drank Irish Breakfast by Adagio Teas
73 tasting notes

I received this as a sample from Adagio last weekend, and figured it’d be the perfect tea to kickstart my St. Patty’s Day celebrations. This morning, I went to Mariano’s (one of the grocery stores in Chicago) and bought some of their delicious soda bread, along with some Kerry Gold butter (I rarely keep butter in my apartment, so this was a treat) and decided to enjoy them with some Irish Breakfast tea as soon as I got home.

This tea is pleasantly malty, and stands up well to cream and sugar. Nothing about it sets it apart from other Irish breakfast blends, but I wasn’t expecting it to.

If you count the bagged stuff, I’ve been a tea drinker for a long time. I first discovered the joys of loose leaf on a trip to London in 2014, and it’s all been downhill from there. I’m still in the phase where I want to try everything, and I’m still developing my tea personality.

Types of tea / tisanes I gravitate toward: black, green oolong, Japanese green, flavored teas (sweet, floral, fruity, minty, complex, you name it), rooibos, roasted mate, and many herbal and fruit combos.

Teas I need to try, try again, or keep trying: white, pu erh, dark oolong, pure Chinese green, mate

I’ll update soon with my rating system!
