659 Tasting Notes
I drank this whole bag before I realized I never stopped to write a tasting note. This tea grew on me pretty quickly. It’s a bit light compared to most Irish breakfasts, but still hefty enough to be a breakfast tea. I liked the flavor, and since it wasn’t as acidic as the average breakfast tea, it sat a lot better on my stomach.
After a Celestial Seasonings hiatus of YEARS, I grabbed a box of this at the store because I need to bump up my tisane stock a bit and I remembered this had been weirdly popular on Steepster. It is pretty good, though the barley is a bit of an odd flavor in the mix. It does kind of taste like sugar cookies? I wish the orange peel came through more because I always used to put orange peel in my cookies and I miss it.
