It felt a little chilly this morning when hubby and I went out to pick up a few things for a home improvement project. When I came home I saw that it is actually in the low sixties, but hey. Everything is relative.
The cool temp made me want a plain black tea with my breakfast when we got home. I picked this one mostly because I don’t want it to get old and stale and I haven’t had it in a long time.
It was a great tea to choose because it is doing everything I wanted it to do. I can drink this one plain because it is such a mild Irish Breakfast. It does still taste with milk and sugar if you want to add it. It probably wouldn’t satisfy someone who likes a nice, strong Assam to kick them in the tuckus in the mornings, but it is a great strength for me.
When I read about the toasted cheese and tea at the end of I Was A Rat, I had to smile! And I also had to celebrate that warm feeling and happy smile with a toasted cheese sandwich (perfect, by the way, from my new Breville Smart Grill and Griddle hubby encouraged me to get!) and a pot of good tea. I knew the old cobbler and his wife wouldn’t have had a foofy French tea, so I chose this milder-than-most Irish breakfast that we like so well! Very nice! Milk and sugar, of course!
Snowy morning, fire blazing, and tea waiting! The starter tea for today is Irish Breakfast. This is the youngest daughter’s favorite, next to Golden Monkey by Harney and Sons. She has tried other IB teas but finds them a bit too strong. With milk and sugar, this one is just right. Round and a little bit fruity, without the “bite” than some IB’s have. A lovely tea, this one is a little milder than the one by Harney and Sons, my all-time favorite tea company.
This was our third tea party tea today. This Irish Breakfast is milder than most, but is also our favorite. Like most brekkies, it takes milk and sugar very well – indeed, it is blended with just that in mind!
Another Wednesday tea party tea! This is the best Irish Breakfast I have had anywhere, hands down. The leaves are large and there is so much gold. This isn’t as bitter as some Irish Breakfast teas can be, and there is no smoke like you would find in an English Breakfast. Wonderful with additions, but still drinkable without. Still, I like my breakfast teas WITH, thank you very much! :)
A great tea! I think I like this one better than Harney and Sons. And best of all, Southern Season is having an inventory clearance sale right now and I think this one was about half price! Too good to pass up. I have to keep this one stocked as my youngest daughter drinks it every day. Don’t worry – the caffeine won’t stunt her growth. She is already my height and her tea drinking sister is 6 inches taller than I am! By the way, tea is full of flouride, and my two tea drinkers have never had a cavity, my two non-tea drinkers have, unfortunately.
Second pot of the day is youngest DD’s favorite! A very nice tea, and my favorite Irish Breakfast so far.
