I've found this tea one of the best for a predictable, every day tea with a robust aroma and good taste. When brewed strong, it packs a nice punch for cold winter mornings. Because it's so fine, though, it'll clog up screen strainer infusers and is best used with a paper tea filter or a coarser metal infuser. The price is incredible. It's something to have on hand always. It makes excellent iced tea in the summer as well with more character than most iced teas.

An outstanding bargain-buy of impressive quality.

This tea is a blend of fine granules of CTC (mechanically processed) tea, with a small amount of small golden strands of tea leaf. It's a contender for the title of best CTC tea I've ever tried, although I suppose it isn't exactly 100% CTC.

Brews up a really robust, thick cup with a rich color and a powerful aroma of malt and wintergreen. Surprisingly low bitterness and astringency; never tannic or harsh. This tea was pretty exceptional for its price range. I enjoyed drinking it more than many orthodox teas of higher grades. And the price is very low.

I recommend a 1-minute steep with boiling water, using one teaspoon per cup, but this tea is smooth enough that some people may wish to brew it stronger than that.

I can see making this an everyday tea. It's better than most black teas on the market and costs next to nothing.
