Firstly, who knew that Wedgwood made tea? Secondly, while I normally like black teas, this was much too strong! It was strong, a little bitter, and tasted too burnt for my liking. While I appreciate other Wedgwood products, I probably won't be having this again.

I like this tea. It has a nice strong flavor, and it's not too bitter, but it gets more bitter at the bottom of the cup. I added cream and sugar.

This is a CTC tea and it is insanely strong. I brewed for a little less than a minute, using less than a teaspoon of leaf, and it was still a bit strong for me. This tea is fairly aromatic; I'm not sure exactly the proportions that go in but I can definitely taste some Ceylon and what seems like possibly an Assam or something similar. There's a deep maltiness and a rice-like quality that I've found characterizes some of the higher-grown Ceylons. But besides that, this is a highly tannic tea that doesn't have much complexity.

I guess Wedgwood is in the business of teaware, not tea. This is passable but honestly, is it really much better than a mainstream British brand like PG Tips?

I would prefer PG Tips or Yorkshire tea.
