I can’t recall ever having an Irish Breakfast tea before. In my mind I had visions of Colin Ferrell swooping in (wearing only a cape) and bringing me breakfast in bed. Not so much, but it was still a pleasant tea – more like Sir Michael Gambon (in a suit) sitting down for a pleasant chat.

It has a nice “umph” to it and I’m putting it on the short list of tea bags I’d like to keep on hand for occassional cups. To keep the quasi-movie-themed tasting note going: “That’ll do tea, that’ll do.” NE

lol! At the image of Colin Ferrell! :)

I feel kinda bad that I didn’t say more about the tea, but I really have a weak base-knowledge of black teas and didn’t know how to describe it. “It’s black tea-ish” wouldn’t help me remember this one (or help anyone else out for that matter). But once the image popped in my mind and I couldn’t help myself. ;)

Erm, well…it’s different. I get the chamomile and mint upfront, but the rooibos is kinda hiding in the background. It’s an interesting evening time option. It has grown on me since the first time I’ve had it and I realized that I should steep it longer….but, it doesn’t make me want to dance (maybe dance like Elaine Benes, but not a suave foxtrot). And I’m not too sure that I’ll reorder even a sample tin again.

Sorry this is so choppy, but that’s kinda how I feel about it right now. M

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 8 min or more

Reading this, it occurs to me. Someone really needs to do a tea blend called Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. ;) No, I’m not sure what would be involved, but when we figure that out, we’ll know the recipe!

Profile

Bio

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
