I am egg-zausted from attending a performance of the Duchess of Malfi last night – talk about intense! It is a strong tea, milk and sugar kind of morning. I thought this one would be fun to try – thanks SO MUCH ashmanra!
This is a very complex and interesting Irish Breakfast! I am getting the feeling that Grace Rare Teas are telling it like it is :) The offerings I’ve had thus far have not tasted like anything I’ve ever tasted!
I taste a true tea flavor, strong but not astringent or bitter – really smooth, full bodied – malty but not overly so, and for some reason, I taste the most gentle of cardamom or nutmeg? flavors. Sort of like cardamom or nutmeg was steeped in milk – or like rice pudding! Very subtle. I know this is not a flavored tea so it must be some unique quality of the tea. It is delicious.
I don’t think I have any choice but to put a leetle more tea into my brewer basket and make another cup!
Mmmmmmmmmm! I’m still getting that unique cardamom-y flavor (and I am f-l-y-i-n-g! This one sneaks up on ya! How can something that tastes so good and sweet and lovely wake you up like this!?!!?!?)
It is truly frightening how much delicious tea I’ve been drinking courtesy of ashmanra!!! Thank you once again!
