I love Irish breakfast, so I threw this sample into my last Upton order. I steeped for 3 minutes – I usually err on the short side with a CTC tea like this – they get bitter in a hurry! My opinion – eh, it’s just all right. Not a lot of nuance, but that’s ok in a breakfast tea (it’s all I can do to make tea without spilling water on myself in the morning!) It could be stronger. Based on the ratings here, I’m going to give it a try at 4 minutes.
