14 Tasting Notes
This is a good tea for something easy to pop in the water and hit the road with. You get a lot of caffeine, and a flavor that’s not too bitter like tea bags tend to be. benefits from a little cream and honey.
It has a boldness of flavor which can be nice in the morning but which I tend to avoid.
The liqueur is dark reddish and inky. It will stain your teeth, the glass, and your newly pressed white shirt. It will make your breathe smell like a compost heap. You could say that all teas do this to some extent, which is true, but Whittard’s breakfast blend seems to excel in “most like ink” category.
Great value, color, flavor, aroma. My favorite tea from Upton and in general. I always make sure to keep this stocked and it’s the first Oolong I give those who have never tried it before.
The dry leaves are very aromatic: being floral, malty, and slightly vegetal. I could just fall asleep forever with my nose in the tin. As far as the taste, it’s thick and delicious. Highly recommended to try if you get the chance.
