I used the directions on the package to brew this one. It ended up being a VERY dark brown color, almost like I was drinking black coffee. The flavors were VERY STRONG IN YOUR FACE and lacked any nuances. I will try with less time if I make this again. I do enjoy a hearty English Breakfast but this is not for me.
With an annual per-capita consumption of more than 3 kg, the Irish are still the world champions when it comes to drinking tea. They have a special preference for very strong blends, which may happily contain a good portion of local whiskey. Following this tradition, we are producing a special quality in our house which only consists of the seasons strongest broken teas. A deep dark infusion with a highly spicy and malty character – a definite must for each lover of such tea types and, of course, for all friends of the Green Island.
