at boiling up to 5 minutes and it hasn’t gone tart.

(Unrelated to tea taste: I wanted teabags to toss in a travel mug in the morning for the drive to work because I ain’t got time fo looseleaf in the morning. I expected strings. There aren’t any strings! Egad! I asked my SO if she would sew strings on each tea bag for me and she said no but offered to staple them on. I just know I’d choke on a staple.)

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

lol! I would totally choke on the staple


I really, really recommend these: www.davidstea.com/david-s-tea-filters. They’re single-use filter bags with a drawstring closure. I fill a couple up at night with looseleaf (they’re awesome for rooibos or anything else with small leaves) and then toss them into my lunch box for work the next day.

They’re a little more expensive than stringless versions (t-sacs), but I love them!


Oh, nice, thanks. When I finally order from David’s I’ll pick some up. Then I could even do my own blends.

TTBA!! (For those who are new to Steepster, that stands for Traveling Tea Box A).
There’s an envelope with 2 bags of this. I had one as my pre-breakfast tea. I probably should have made it my breakfast tea, it’s nicely bold & malty. Not sure if I’ll drink the other bag, as it’s a little on the bitter end as well. I might leave that one for one of my other black tea loving friends to sample.
Anyways, for a bagged tea it does pack a punch, which I find rare, but probably not something I’d stock.

Added 4 hours later: Had errands to run & knew I’d be stopping off for 2nd breakfast at a little hole in the wall I like, so I brought the 2nd bag, which as was pretty nice with the meal.

Thanks to kimlovestea for this one! (BTW can anyone let me know how to “tag” someone when I’m thanking them? You know, when their usename is bolded?)

Oh yum. I love me some breakfast tea. And this one is no exception. Really good, especially for a bagged tea.

Thanks again kimlovestea!

3 min, 30 sec

don’t know how to tag on here, but I am so glad you like it! It’s one of my first and favorite breakfast teas!


It was delicious, a great surprise! Thanks again :)


Putting stars (*) around a word will bold it!


Thanks Alphakitty :)
