While I’m a staunch supporter of British irony, and love the name and story behind this tea, I can only give it a pass on taste. They say it’s a blend of Ceylon and Darjeeling, and to some extent the flavors of both are present. However, it embitters far too quickly (even at a three-minute steep) and starts off dry on the foretaste. It eventually settles into a clean/floral Ceylon note in the middle, and a spicy aspect from the Darjeeling last, but it’s a rocky road to get there.

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
