As I mentioned in my full-length review of this tea – http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/11/27/irish-breakfast-green-tea-from-culinary-teas/ – I don’t usually turn to a green tea as a ‘breakfast tea’ … I usually want my first cup of the day to be black and I want it to be strong! But I could see turning to this as a breakfast tea, it certainly has some gusto to it! And the flavor is very satisfying.
I just wouldn’t recommend adding milk and honey to it. Honey … maybe … milk? No.
Then again, I’m usually a just say no to milk when it comes to most teas, even my breakfast teas. The only tea I’m not usually opposed to having in latte form is a chai.
Anyway! On to my thoughts about this tea: It’s a very flavorful green. The sip starts out sweet with toasty, nutty flavors. It’s not an overly vegetal/grassy type of tea, but there are some subtle vegetative tones. Hints of butter, floral notes, subtle notes of melon, and a distant smoky note.
A really pleasant and complex blend.
