Got a sample size of this with a previous order which was at least a year ago now. As I was steeping this I wondered… what makes a breakfast tea regional? I’ve had French, English and Irish breakfast teas. They are all malty, heavy, go well with added cream, but what differentiates a French from an English one? Is there a different base used in each? I’m going to have to consult the googles and see what info I can find.

This tea follows the breakfast tea profile; malty, heavy, goes well with cream. There is a sweetness to it. The finish is almost a barley like flavor. It’s good and mildly interesting, but probably not something I’d put on my shopping list.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
