After going out and doing all my running around which included stopping by the cable store, which always seems to be busy, I was more then ready to brew up a mug of tea and catch up on my blogs. The tea I grabbed today is from BOH who happens to be the largest plantation in Malaysia and they have their own brand of teas.

This particular tea happens to be a full leaf black tea. And when they claim that it is a full leaf tea, BOH wasn't kidding. These are some of the largest black tea leaves that I have had the pleasure of coming across. They are a dark brown in color with a sweet tobacco/caramel aroma. There aren't any brewing instructions on the site so I just used the black tea setting on my Breville and let it steep for 2 minutes.

It brews up into a lighter goldish brown liquor with a smoky tobacco aroma. The flavor is also light and rather naturally sweet so if you do add sweetener be sure to use a light touch. It has just a bit of smoke and the primary taste is caramel. This makes for an enjoyable cup of tea that is light enough to enjoy in the afternoons or early evening.

The price is very reasonable and I could see keeping some around for use in the afternoon. This is the first time that I have tried a tea from Malaysia and I have to admit that I am impressed.
