Big pot with honey and 2% milk.
Hmm, this second cup is not as good as the first…
Making this with honey. Yum.
This is a black tea which makes me wish I could handle drinking black tea all the time. As is, a small cuppa with breakfast and the rest of the pot for my plants is the way it goes.
I tried this tea on a whim several years ago and was completely floored by it. I had never had such a smokey tea before, and I was living in a very snowy area. It was the perfect winter breakfast tea. It was also delicious with a little Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai Latte, but Bh has since changed the recipe so it might not be quite the same anymore.
Compared to Lapsang Souchong, Scottish Breakfast is milder. The smokiness will still make your tongue tingle, but it won’t overwhelm your senses like L S can (and won’t make your tea cupboard smell like woodsmoke). That said, if you don’t know how you feel about a brisk cup of black tea, be wary of this one; you might be able to cut with milk or something, but it doesn’t sweeten well. This is a cup for those who don’t care for sweet things to begin with.
Starting the morning with this, for a jolt, but then moving beyond the office teabags to the loose leaf that I brought.
As much as I have been consuming this tea at the office, lately, I think I need to bring in some tea of my own…loose leaf, preferably…maybe once they give me a desk…
Somewhere in that mess, I broke 1000 Tasting Notes. Yay!

Whoa, I was not expecting such an overwhelming scent. It smelled like smoked paprika or even a cured meat. Maybe it would have been better if it was lighter. The barista put way too much tea in the tea bag. It looked like more than 1/3 cup.
I love Peet’s Irish Breakfast tea, and stop at the store almost every morning for a cuppa. Unfortunately, here in Southern California, it seems that it is easy for people to confuse Irish and Scottish, because I periodically get served this tea, which I DO not like at all.
I have read many reviews of the tea, and can appreciate the flavor descriptors that everyone uses, but honestly, to me, this tea somehow tastes just like fish!
I love this tea. I drink it every morning. I do not like tannins, so I only let it steep in the pot for about a minute, but it is still nice and strong. I drink it with sweetener and soy milk (unflavored/unsweetened) since I am lactose-intolerant.
I find this Lapsang Souchong to be somewhat less bitter than other’s I’ve tried. Really though, I feel this tea is a blending tea and is a bit strong on it’s own.
