Review of English Tea No. 1

7 of 104 of 54 of 574 of 100
Very GoodGoodGood Value

This bagged tea didn't earn quite as high of a rating as Ahmad's loose-leaf version of English Afternoon, but it was very good. Oodles of bags of this turned up in my pantry in an unmarked tin (my wife likes it, apparently), so I figured to give it a try.

I could taste the bergamot a bit -- not as much as with the EA tea of course, but pleasantly detectable. In a big, white cup that I use for these reviews, the color turned very dark and opaque within a minute or two out of about 7-8 minutes of immersion. The flavor was robust and satisfying, if a bit plain. It's not the strongest, richest black tea I've had (that would be a pure Assam from Murchie's), but sits firmly in the upper quartile. A generously dense, straightforward black tea that goes well with sweetener and lime juice (I drank some for reviewing before adding the juice)...
