drank Irish Breakfast by Harney & Sons
2815 tasting notes

Another tea I picked up from Harney, I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by this but I do enjoy a good Irish Breakfast tea every so often.

I steeped this for only 3 minutes and I was glad. It’s a fairly brisk and hefty assam with a bit of astringency and a winey-like aftertaste. I definitely needed milk and sugar with this one but that’s about what I was expecting. I don’t really think this is any better than the Twinings brand I can get in the grocery store but it is certainly acceptable to me. I managed to sleep for 11 hours last night and I’m happy about that! Definitely going to try avoiding coffee today…

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta
