Aside from the blackcurrant, the flavoring in this is rather subtle. The tea base is moderately rich and has a darkness in color as well as taste. It is almost a bit too tart but that's where the faint vanilla and caramel rescue it to give it some sweetness.

It's a good example of blending done well with flavoring...

Royal Blend from Fortnum & Mason

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

This has a smooth, rich flavor, although with a touch of sharpness (short steeping time is better). It practically begs to have milk added, which I don't typically do. Taken black, I find it a little lacking in sweetness. The aroma comes more from the Ceylon and is pleasantly nutty, while the Assam ensures a malty fini...

English Breakfast from Stash Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

This strikes me as a tea perhaps intended for coffee drinkers looking to switch it up. It's also mild en...

The aroma of this tea is clean and straightforward, with a slight pungency that perks you up. The taste is simple, mellow, and lightly sweet. It's a great tea to drink slowly, savoring the richness with every sip. The liquor is fairly dark but that doesn't really detract from the taste.

Although at the lowest end of...

English Breakfast (Black Tea Signature Collection) from Wissotzky

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

55 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5

This has a pleasant, earthy aroma that fades too quickly once you drink it. I was let down by the fairly bland taste. It's labeled as a blend of Ceylon and Indian teas; the Ceylon taste comes through the strongest and there isn't much to it past that.

It's acceptable with some additions, but I doubt I'd get it agai...
