Tea of the Day!

Assam BOP (Broken Orange Pekoe) 2/5

Assam is one of your basic plain black teas (loose, it's like plain Lipton Tea, just better quality.) Honey gives no improvement, so stick with sugar if you'd like a little sweetness to it. If you're in the habit of leaving the tea in the cup, it will get strong to the point of bitterness (which can be good). A no fuss, no frills tea.

Extra: Launched in 1869, the world's only surviving tea clipper is the Cutty Shark. Today, more than 15 million people have visited the restored ship at a custom-built dry dock in Greenwich, England.
