Bagged or loose, I do love this tea. I always have. I love this, and also English Breakfast tea, but Irish Breakfast tea is my favourite of those two.
I actually haven’t had loose Irish Breakfast tea in many years — it is usually more flavourful. But the bagged version is still delicious.
Just this morning I had it with milk for the first time, in well, EVER — except I have a vague notion that I likely had tea with milk in it while I lived in England, because that’s a very common thing over there. ;) I’ve also shopped at the original Twinings tea shop in London — that’s a delightful, heavenly smelling place!
I’m now thinking a nice strong cup of Irish breakfast with some milk and sugar is just thing, especially during the chilly winter months. _
I do have some loose English Breakfast tea on order from David’s Tea, so I’m looking forward to trying that with milk and sugar to compare.
