This blend is complex, and with each sip on the morning I notice something new about it. It's worth it!

This tea has a rich, smoky aroma. The flavor is crisp. I really like it. It's a little bitter if brewed too long. I added cream and sugar.

This is my favorite tea so far from the Boston Tea Company. Although Irish Breakfast isn't my favorite style of black tea, this is without a doubt my favorite Irish breakfast tea yet, and I find this particular blend to stand out among any kind of strong black tea.

The aroma is complex, powerful, and surprisingly floral given this tea's depth and strength. I don't know exactly what ratios were used in this blend, but I think the high-grown Ceylon tea dominates the aroma, and the malty character from the Assam is secondary.

The flavor is what I really love about this tea: it's bitter--very bitter--and yet there is almost no astringency. I love teas like this. Although the cup is a deep reddish brown color, it's not particularly tannic: it just has a clean bite, leaving a refreshing, clean quality in the mouth.

I would recommend this tea to anyone who likes strong black teas, particularly, people who want a tea that has a bit of a kick to it but without the heaviness or astringency that plagues many such teas.
