I accidentally forgot I had started this steeping this morning, and when I finally remembered it was tepid, with the completely saturated leaves floating listlessly around the teamaker… so I threw it out and started afresh. The marigold petals really help this tea get that “cream” flavor going. I had it sweetened, but I didn’t add any milk, like my husband and I normally do. I just wasn’t feeling it today. It was delicious and smooth, and the flavors weren’t too strong. Just what I was after. n_n

I tend to Tea Binges. Instead of a new flavor every day (because I have SO many to choose from) I will find a tea I like and stick with it for a while. I’ve been enjoying Irish Breakfast Cream for several days now. In the shop, flavored teas consistently outsell the basics, however my own tastes tend to the traditional. This one is a good option for a traditionalist, with the twist of the caramel tones that meld the 3 black teas chosen for this blend into a luscious smoothness.

A mixture of CTC and whole leaf gives this tea a robustness that keeps its character without letting the caramelness take over.

It seems every tea company has several offerings with ‘Cream’ notes. I do pay particular attention to them as popularity indicated by sales is definitely trending.
Having had so much success in the shop with the ever popular Cream Earl Grey, I decided to order the Irish Breakfast Cream. I am now a fan of this tea and I do believe my guests will enjoy this lovely smooth Irish Breakfast as well. It is a keeper.
