|"Totally appropriate for a Summit meeting. Or breakfast."|
In my first cup, I met bull-headed Chancellors of the Exchequer, elusive press secretaries, seductive MPs, and even a few sincere statesmen and women. There was history in this tea, and I was part of it! How did Murchie's do it?
The broken, multi-colored leaves resembled a combination of black and golden tips, and smelled of jasmine. They produced a dark amber brew that looked like a typical cup of black tea, but tasted of flowers and currants and the tiniest bit of smoke...and so much more. I was impressed and anxious to see what Murchie's recipe was. Unfortunately, it was classified.
What Murchie's website did reveal was that No. 10 is a mixture of green and black teas, and that it is a bestseller and a prize winner. I can see why. It can be served with pride to friends, family, and heads of state from all corners of the world. All would find something to like about it. Despite its complexity, it is well-balanced and mild without tasting too delicate or weak. Murchie's has done it again. I rate this a 10.
