It’s a palatable Irish breakfast, but no matter what I try, the malty flavor is sadly overshadowed by the astringent flavors. Darn you tannins—foiled again! I may pick up some dairy free milk for the remainder of this tea, in order to smooth out the astringency.

It’s so terribly sad, because the scent in the tin promises such a delightful experience that one would like to expect from an Irish Breakfast blend. Malty and warm. Same with the scent in the cup.

Alas, the hunt continues!

I’m coming back to Steepster after a nearly 7 year hiatus.

Going to continue my journey of logging what tastes good to me and what doesn’t and discovering new tea along the way.
