drank Irish Breakfast by Steam Tea House
1132 tasting notes

2021 sipdown no. 88

I’m feeling lethargic today and there’s no immediate reason as to why except that perhaps so many things are just catching up to me. I have about 40 pages of notes to get through for my new course and the rest of my work day ahead. Here’s to hoping that this tea will be the jolt that I need.

Of the English and Irish breakfast teas from Steam, I really prefer the Irish. It comes off as ‘cleaner’ to me and freshly bold.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec 3 g 14 OZ / 414 ML

Bio

I live with my partner and our two bunnies: Callie and Ben, and two cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love straight and flavoured black teas and this is what I’m usually drinking.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs, whites, and subtly flavoured greens. Other teas I’m happy to try at least once!

Likes:
Raspberry, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, cacao/dark chocolate, honey, coconut, and chai spices. I’m open to other flavoured teas but they can’t be cloying or fake/candy like.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, flowers (rose and jasmine), and ginger (except in chai).

Flavours that can go either way:
Hibiscus, vanilla, and peach.
