drank Irish Breakfast by Wegmans
464 tasting notes

I do not have enough basic black teas in my cupboard. In fact, until I bought this I had no unflavored black tea in my house. That had to be fixed! I’m fortunate to have a grocery store with a good tea selection, so I picked up a couple of ounces of this on my last shopping trip.

This is a good Irish Breakfast. A strong Assam with lots of maltiness. There was a lemon-y note as the tea cooled. I really enjoyed it, and it makes me wonder how the tea would taste cold brewed. I didn’t add milk to my cup, but I’m guessing it would make a nice addition. Overall, a really nice cup, and something I’ll probably reach for on a regular basis as a morning tea.

I really like the wegmans tea selection!! I love being able to scoop my tea into the bulk bags! What is your favorite wegmans loose leaf?

Veronica

I do, too. My favorite so far has been the chocolate chai. So yummy. Next time I think I’m going to pick up the jasmine pearls. What I really love is being able to buy as little as I want, so sampling is easy.

Hi Veronica – is this their organic version? I was just going to post a rating for that but didn’t want to duplicate if it’s the same tea —

Jude – I just checked my label and it doesn’t appear to be organic. I wish it were! I’ll have to ask the next time I’m shopping and see if they’ll start carrying the organic version

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.
