Whoops! Completely forgot that this A. existed and B. was a breakfast blend, so now I guess I need to compare it to the Scottish Breakfast to see how it measures up.

In terms of quick brewing it certainly seems to be fine, although I think it comes out a bit lighter than the Scottish and Irish breakfasts. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing. The taste definitely doesn’t pack the punch of either of the above two, but it’s also more nuanced with a fruity aftertaste that I find kind of pleasant. It would be nice for mornings where I am actually feeling kind of awake, well-rested, and not full of hate for the world. Sadly, those never happen.

That’s the perfect description of being a “non-morning person.” I like to think that I’m a nice person overall, but in the morning I just hate everyone and everything.

I wasn’t a morning person until I had children. Then it was thrust upon me.

LOL! One of the many reasons I do not want children ;)

Profile

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
