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.

Dark brown leaves.
A medium-dark brown liquor.
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.
This has very good body. It is usually served with milk. Of course, the Irish would have it no other way.
This is usually served with milk and sugar, so the flavors harmonize well with them. There are subtle notes of roast malt.
