A nice morning tea

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body.

This tea is rather light for an Irish breakfast tea. It doesn't easily go bitter and only has a little astringency. I get the nut flavours, some maltiness, along with woody notes that I would usually associate with oolongs. Very nice with breakfast or to warm you up in the winter.

Good wake-me-up

I think what stood out for me was the smooth, creaminess of this tea. I drink it with toast and jam or hummus, and it "softens" all the textures and flavours in my tongue. It also has a nutty taste that I really like.

I have always loved Irish Breakfast Tea and for someone going from store bought tea in tea bags this was a real treat. My old favorite tea reached a whole new level.

This blend has a slightly sweet edge to it over a wonderful complex mix of nuanced flavours. even though it's not overly strong, Its an excellent tea to accompany your toast and jam.
