Oh yeah baby. This, right here, is myyyyyy kinda tea. Super ROBUST STRONG tea, that’s almost like a punch in the face. But is it bitter? No, no, no! Sure, I have fun trying out dessert teas, but when it comes right down to it, it’s cups like this that made me a tea lover to begin with.
The raisin note reminds me of Premium Taiwanese Assam, except without the cocoa or cinnamon and with more KICK to it. It’s technically 9:30PM right now, but I can definitely see myself reaching for this in the morning for that kick in the pants. I tend to crave sweet more in the evening so I added half a teaspoon of golden sugar in a 12oz serving, but it definitely does NOT need it, just what I was in the mood for at the moment.
A toasty sort of taste follows the raisin note and lingers in your throat. I’m loooovin’ it. This is heaven in a cup.
Cupboard staple? Yes, yes, yes.
Delicious. If this is how Ireland drinks their tea, then I gotta get meself on a plane.
Edit: This tea is very good value. The second infusion was just as strong as the first. This could easily take a third, maybe even a fourth.
