I am new to the tea world. After months of trying all types I finally settled on black tea as my main go to. The only complaint I have with any English breakfast tea I’ve tried is the slight malty/caramel taste. Not that it tastes bad but it adds a slight sweetness I’m not a fan of. This tea is the solution to my problem! This is a pure black tea flavor, with no malty/caramel taste at all. It does have perhaps a slight sweet aftertaste but it is really minimal. This is absolutely my favorite tea. I’m so glad I found it!
