I expected big things from this tea because I think Clipper’s Everyday Tea is the best tea bag in the mid-range market. Unlike boxes of Clipper tea bags that are available in just about every supermarket, I had to search extensively around London for Clipper’s loose English Breakfast tea.
The tea is highly broken (almost like ground coffee), and when steeped it produces a very strong brew that requires a good splash of milk to tame its tannins. While the aroma and the taste of the tea is OK, it lacks anything unique or distinctive to make it particularly memorable.
My rating: 2.5/5
