Received this as a sample in my order. :)

Nice and hearty cup. This proves that Stacy has talent with the basics as well, it’s nice and strong — but not overpoweringly — and gives you a very thick mouthful which I like, especially in the mornings.

The second infusion remains strong and flavorful as well.

Overall I prefer her Irish Breakfast over this, so if you’re going to choose one breakfast tea from Butiki, I’d go with the Organic Irish Breakfast. :) As far as English Breakfasts go though, this is one of the better ones I’ve had.

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
