Our Irish Breakfast combines hearty black teas from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Assam (India) to get your morning off to a bright start. As its name implies, Irish Breakfast black tea blend is an ideal accompaniment to a morning meal. It seamlessly blends the citrusy notes of a high-grown Ceylon with the malty underscore of a pungent Assam. Spicy and jammy aroma on the leaf, malty and deep flavor with a brisk and 'buzzy' mouthfeel. Rounded sweetness in the finish. May be enjoyed plain or with a drop of milk. Irish Breakfast is one of Adagio's most popular teas. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      This is the perfect breakfast tea! It is much smoother than English breakfast tea and has a wonderful flavor.

      The first thing I thought of when I smelled this was that it smelled like a barn, and I totally mean that in a good way. There's an earthy aroma of hay and warmth. It's just the only way I can describe it. It tastes wonderful as well, earthy and malty. Just a little sugar and it's a perfect start to the day. I also put a batch in the fridge overnight to try it iced. It wasn't bad, though I prefer it hot as I think it loses some of those nice flavor notes.

      My favorite black tea to start the morning with. Dry leaf has a nice "jammy" scent (makes me think of strawberry jam on toast), and goes best, in my opinion, with a slash of milk and sugar. 5 minutes at 205 degrees is my usual brew routine.

      Just delightful. A nice full taste, very rich, not too heavy on the tannins.

      A good, solid, full-bodied, classic black tea. Great in the mornings with some milk and honey.
