A friend sent a box of Barry’s Gold from Ireland. It is has a stronger taste than PG Tips or Bewley’s Green Label. It is not a tea to slowly sip, black, and enjoy facets of complex layers of flavor.

It is a kick-start tea, to drink with a bit of your favorite dairy liquid, for the purpose of waking up quickly.

The reason I am giving it as high a rating as I am, is that it is a useful tea for its kick, and is less unpalatable than the packaged teas sold in the USA.

For jump-start tea in a box, it’s not bad. It is what it is. The caffeine and theobromine will get you going.

Especially enjoy Assam, Orange Pekoe, Darjeeling, Oolong, Pu-erh, occasional breakfast blends, and the odd cup of such as German chamomile or spearmint/lemon grass. (I grow my own herbs.)
