IRISH BREAKFAST TEA

Size

If you're like the Irish, you a strong cup of tea. Our Irish Breakfast is one of the most popular blended breakfast teas. The Irish traditionally enjoy this Ceylon black tea strong with plenty of milk and sugar, but those that love a classic brisk breakfast tea drink it plain.

Traditional Irish breakfast tea is a combination of two full-bodied loose leaf black teas: Ceylon with the citrus notes and Assam tea with the malty underscore will kick start your day. Spicy and jammy aroma, with a malty flavor, a brisk mouthfeel, and nice sweetness in the finish.  

Assam, a district in northeastern India on the Indian-Burmese border, produces more black tea than any other country, except for a few places in China.

Ceylon, also known as Sri Lanka, is a tropical island off the southern tip of India. 25% of the world's tea is supplied by Sri Lanka.

How would you compare Irish vs English breakfast tea?

Both English and Irish breakfast teas are black tea blends. Irish loose breakfast tea is a stronger and more robust tea than English Breakfast Tea, but not quite as strong as a Scottish Breakfast tea. It's strong Assam component gives it a malty flavor and a reddish hue. 

Does Irish Black Tea contain caffeine?

Yes, with a high level of caffeine, it is the best breakfast tea to kickstart your day. 

Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

Masala Chai
Hi Mary Lou, We're disappointed you weren't thrilled with our Masala Chai. It has very similar ingredients to Oprah Chai, but if you are looking for more cinnamon and a bit more sweetness, you should try our Maharaja Chai Oolong. While it is an Oolong tea instead of a black tea, it does have a higher caffeine level like a black tea, and it has all the other ingredients of the Oprah Chai: Spicy Cinnamon, Ginger, Cocoa Nibs, Black Peppercorn, Chicory, Cardamom, Cloves. The Masala Chai does not have the cocoa nibs that give it the sweetness I think you may be missing. We will send you a sample!
Not quite
Hi Jerry - If you're looking for more of a chai flavor, try blending the White Ayurvedic Chai with our Samurai Spirit Chai Maté - a very popular blend! (https://tealeavz.com/products/samurai-chai-mate)
