Slightly embarrassed to realize I’ve been calling this an Irish Breakfast when in fact it is their Scottish Breakfast. Whatever its called, I like it. Needs to cool a bit to get the maximum flavor effect…that is, its a good slurping tea, none of this prissy sipping thing! Strong flavor. Good amount of astringency to leave your mouth refreshed. Malty, as it claims to be. I drink it without sugar and don’t think sugar would go well with it.
