I like the tannin myself, it's the various tannins that differentiate the flavours of the various brands. I dislike anything heavy and swampy though, which is what Bushells and some Indonesian tea brands taste like.
You are meant to have tea straight black unsweetened, that's how the chinese originally conceived it -- I can't stand sugar or honey or milk in it.
By "you" i think you mean - you - Not me. The Russians seem to prefer honey and lemon while many of the British Isles' inhabitants prefer sugar and milk.
- the only time i like black tea without any addition is with Chinese food. i'd drink tea-flavoured lemonaide with caffeine, if it is up to me.
i like to improve on Chinese inventions personally. After all, their ships were originally Junk.
LOL, an awesome invention: Decaffeinated green tea.
I add some raw honey to it. It's lovely.
