The Irish like their tea brewed very strong. Our Super Irish Breakfast blend is truly "the espresso" of teas. This tea is delicious with milk and sugar, but lovers of brisk breakfast teas will drink it plain.
Our Super Irish Breakfast is a more caffeinated version of the regular Irish Breakfast. While Irish Breakfast is usually blended with an Assam tea base, our Super Irish Breakfast has even more Assam, which makes the tea maltier, richer and more full-bodied.
Assam is a district in northeastern India that lies on the Indian-Burmese border. It produces more black tea than any other area on earth, with the exception of a few places in China. Assam's tea gardens cover some four hundred thousand acres of verdant rolling plains on both sides of the mighty Brahmaputra River.
The other black tea used in our Super Irish Breakfast blend is Ceylon. Ceylon-or its contemporary name Sri Lanka-is a beautiful tropical island that lies just twenty-two miles off the southern tip of India. Sri Lanka supplies about 25% of the world's tea. The nearly six hundred thousand acres of tea under cultivation provide well over half of the island's export earnings.

"My favorite is our Super Irish Breakfast. I find that during this time of year where it's getting warmer but the mornings are still chilly and as tiring as ever, a great way to get myself going is with a cup of strong Super Irish Breakfast. I take mine with cream and sugar for a morning pick-me-up." – Derek K. (Sales Support Technician)
Finally! After 5 years in the States, a tea that's strong enough for my morning cup of tea! We immigrants of British/New Zealand extraction applaud you!
This is one of my go-to morning teas to drink.
This has become my daily starting point. If I don't get a cup I feel out of sync. It is a great cup with dash of honey.
Love, love, love this tea! I'll be ordering it again and again!
Deep, robust, uplifting and calming as well. I love to drink this a my wake up drink in the “morning” and even take a nip mid-afternoon as a booster. This tea is definitely the “espresso” of teas. Drink this slow to savor the aroma and taste. I like it with a bit of milk and just a scant of sugar/honey to enhance the experience. Being half Irish, I can see why the Irish created this wonder.
I like both the Irish and Super Irish breakfast teas. They both are very similar. I usually have a couple cups in the morning and again later in the day for a pick me up. The large size just fills 2 x 300ml large size tea canisters. I have tried many other kinds and this is by far my favorite. The box comes within a few days of the time I order it. Well packed. They always get what I ask for in the box. Great company, great product
