Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"This is a tea that is well worth steeping again and again. It's well rounded flavour profile seesaws between cocoa, caramel and fruit notes, and savoury toasted bread and popcorn flavours."

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"A good, strong, and full-flavored Irish Breakfast tea. The bold astringency comes shining through even at a minimal steeping time. Notes of lemon are evident, and it takes very well to cream and sugar.... or Bailey's. "

Teaviews Member: Melanie Melanie's review:
"The taste was very full bodied. It took milk well and had such a lovely natural sweetness that I only used a bit of sugar, and had several cups with no sugar. It was lightly malty with a floral background. Definitely the best Irish Breakfast blend I've ever had!"

"A proper level of astringency, with a slight spicy bite to it, all while presenting a unique twist on the similar umami flavor profile of a Yunnan (Dian Hong) tea."

" My first sip came as quite the surprise- not a bit of flavor resembling what one would find in a black tea, but instead a clean and vegetal green tea profile. "

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"I wouldn't expect this tea to grab hold of you and cause you to forget your other breakfast tea favorites but it's not a bad tasting tea, either. It seems to lack some of the oomph, maltiness and strength that the Indian black tea single sources or blends have set as my breakfast tea standards. "

Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
" A splash of half and half brought out the surprisingly complex flavors of spice, wood, tobacco, and honey sweetness. The finish was sweet and woody, with lots of mouth-drying pull that left me primed for the next sip. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. For me, the apple-cinnamon component was most prominent, with the mango providing a sweet background for the apples and cinnamon."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"An interesting blend for those that would like to try a mixture of green tea leaves from different origins. Proper brewing is absolutely essential to avoid a harshly bitter aftertaste, but if brewed properly, this is a robust morning blend that can rival the typical black tea breakfast blends. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"Although this was, by name, an oolong, it was very different from any other oolong I have sampled. With its crisp and vegetal flavor, this is a tea that I would have pegged for a Darjeeling."
