drank Irish Breakfast Tea by Twinings
630 tasting notes

I can’t help but compare this to English Breakfast. It’s a little darker, a little malty-er, but still a robust black breakfast tea.

I actually might like it more! It’s missing the bite that English Breakfast sometimes has. It’s smoother and milder and just a great addition to an otherwise dull, rainy morning.

Also, the cheesy aftertaste is gone that I experienced yesterday. I definitely blame the tap water. It can no longer be trusted. No more funk here!

It’s equally as good as English Breakfast. But I still think the English has a little more get-up-and-go pep! But the Irish is definitely just as good. Yum!

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!

My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.

I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
