Everyone has his/her own tea preference. I read reviews before purchasing Tea Forte products, but it is really what you prefer. That being said, this is my opinion. I have purchased many high-end teas from various "name brand" companies and this is my favorite English Breakfast tea. I have read that others don't think it is strong enough. If you steep the infuser longer than the 3-5 minutes before adding anything to it, it will be a much stronger tea. I personally leave the infuser in for over ten minutes before adding milk, no sweetener.
I am so happy I found this tea!!! I love it so much. It’s beautiful presentation and a delicious taste. I have purchased multiple times and it’s consistently great. It’s true English breakfast. I drink with milk. My husband doesn’t. And we love it either way. Excellent tea!!!
I love a good cup of tea in the morning with a slice of lemon. It's my ultimate indulgence. But when I spend $1 per bag for a cup of tea, I expect excellence. I'm really sorry I didn't get it. I ordered the English Breakfast tea. The packaging is well done, the bags with the little leaf are darling, but I didn't feel the product delivered. I always pre-heat the cup with hot water and then dump the water out, then add fresh hot water with the tea bag. I brewed it the right amount of time. But the tea was only average, dare I say only on par with what I could pick up at the grocery store. I'm really sorry, because I wanted it to be sensational.
