Mid-morning tea:

pure assam from Taylors of Harrogate (tea bag)
Leaf grade: Broken Orange Pekoe

I am not normally one for black tea, but a coworker offered me this tea bag, so I gratefully accepted. Since I am not accustomed to drinking black tea, I am fairly lost when it comes to what should go into my tea. Ordinarily I am a purist and prefer my tea as is, unadulterated, but I was willing to forgo my tea principles and try something different, despite doing so completely blind. I added milk and sugar. Perhaps I should have tried the tea before adding anything, but nevertheless, I did like the results. Assam has a strong tea flavor to it reminiscent of the characteristics of coffee: powerful, brisk, and full body.
