Irish Breakfast is a combination of black tea from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Assam (India) to get your morning off to a bright start. As its name implies, Irish Breakfast tea is an ideal accompaniment to a morning meal. It seamlessly blends the citrusy notes of high-grown Ceylon tea with the malty underscore of a pungent Assam tea. With a deep and brisk flavour, Irish Breakfast tea is rounded off with sweetness in the finish. Irish Breakfast is a classic black tea to be enjoyed plain or with a drop of milk.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 100°C for 3-5 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavour in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavour of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

ingredients & lore

blended with ceylon sonata tea and assam melody tea

James Joyce, a gourmand as well as a prolific writer, began Ulysses with not one, but two Irish Breakfasts. His protagonist, Leopold Bloom, recounted every meal consumed on what is now known as Bloomsday. The meal, also known as Fry, is typically served all day long, and consists primarily of porridge, bacon, sausage, smoked salmon, eggs and tea. The latter was required equally strong, as it was customary to dilute it with milk. The teas of Ceylon and Assam were judged equal to the task. However, the proportion of each varies greatly from blend to blend.
