There was too much of a bitter dirt-taste with this one for me. Next to Adagio’s Irish Breakfast, it’s just bleh.

This stuff tastes like it was watered with perfume or someone dropped a bottle of cologne on this batch.

I have tasted this in teas before I think it might be intentional. Though, why anyone would want to lick an old lady’s makeup case is beyond me.

While I normally enjoy lighter teas – green being my favorite, I decided to try some black teas this month and my first pick was adagio’s “English Breakfast.” From first brew you can tell it is a strong black tea. It had a very strong aroma – not sweet at all, but still pleasant. It tasted a lot like what you would expect. It isn’t sweet like the green teas I have tried, but it also didn’t have quite as much “bite” as some other black teas. I found that I enjoyed it best as a pick me up in the morning. I also really enjoyed it in the afternoon with just a little bit of milk and sugar. The milk and sugar really ease out the last hint of bitterness and make for a really smooth cup. It actually reminded me quite a bit of coffee, and might make for a good “transition tea” for anybody trying to switch. One note: be careful when you brew it, even a little extra time can make it very bitter very fast.

Tasty, but a little too everyday. I’ll drink it if it’s there, but I do not prefer it.
