I LOVE this stuff! I misplaced it for a while but it has been found! Ahhhh! I need a wakeup today and there are two things that help me wake up and that is TEA and MUSIC so for the rest of today I declare a TEA and MUSIC Challenge! It’s been a while since the last time I did this but it seemed like people that did participate had fun with it! Who’s with me!?

Anyhow…

For this tea…I find this song to be fitting…

I give you a challenge: Read Finnegans Wake

???

I don’t read many books…usually collections of poetry, reference, magazine articles, etc.

Sounds like I would get rather lost…so…I would certainly see how this would be a challenge! LOL :)

I decided to ‘meet’ with ‘my friend Finnigan’ this morning! I forgot how bold he was! Lucky for me…I like BOLD. I’m ready for another great TEA Day!!! Are you!?

Much of the product description mentions the cream and sugar additions but most of you know I drink my tea plain.

This Irish Breakfast Tea is wonderful! It has a great flavor. It’s very tasty. It’s bold and full and if I really try can pick out the slightest bit of floral taste hiding underneath.

Finnigan is my friend!

2nd Cup…I’m not liking this as much as I remember but it is still pretty good…just lowering a little bit and then will share with friends!

Added a splash of chocolate milk – just because I have it from yesterday – I don’t drink milk standalone let alone with my tea – so my little bit I bought will last forever – or until I throw it out!

With the splash of Chocolate Milk – it gives this a nice latte type taste but the spices are still intensifying which was a surprise!

Ohhhhhhhhhhh! Juicy! With a little bit of spice! Very nice!

It smells like a cherry cigar – very sweet.

It is a reddish brown. Very rich.

It’s Rooibos but a juicy-sweet cherry kind of Rooibos. It is slightly spicy…not sure if I am picking up on the cinnamon or the cardamom more…but there is just enough and not over done with any one ingredient!

I like this very much!

I’d not paid attention to if I’d had a darjeeling tea before, so I figured I’d get a cup of this with lunch to see if I could note anything of interest. Luckily, the place that I had lunch at is skilled in the ways of tea making, and actually uses a timer to make sure things steep correctly before serving it!

The tea was good. Lighter than other black teas, floral notes, mild, with very little astringency. I know Adagio offers several darjeelings, so I’d like to try samples of the different ones at some point to learn what the commonalities are between darjeelings. That, and I want to try samples of other black teas to learn more about regions, etc, and to know more about a black tea by taste. All that is to come in the future, though….

I wonder how this compares to their “Ooooh Darjeeling”. Similar name, similar flavor and aroma profiles?
