drank Irish Breakfast by Twinings
260 tasting notes

10oz in tea for one pot, my mid-afternoon break.

Another classic, Twinings has a straightforward approach that does not cut any corners.

Initial notes are a strong maltiness, thanks to the Assam tea used but with the tangy bite of a classic Ceylon black tea steeped perfectly. It will certainly wake you up! Or at very least put a little hair on your chest. This is partially due to the tannin on the finish, which lingers in the throat as a reminder that you are enjoying a good hearty cup.

This is a great breakfast tea since it would be very receptive to cream or your choice of sweetener. The tea equivalent of a good dry red wine or quality black coffee. The caffeine is present and welcomed.

Easy stock for the pantry and cost-effective. The sort of offering that comes from a company with centuries of blending and brewing experience. I would recommend this for a bright start to your day.

Flavors: Biting, Malt

I enjoy many tasty things in life. Getting back into tea as I am trying to wean off of coffee for regular consumption and maintain a more healthy lifestyle.

Also enjoyed are all of the historical implications of tea culture, and teas of the world.
Take a moment to meditate with a cup in hand, and our world will seem clearer when the last sip leaves your cup!

My rating system is in honor of K.S.

90-100 Stellar, to be displayed proudly if shared with guests. Or just a tea that hits its mark well.
80-90 I enjoy this tea a lot, would purchase and drink it. Fine if it lives in the pantry
70-80 Above Average, would drink it and probably still buy if the mood struck me.
50-70 Average, I would still drink it when available.
0-50 I don’t care for this tea, and have no desire to care for it.
