I’m extra sleepy this morning. It’s been raining for two days straight here since that tropical storm is passing through, and I think it’s making our dogs and cats anxious or crazy. They’ve all been so ornery and into everything! The foster kittens were up all night long, and I was afraid that if I put them out of my room and shut the door that I wouldn’t hear what they were destroying. Even our laid-back greyhound has been a ‘velcro dog’ and is glued to my side, following me from room to room. Needless to say, I need the strongest cup of tea I can find this morning!

I’ve tried Peet’s Pride of the Port and loved it, so I am sure that I will like this tea. The dry leaves smell lightly sweet and malty, and the tea itself smells much the same, with the addition of a light floral note. The tea has a strong and sweet malty flavor and finish. There is a heavy malty aftertaste that is just wonderful – this will surley wake me up this morning! There is a slight bitterness, but nothing that a little milk and sugar won’t take care of. And this certainly is an ideal tea for milk and sugar – it is just perfect. It’s been a long time since I’ve had an Irish Breakfast, and this one is exceptionally good! Thank you to Serenity for this wonderful sample!

Irish Breakfast blends have a reputation for being robust and flavorful, and Peet’s Irish Breakfast? Check and check! It has a sweetness and an astringency; a subtle malt and fresh floral flavor; a strength and delicacy. One reason I love tea so much is that there can be so much going on in a single cup, in a single cup.

I love this tea. I drink it every morning. I do not like tannins, so I only let it steep in the pot for about a minute, but it is still nice and strong. I drink it with sweetener and soy milk (unflavored/unsweetened) since I am lactose-intolerant.

Great tea. It’s my preferred breakfast tea. Best Irish Breakfast blend I’ve tried. Excellent when made a little strong with milk and sugar
