Review of Whittard Original

8 of 105 of 53 of 583 of 100

Sometimes you get really lucky and find a treasure where least expecting it, in this case I found this tea at a discount style close-out grocery store. Described by the box as a strong traditional black leaf blend, the tea certainly looks and smells strong. The aroma is rich and slightly nutty with a hint of malt from the Assam. I did not really smell any of the crisp citrus aroma from the Ceylon though.

I brewed it the way my dad (who was English) taught me to brew a traditional tea, with a spoonful of sugar and a dash of cream. The taste is rich but not overpowering. Crisp, bright, and a hint of malt makes for, in my opinion, the epitome of a perfect black tea.
