This is a really good Irish Breakfast tea. It’s simple and steady and just… good. I guess all tea drinkers need one or two basic teas (black, green, or otherwise) that they can turn to time after time. When it comes to strong black tea this is my choice.

I bumped my rating up a bit because I finally wrote out my rating system (although it’s still rather vague) and I feel like this tea could be a mainstay in my pantry for a while.

They have this at my almost local tea shop, Tin Roof Teas. I need to give it a try, especially since my daughter is marrying a young tea lover from Ireland!

I have always wanted to go to Ireland. I told my husband one day I’m going to go there,sit in a pub for hours on end and just listen to the other customers talk. :) Oh, and drink tea, of course.

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
