Without beating around the bush, this is a really good Sri Lankan/Ceylon tea. This seems to be one of the few brands of bagged tea that selected Sri Lankan tea for its flavors rather than for simply being "mild". This tea is remarkably similar in flavor to Ahmad and Alwazah branded Ceylon teas that are available from Middle Eastern markets.

The tea's pleasantly astringent and has a light-to-medium bitterness. It smells of darkly baked cookies or sweetrolls and tastes of lightly sweetened cocoa powder, which pretty much describes the bitterness level, as well. If you find bittersweet chocolate to be pleasant, then this tea will be. The finish is long and the cocoa lingers at the back of the tongue. I've let the cup cool to a bit below lukewarm and I'm starting to taste raw walnuts.

This tea is delicious, organic, Fair Trade and available at grocery stores. It's fifty cents more expensive than regular Bigelow or Celestial Seasonings. My only beef at all is with calling this tea an "English Breakfast". It's not. It's an easily recognizable Ceylon with no Assam whatsoever.
