Like all our teas, you should open a fresh bag + immediately sniff its contents. Why? Thats the aroma of quality... If you are a lover of straight bold black tea fresh from the pot; then you will find it hard to understand why Lady Hamilton, (all that time ago) put milk in her tea while at sea.
Why? Lady Hamilton needed to mask the insipid bitter taste of her tea in which the quality was diminished almost to the undrinkable state, such was the terrible storage conditions at sea. But sadly she passed this milk tradition down generations.
But don’t worry. You can drink your tea black as it was originally intended or you can enjoy this brew with milk.
