drank Irish Breakfast Tea by Twinings
2417 tasting notes

I usually drink this bagged tea only in decaf, but today called for caf, so I yoinked a bag from my hubby’s stash. (I don’t know how he brews it for 5 min – after 3 it was looking plenty dark enough for me! Then again, he’s a coffee drinker and I am not.)

It was very good with raw sugar and a splash of milk. It definitely has that “chewy,” malty that makes it almost a meal in and of iteself. Very good with outmeal raisin cookies too, btw.

my mom is an ex-coffee drinker and she brews this for 10 minutes!

Eeek! I bet it turns out about as black as, well, black coffee!

I’m also an ex-coffee drinker and I usually brew this for at least 12-15 minutes. Of course I add milk and sugar because otherwise it is a quite bitter.

I brew until I get the color I like which is pretty dark. But certainly not 5 minutes. It would be too bitter for me. I only add sugar, not an add-milk-to-tea enthusiast.
