Boh is the equivalent of Twinings in South-East Asia, and this tin caught my eye on one of my forays through the local supermarkets. Its a loose leaf broken Orange Pekoe, so I used the Bodum infuser for this.
Taste-wise, its a fairly standard tasting black tea, I brewed it strong at first, 1 tsp for 5 min in 1/2 cup water, and then mixed in 1/2 cup hot milk to get a really milky black tea with no sugar.
I expected better from its packaging, but I found it to taste perfectly ordinary – no particular characteristic really stood out other than being similar to a standard breakfast teabag in flavour and taste.
It seems like it will make a good weekday breakfast tea, or situations when you just need to have a nice hot drink on-the-go, and aren’t looking for something to savour slowly.
I’d recommend trying this mixed due to its mildness, whether with other teas, coffee, or making your own fruity blends. In fact, I find combining tea & coffee gives a nice extra boost, and the flavour of the tea is mild enough that it will go nicely with an medium roast coffee.
