Their tea is way better than David's flavored water.

I think it would be good. As per: https://www.thespruceeats.com/hong-kong ... ipe-766128

Ingredients: 2 cups water
4 tablespoons black tea leaves, preferably a bold Ceylon tea
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk, or to preferred taste

Ceylon is a strong black tea from Sri Lanka. The English breakfast in this post is a strong black tea from India.

Any difference?


Loose leaf tea is usually less expensive and of better quality than bagged tea. Red Rose is probably very "powdery" compared to the tea from this post. Loose leaf is also eco-friendly as you are buying in bulk.

I can't speak to this particular tea because I haven't tried it yet. But Red Rose (and similar grocery store teas, like Lipton) are pretty much the bottom of the barrel IMO. I agree with the other poster that describe them as powdery, and would add that they generally don't have much depth of flavour. Higher quality, pure black teas hit much more of your tongue, especially the middle, sides, and back.

There are a bunch of types of black tea. Three common ones:
Ceylon - from Sri Lanka, more citrusy
Darjeeling - from India (higher altitude), more grape-y and floral
Assam - from India (lowlands), more Earthy/nutty. This is this tea!

You can also broadly categorize black tea as Ceylon (from Sri Lanka, more citrusy) and Darjeeling (from India, more floral). This one is the latter, and some reviewers commented on how strange the floral taste was to them - I'm guessing they'd only had Ceylon tea before!)

This isn't a deal on Darjeeling tea, btw. English Breakfast is a blend of Indian Assam tea

I just received my 1Lbs and I am Very pleased. I can usually tell it will be a good tea when I transfer to tea tins. If there is a lot of dust, the tea will not be as good. (This Tea did not have a lot of dust.)

I would give this VAHDAM tea 7.5/10

to give you an idea of what I like :
David's Breakfast Tea (6/10) (I drink it but the leaves are too dry)
https://www.davidstea.com/ca_en/tea/org ... 59148.html

Camellia Sinensis (9/10)
https://camellia-sinensis.com/en/lapsan ... ganic/2231 (Extremely smokey tea... the peat monster of teas)

Murchies English Breakfast (8.5/10)
https://www.murchies.com/product/englis ... loose-tea/

Murchies Assam Superior Golden Loose Tea (9.5/10 (almost zero dust)
https://www.murchies.com/product/assam- ... loose-tea/
