Some friends of mine went to Ireland a few months back, and gave me a cup and saucer with shamrocks all over, very cute. They also added a few bags of this tea, because they said that they could not find any Irish Breakfast tea where they went. I finally made a cup, and it’s actually very nice and surprising! I tried it first without milk or sweetener, and it would have been fine that way, but the bag did suggest that it went well with milk, and that’s the way I’m drinking it now. Typically if I add milk, I add sweetener, but this is just great as it is.
