73
drank Irish Breakfast by Twinings
47 tasting notes

Note: This is a review for the bagged version.

It is currently 7:30pm. I have an exam tomorrow, so I made myself a thermos tumbler full of Irish Breakfast with a splash of warm milk to keep me awake. It’s a malty, masculine tea and goes very well with milk, and sugar too, if you feel like it.

Twinings version of Irish Breakfast is, like others noted, on the strong side, somewhat rough; the “drill sergeant” metaphor isn’t far off. I have yet to try this straight, and when I do I will write another tasting note. I am on a search for my favorite Irish Breakfast, and plan on trying several different companies before I order my loose leaf tin. I wouldn’t count this one out.

This is my husband’s favorite tea. I bought him a box of Harney & Sons bagged Irish Breakfast for Christmas but he hasn’t opened it yet, and probably won’t until the Twinings runs out. I’m curious to see how they compare.

Ooh, when you do, please let me know. I think Twinings is stronger, or that’s what I hear. Harney & Sons is one of the companies I would like to try… But I can’t spend any more money until next month!
