“Hospital tea. I generally like this, pleasant and strong with no bitter bite; but there’s just something about Styrofoam that messes with the leaf, no matter what.” Read full tasting note
A strong, full-bodied black tea from the regions of Ceylon and Assam expertly blended with a hearty flavor and delightful aroma.
The Irish really love their tea and are amongst the most frequent drinkers of tea around the world. In celebration of this tea drinking tradition, Twinings blended a special Irish Breakfast Blend. This tea is best taken with milk and sweetened to taste to bring out the best flavor.

A fairly standard black tea. Nice deep color and decent aroma. I added a good amount of milk and sugar (I don’t usually do that) which helps cut back on the spicy flavor. Right as the spice is about to kick-in in full strength, the sugar and milk come and soften the blow. Even though its a breakfast tea it works well as a mid-afternoon cuppa.
