Our Review
The Harneys have been out of Ireland for sometime, so our Irish Breakfast is an older version. This tea recalls a time when the teas came from Assam, not Africa; and were small broken leaves, not CTC pellets. So this is a simple tea that can handle milk and sugar well.
Dry Leaves Dark brown leaves.
Liquor A medium-dark brown liquor.
Aroma This has some of the malty aromas found in other Assams. However, since it is a smaller tea and there are no tips, the aromas seem to be muted.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This has very good body. It is usually served with milk. Of course, the Irish would have it no other way.
Flavors This is usually served with milk and sugar, so the flavors harmonize well with them. There are subtle notes of roast malt.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Irish Breakfast

Our Irish Breakfast tea is 100% Assam, and like most traditional Irish blends, this is a great way to begin your morning. It tastes great solo, or takes milk and sugar well. In contrast to other versions of Irish Breakfast tea, you could say ours is a little more sophisticated. Kosher. Enjoy it in a selection of loose tea sizes, or our convenient box of 20 tea bags. You may also want to try our Organic Assam Wrapped Tea Sachets.
100% Assam, like most traditional Irish blends, this is a good way to start your morning. Like cereal, it takes milk and sugar well. In contrast to other vendors, ours is a little more refined.

A Lovely Breakfast (or Anytime) Tea
Average Review:

This is a lovely (my Irish friends would say "brilliant") black tea. It is made of broken leaves and the liqour is a caramelly brown. A nice level of astringency and light, dry finish without causing a pucker (even without milk and sugar). Aroma is pleasant and similar to other black teas. Flavor is smooth and malty. Overall, a very nice black tea.

Smooth and malty
Average Review:

This is the tea that turned me into a Harney customer for life. I was offered a cup as a guest, and immediately fell in love with this smooth and malty tea. If you're a fan of full-bodied teas that aren't too astringent, and are absolute perfection with milk and honey, this is it. It is now a staple in my house, ordered by the pound!

Lovely!
Average Review:

My favorite blend of tea in looseleaf...what a dream. I've tried many versions of Irish Breakfast, and yours is by far my favorite.
