From Angelina's Teas

Ingredients: Premium black tea, Calendula petals, Daisy White, Natural flavours.

Here’s to Ireland, the country that can lay claim to the honor of having the most tea drinkers per capita in the entire world! The average Irishman, when not hoisting a Guinness, imbibes an average of 6 cups a day. Even with the country’s relatively small population of 3.9 million, that’s almost 24 million cups a day! Tea and Ireland go way back. The drink was first introduced to the country in 1835 by British traders when Ireland was still part of the British Empire. Maintaining a secure supply was never a problem as Ireland relied on British importers for a steady flow of the drink – that is until WWII. During the war, Britain was forced to ration foodstuffs of all kinds, tea included, throughout the Empire. The problem for Irish tea-drinkers arose when part way through the war, much to the consternation of the British government, Ireland declared itself neutral in the global conflict. The British retaliated for what they saw as an act of subversion by cutting their tea ration down to almost nothing. Undaunted, the enterprising Irish government set up its own tea importing company, Tea Importers (Eire) Ltd., and tea drinkers throughout the Emerald Isle rejoiced! In honor of the tea drinking spirit of the hardy Irish, we’ve developed this good strong blend. This blend, like most tea consumed in Ireland these days is made from East African and Ceylon varieties with a special addition – a good strong Assam. The addition of the Assam adds a depth to the tea that is beautifully offset by the addition of cream, another Irish favorite. This is one tea that’ll have you standing up singing Danny Boy in no time!

This is one of the new teas from Angelina’s. I don’t know why, but when I read the description I started craving this tea. Maybe it’s the cold, rainy weather outside. Anyway, this tea is nice. I was expecting more of a creamy vanilla flavor, but it’s more of a milky caramel flavor. Very strong black tea base with a definite milkiness about it, like fresh milk had been added. I did add milk and sweetener, and it brought out some caramel hints. I think this will be a nice tea to enjoy on cold mornings this fall and winter!

-Dry blend has small grainy black tea leaves with large black tea leaves and twigs with a few white petals.
-Dry leaves smell lightly malty with a faint hint of milk. Tea liquor aroma is of strong black tea and warm creamy milk.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy very dark brown color.
-Extremely robust flavor with an almost bitter finish. Light milky caramel aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. Robust flavor with hints of creamy milk and sweet caramel.

My fave from Angelina’s is the Scottish Caramel Pu-erh. I bet I’d like this one for days when I don’t want to fuss with it. Mmm I am “on hiatus” but I think I’m visiting Angelina’s with my tea group next weekend, and it would be rude not to buy something!

I absolutely love Angelina’s Maple Blueberry and highly recommend it! I’ll have to try the Scottish Caramel Pu-erh, thanks for the recommendation!
