Oy. After feeling like I had the black death for a few days I’m beginning to feel semi-human again. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, autumn and I do not get along. Anyway, I received several samples while I was sick, and I am excited to try them.
This is a nice Irish Breakfast. Stronger than some, but nothing too over the top. It uses tea leaves that have gone through the CTC process, so it’s difficult to pick out nuances in the tea. Still, it gives the caffeine kick I want in the morning, and there is no bitterness to be had. Just a smooth steady cup of tea. I added sugar to my second cup but ignored the milk. I did like it more with sugar, but that could be my sweet tooth talking.
Thanks Zen Tea for the sample! Trying new teas is always fun. :)
