Newby English Breakfast Tea

Newby English Breakfast Tea is described as: "A rich amber cup that is brisk and full-bodied, followed by a prolonged, spicy and malty aftertaste."

Although the tea comes in tea bags it actually tastes as good as the finest quality loose leaf tea.

This is because Newby employs some unique natural fibre silken pyramid bags that are biodegradable which allows the full flavour of the tea to come to the fore.

Let's talk about the taste. There is a subtle hint of oriental spices in the overall taste and my wife identified a certain level of natural sweetness that permeated the tea. "It's tastes almost like honey," she pointed out.

And after a moment's quiet reflection and tasting I had to agree. Rather than maltiness we detected that sweet flavour as being more akin to honey. But individual tastes do vary. And either way, it is undoubtedly delicious.

There is also a hint of fruitiness to the finish.

This was very much to our liking and although it is billed as an English Breakfast Tea it is equally delicious at any time of day.

Newby teas are now available at Waitrose and Newby blends and retails a wide range of teas and tisanes.
