mycupoftbreakfastI've been sampling some bagged teas lately and My Cup of Tea's Breakfast Tea is my latest. My Cup of Tea is a UK company currently offering free shipping on orders over 20 pounds if Breakfast Tea is part of that order. (My keyboard doesn't appear to have the corresponding symbol for the British Pound, sorry, and that offer is limited to UK orders).

This particular offering comes in a silky tea bag (I couldn't find information at the website detailing the precise material used) and inside is a spoonful of CTC Assam, Ceylon and Darjeeling. I've never tried a CTC tea before, so this is another first for me. The odor of the tea is a little malty and astringent at once. It looks and smells nice.

I brewed for 4 minutes using boiling water. The flavor is quite good. It's malty but mellow and nicely sweet. The nice natural sweetness of the tea would be fine on its own, I enhanced it a bit with a couple of drops of stevia, but I actually think it would have been quite alright without it. The tea is nice and wet to the tastebuds, not at all dry or astringent on the tongue.

I really thought this was a good tasting bagged tea. It wasn't the most divine of tea experiences, as much of what I love most about tea involves a physical interaction with the loose leaves themselves, but I was impressed with how clear and good the tea tasted. There are times when a bagged tea is wonderfully handy, and there are some good quality bagged teas out there. It seems that My Cup of Tea has sourced out a good blend for their breakfast tea and took care that the bag isn't a hindrance at all to that taste coming through. I was sorry not to have another cup after I finished my first! Sturdy and malty, but wonderfully sweet and smooth, this makes a great wake up tea and was a pleasant surprise to me.
