My first cup, and I can’t find the steeping time for it. I went with 3 minutes, which seems to be okay. No bitterness really. I don’t know what i am supposed to be looking for with this tea as I am not an Irish or English breakfast drinker. I do know that it has a nice black tea backdrop, with a subtle creamy flavor and only the slightest touch of vanilla. I do wish i could taste more vanilla and more of the Irish breakfast notes, but I am enjoying it nonetheless.
