With much homework to contend for my time, I decided to continue my procrastination by heading to Whole Foods Market for a box of tea. I initially had my mind set on purchasing a selection of Mighty Leaf assorted teas, but for the sake of writing about a new tea, made the decision to spend my tea allowance on Taylors of Harrogate’s English Breakfast Tea.

I had been looking for a good morning tea that I could supplant my soda habit with. An English Breakfast tea is a pretty good, all-purpose tea. I prefer mine taken with milk and sugar. English Breakfast teas are a blend, and the Taylors of Harrogate’s version comes from black teas from India and Africa.

When drinking tea with milk and sugar, it is often hard to make out the natural flavor of the tea, but in this case, I was able to distinguish an ever-so-slight taste that was unmasked by my additions. This black tea has a bolder flavor than what I recall other English Breakfasts having. It reminded me more of an Irish Breakfast. The taste, while bold, was quite enjoyable, and was assuaged as the temperature of the tea cooled.
