Yep, a super strong tea. Delicious with some maple syrup (Sil, your suggestions have created a problem) and cream.
I need to finish this because I still have just over 100g of English Breakfast my mom got me last Christmas. She believes in large amounts of tea – see the 250g bag of Earl Grey I’m only “almost” finished because I gave about 50g away to a friend. Where “almost” finished means I have a bit less than 50g in the cupboard. I’ve been working on that one for almost 3 years now. :/
So yes. This is one of the older teas in my cupboard, and I do like it for a morning kick in the pants. I prefer the cream Irish Breakfast from Tealux (mmm, cream teas), and the English Breakfast my mom gave me.
