Well… Teaequalsbliss’ note sure makes me eager to try this one! This is the second of my three teas in the March Amoda tasting box.

The tea smells like a deliciously flavoured black… ahh, screw it, I want to try it now. Please hold.

Ok. Well… this one is STRONG! Definitely astringent; I’m going to try 2.5 minutes next time. However, I’m liking the flavour. It’s malty and rich, flavoured without tasting flavoured, if that makes sense. I think it would be fabulous with a bit of milk, but that requires too much effort (i.e. going downstairs) for me to bother with right now.

In some ways, it reminds me a bit of Lupicia’s Cookie. I wonder if they have the same base tea or something. I can’t say that I know what Irish Cream tastes like, but I really am enjoying this tea. Not really getting any mintiness from it (should I be?). Yum!

ETA: Second infusion wasn’t too shabby! I’ve gotta remember to try this tea again on Sunday for St. Patrick’s Day :)

My first Irish Cream! After smelling it I was pretty eager to give it a try. It’s not really an afternoon tea though – it’d be better suited as “slap-me-in-the-face-to-wake-me-up morning tea”.

I love how strong the aroma is. Malty, and creamy. When I sip it, I find it to be a little astringent, but not undrinkably so (thankfully because I can be a wimp that way). Mostly I’m getting astringent malt in each sip, with a creamy finish and some earthy notes.

I would never have bought this on my own (although I shouldn’t really let $9 shipping deter me as that’s starting to be the standard with the new US rates too) so I’m happy I was given this. I need teas to be dropped in my lap otherwise I might miss out on something wonderful.

the next time i head to ottawa (i’ll likely post something in my tasting notes) feel free to bug me about an order. Id be happy to split an order with you and mail yours out to you to save on shipping/quantity of tea. My parents are still in Ottawa so i should get out there at least twice a year…though they’d prefer every bloody weekend haha

Kittenna

Agreed – definitely more of a morning tea! I enjoyed it though, in spite of the astringency. Hoping that knocking off 30s helps.

Cavocorax

Thanks for the offer! If I have any tea monies available I will definitely consider it.

I think that if I moved to Toronto it would be a awesome (terrible) thing because I could combine for more orders and arrange swaps. Seems like there are a lot of you guys out that way. :P

Sil

please move to toronto! we need more friends to split orders with hahaha. It’s a bit of good and bad. we place a few more orders than we might individualls but we spend less overall and don’t often have to buy 50g/2oz to ourselves. so i know at least i really love basically getting to have lots and lots of samples!

Cavocorax

Haha. Good to know! I’ll be sure to let you guys know when we know we have to move. Tea people is one of the benefits to such a big (for me) move.

SIPDOWN!

also..it really sucks when you’ve had such a crappy day that you miss reading a tasting note that says don’t over steep it! soooo yeaaah.. steeped this for 3 mins and it’s a little on the astringent side. however if i ignore that initial taste, i can spot the delicious tea that this would be if i hadn’t goofed on the brewing sigh There’s a malty creaminess to this tea that screams DELICIOUS!

Thanks to kittenna for letting me try this…even if i did screw it up.

You don’t have enough for a 2nd session?
Sounds like Kittenna might need to hook you up with another sample, so you can try again! : )

Sil

haha no. but the resteep wasn’t too bad since i watched that one a little closer.

Kittenna

I gave her 2 cups worth! :P Apologies for not noting instructions on the bag. Not my fault she uses it all for one infusion, haha.

Sil

Kittenna…nu uh you gave me one sil cup :p

Sil

Seem times I make “half a cup” samples but seem times when I know ill like it, I just make the one cup grin

Terri HarpLady

I don’t have a single 8 oz cup in the house! They’re either little 4 oz-ers, or 12-16oz

Sil

Terri – everytime that i buy a 6-8oz mug, Ian managed to break it (accidently of course) but as a result i’m left with only 12-16 ones. They’re fantastic! but it means a cup for me is typically 2 “normal” cups haha

Terri HarpLady

Correction: I do have one actual 8oz cup, handpainted & given to me as a gift from a dear artist friend from Macedonia, Vesna Delevska. We have the same birthday week, and sometimes she comes & paints during my shows. Her work is amazing

Terri HarpLady

I love the mug she made, but I’m always nervous about drinking out of it, cuz I can be a clutz!

Sil

Thats awesome Terri! Totally talented and I’d probably be like you heh. I really want a literary mug from Ophelia’s gypsy caravan on etsy but none of the mugs in her new batch from today really called to me….soooo another few months of waiting heh

Hands Down…

THE BEST Irish Cream Tea I have ever tasted!

This is amazing! It’s rich, strong, dessert-like, creamy, creamy-mint, and so much more! I’m back logging this one but it’s a VERY memorable tea! I’m sending the last bit of the sample to my Sororitea Sister LiberTEAs – I must admit it’s going to be hard to let it go! LOL – I see an order in my future :)

YUMMM to the 10th power!

Backlog:

Yummy!

I like the Irish Cream flavor here, At first I thought this might be another Irish Breakfast with a vanilla cream note (I love those as well) but I was happily surprised to find that this has delightful, subtle Irish Cream Liqueur notes. Very nice.

Strong, malty, and delicious tea base (don’t oversteep it as it may result in a bitter cup). Very enjoyable.
