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.
