Thursday Tea Time

This week - Tea Embassy Grand English Breakfast Tea

Price:  $5
Size:  2 ounces, about 25 cups of tea
Caffeine:   Yes
Type of Tea:    Black
Steeping time: 3-5 minutes, I did 4 minutes
Mix ins:  Natural Bliss.  You certainly don't want to try this plain.
Fragrance:  Tobacco.  Horses.
Ingredients:  Black tea from Keemun, China
Opinion:   I thought I was on a roll with finding and liking English breakfast teas. That stopped with this one.  Very bitter and astringent.  And the tobacco-y/smoky scent hits you hard as you bring the cup up.  I'm kind of disappointed, as I love all the other Tea Embassy Teas.  Just not this one.
Rating: 0

Such potential
