141 tasting notes

A co-worker of mine is originally from Ireland and she brought me a few bags of this to try.

This tea is packaged in the traditional white, circular filter-paper teabag. The fragrance is light but definitely creamy with notes of pepper.

Upon adding the boiling water, it was immediately black which foreshadowed the strength of this tea. It was highly astringent with an underlying malt. I don’t normally add anything to my tea, but this one needed a little sweetener and cream to get through.

The power of this tea took me off guard at first, but it grew on me. If anything, it will wake you up!

My daughter brought me two Bewley teas from Dublin last fall. Clipper Gold was actually frightening. The instant the water hit the tea, it turned dark and you could smell the powerful aroma right away! Irish Afternoon was nice, though. CG had scared me so badly that I only steeped it for about 2 minutes, and it really needed more. If you want to try either or both of those, I will be happy to send some.
