Irish Breakfast Tea.TwiningsJanuary 11, 2008 at 1:36 pm | Posted in Black Tea, Breakfast, Tea Reviews | Leave a comment
Methodman: 1 tea bag + 8oz @ 200F, some minutes …around 3.
Taste: cant really distinguish. feels like a blend of black teas. teabag astringency. maybe ceylon blended with something. can feel that ceylon flavor i dont quite like on my tongue. Lots of tannin/astringency sticking to tongue, throat, feel dusty-dry-rough on tongue now. Astringency doesnt quit like in the PG Tips, and unlike pg tips, astringency is not replaced by a sweet aftertaste.
Overall: flavor of …anything is mild-low, astringency is more potent than flavor.
Will do it “English style” soon … not “Irish” ‘cos its early in the morning and drinking alcohol in the morning is considered a sign of addiction… I’ll make it Irish…later…in the afternoon 😉
