drank Decaf Irish Breakfast by Tea Embassy
1138 tasting notes

I generally like Irish Breakfast tea. The meal I have mixed feelings about, the blood sausage weirds me out. The dry leaves of this tea are cute and curly with a lighter color on the very edge of them. Steeped, this tea was lighter in color than I expected and seems a touch light on the taste. I usually take my breakfast teas with cream, so I added some without tasting it first. It has a light malty tannin flavor to it. The assam comes through. My mouth is left a little dry after each sip. Raisins faintly in the aftertaste. This tea seems okay, but so far isn’t my favorite IB ever. We’ll see if that changes. Even if it doesn’t, it’s still nice to have it for an evening option.

*Next time try steeping for 4m on first steep.

I loved blood sausage! I am glad they called it black pudding there, though! The white pudding was just as good to me.

Oh that’s right! I totally forgot it was called black pudding! Sounds so much more appetizing that way.

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.
