Was a bit afraid to try this as I wasn't sure how I'd like unflavored black tea, considering I generally associate this with generic American iced tea which I loathe. Decided to use reward points to get one of these loose leaf tins, initially the smell was a certainly boring and had me concerned. However you start steeping it and it starts smelling more interesting. Add some sugar and milk and it actually tends to have a nutty like flavor. Very nice blend, will be keeping this in my regular stock.

Like I'm Back In Scotland!

Wanted to try something like the Assam tea. This has the same robust tea taste but slightly more smokier

I love this tea and drink it in the morning for 21 years by now. I have tried others but this in the one I really love. Full bodied, not a "parfumed" aroma, delightful with milk and no sugar. Two giant cups of it and that is my breakfast. I love the deep color in my glass pot while it brews, too. I buy it a lb at a time, and it doesn't even last that long :).
