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.

Flavors: Butter, Milk, Pastries, Smooth

love tea in every form- from bagged to loose leaf..commercial to niche. i am intrigued by it all & want to learn as much as i can through my 5 senses (tho with tea i’ll presumably be using 3)..am a very sensorial person. love music, perfume, poetry, graphic design, India, Malaysia, Moorish architecture, oh….and tea!

apparently i’m really out of the loop here since i appear to be among the only ones who have not yet tried Golden Moon, Butiki, 52teas, Mandala, Teavivre or Della Terra. i mean REALLY. i need to start lifting this rock up over my head y’all. from the looks of things, i’ve been reenacting Groundhog’s Day every hour on the hour with my uniformed choices. i seek to be anointed!

also, don’t take my numbers too literally; they can’t possibly speak to the actual quality of the tea, much less to the constancy of my own perceptions! what i may feel to be an 88 one day, could very well be a 91 the next, or even 100, depending on my taste buds, blood sugar levels, neuronal firings or planetary alignment ;)
