mellow, smooth, buttery, flaky pastry
tea liquor: color infuses almost instantaneously and it is a rich dark, coffee-color brown that turns amber red in the light, just beautiful.
rich and full-bodied. not bitter in the least. so delicious, that even though i added brown sugar, it was a very little bit. next time i may even try without. this is a flaky pastry in a cup, and i’ve been waiting to say that for quite a while. it’s great with milk, but even a touch, you can still taste the buttery, milky flavor beneath that you got in the dry leaf. this is quite delicious! am seriously considering stocking some of this. would make a wonderfully smooth, creamy base for a stovetop chai, but given that spice and sweetness would inevitably take over, the precious flavor of this tea might go unnoticed!
i’ve never had an official ‘Irish breakfast tea’ but if this is anything to go by, it’s a very special tea! unique for sure and might i add—delicious and satisfying. so glad i started my day (err….late afternoon) off with this.
