The 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 this one is a little more sophisticated.
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.
It has very good body, it is usually served with milk. Of course, the Irish would have it no other way.
