If you like clove, go nuts, but this gave me a headache after about 30 seconds of steeping. If you just see this review, don't not look at the other blends in the series, this one just isn't for me.

In need of a big kick of energy? This Irish Breakfast blend is definitely what you need to get you started and keep you running to fulfill your duties of rounding up scoundrels and keeping people out of the dog park. Who needs coffee when you got the Toasted Mate to get you energized without the jitteriness? Not to mention, what a delectable mellow toasty taste and a mouth full of smoke from the Gunpowder (okay, not literally smoke, but definitely a more full body flavor when the smokey mixes with the toasty). With that spicy hint of clove, the senses are diligently tingled awake. The Ceylon perfectly melts together with the pungent Assam delights the tongue with a malty and brisk flavor in the mouth that shocks the brain into gear. All this, everything, needed for the brave and the dutiful Sheriff's Secret Police. And hey, why not top it all off with some cardamon for a more soothing blend just to keep from being too wired up for action...just a bit. (5 mins @ 212°C)

This is my favorite tea! The first tea that I really found delicious, not just okay.

Discovering this tea changed my life. I am a huge fan of Irish Breakfast. the pairing of Assam and Ceylon is my perfect cup of tea. Little did I know it could get even better. This blend by Cara blew me away the first time I tried it and still makes me sigh and exclaim out loud 'I LOVE THIS TEA' every time I have a cup even after a year of drinking it on the regular. Adagio's Irish Breakfast is amazing on its own, and combining it with their Toasted Mate was a brilliant idea that adds a warming toasty quality that gives the feeling you get from sipping a great coffee without the coffee flavor if that makes sense. The clove and cardamom lend the flavor of all things right in the world. I'm sure she first thought of Gunpowder for this blend because of the name, but my gosh that amazing hint of smokiness and green tea under-note that the amount of it that's included adds to the blend is the perfect touch to tie everything together and make this tea truly spectacular. Irish Breakfast used to be my favorite tea but now I can't live without this specific blend with toasted mate, gunpowder, clove and cardamom in Cara's Sherriff's Secret Police. Perfection.
