Gift teas two: Irish Breakfast and Makaibari Estate Darjeeling, both from Mad Hat, A Tea Company. Both recommended, though neither emphatically. Sure, if this tea "palace" was close by, rather than in downtown Tacoma, I'd be happy to stop in for a taste. But no cross-country ordering has been inspired by an Irish Breakfast that is much like most others in my experience or a tea type that's never been a fave. The autumnal flush organic darjeeling, with a more pronounced flavor than other darjeelings I've tried, was perhaps the most enjoyable such tea in my slim history. That bodes well if by chance I find myself at 1130 Commerce.
Why Mad Hat has been compelled to make controvertible "duh" statements en français on its packets, I haven't the foggiest. The Irish Breakfast specified Ceci n'est pas un Donkey.
