drank Irish Breakfast by Adagio Teas
161 tasting notes

I threw in a little Irish Breakfast on top of yesterday’s leftover Keemun Concerto. Yum. This tea is comforting and heavy…malty and smokey. Fantastic for a cold, rainy and generally yucky day. Taken with milk and a little Truvia. Does anyone else have an opinion on this Truvia stuff? I came across it by way of my local tea shop. They have packets out on their tables with the Splenda, raw sugar, etc. Just curious if this is the latest and greatest in the world of sweeteners.

Truvia – supposed to be more pure form of Stevia. I’ve not had Truvia but I have had Stevia, and it has a horrible aftertaste. Theoretically, the processing that Truvia undergoes gets rid of the aftertaste.

How was it?

LENA

not too bad in a splenda-like way. i didn’t use very much in this cup, so i’m not a very good judge yet.

Danielle

i usually use Agave nectar in my teas…but if i ever use sugar i use Truvia. I never had a taste for splenda…i thought that it had that funny after taste. So when i use Truvia, i only use a half a packet and i think it tastes fine. I dont notice a yucky after taste like in splenda.

@Danielle, your 1st sentence is contradictory. Sugar is not stevia. You are right in only using half a packet. Stevia is 2x as sweet as sugar.

Cofftea, I’m pretty sure she just meant sweetener, instead of sugar in that first sentence.

Jillian

Whenever I use a sweetener I prefer to go natural, usually with honey. I try to avoid artificial sweeteners if possible because many of them contain aspartame which is a bit dodgy health-wise.

Cofftea

@Jillian, absolutely. Aspartame is notoriously known for making depression worse for those who suffer from it. I go w/ stevia because it’s the only natural calorie free option… although honey is very healthy for you. I’d love to try ROT’s honeys w/ tea in them.

@cofftea, is it your mission each day to get on here and piss on and irritate people on purpose? I have read sooooo many of your comments to people that are just rude. Does this make u feel good or what?
