drank Irish Breakfast by Bewley's
1713 tasting notes

The morning I recently flew to Ireland I was rummaging through my cupboard thinking it was a shame that I didn’t have ONE more cup left of Butiki’s Irish Breakfast (or ANY Irish breakfast) to commemorate the start of my journey. Subsequently I bought just about all the Irish breakfast teas I could find, including swiping all of the Bewley’s tea bags that my hotel provided. I’m under the impression that a hearty tea in the morning is standard for the Irish, but I was surprised that there wasn’t a broader selection of teas.

This steeps up pretty rich, but when I put creamer in it, the flavor almost disappeared. As I sip on the flavor slowly reemerges. There is a dry papery tobacco note to it… maybe a slight bit of malt. I’m not finding that this tea really shines. It’s just a standard bagged tea, not that I expected much else from it. It would be nice in a pinch, but not when I have my cupboard accessible.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
