Scroll down and look at the description. A bit disappointing right? Especially considering how nice and earthy the flavor is. Honestly, I tend to not drink many Irish or English breakfast teas because I tend to stick to the greener side of teas but it is good to try the ‘darker side’ particularly when you savor a clean flavor like this one.
Clean seems like it might be a weird word to use to describe tea but honestly that was what my first thought was. Perhaps pure would be better? Even the color of the brewed tea is somewhat more elegant.
Truly its the flavor that impresses me the most though. Definitely earthy with essences of both wood and forest. The wet aroma is reminiscent of wood chips.
This is the type of black tea that will make you cringe when people ask you to put milk in it. No offense if you do of course. Now that I think about it though, I wonder if you ground up the leaves like match and made a latte…. with some frothed vanilla almond milk?
If I had the ability to froth milk I would do this. . . .
