For our Irish breakfast tea, we use high quality, full-bodied, robust Assam teas. The resulting blend is a dark brown tippy leaf that brews up a deep red liquor that is hearty, malty and rich in flavor. This tea is delicious with milk and sugar.
The Irish drink their tea brewed very strong. Irish Breakfast, with its robust flavor, is usually enjoyed only in the morning (except for the Irish who drink it all day). Usually it is blended with an Assam tea base. 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 probable 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. Assam is proof that not all fine quality tea has to be high grown.

I am part Irish so I have always enjoyed it.
Irish Breakfast is s very good wake-up tea. It is robust and clean tasting. Is one of the better black morning teas. Thank you, Stash, for having such a great selection of teas.
Excellent robust black tea. Great with milk (substitute) in the morning.
So glad to get my Irish tea the other day, I had used another brand and was so amazed at how fresh the Stash tea is. This is a staple for my cubboard.
Irish Breakfast (and Super Irish Breakfast) are my absolute favorites for my morning wake-up call! Add milk (and sometimes honey if I have a scratchy throat) and it's my morning latte!!! It has such a smooth, rich, bold flavor that I love and if I run out I am despondent! There are lots of flavors I love for different times of day, but Irish Breakfast is always my go-to favorite.
I'm the first to admit I'm not a morning person, and as such, if I have to be up and functional, a good strong cup of tea is just the thing to help that along. This tea is perfect for that, especially brewed "strong enough to knock over large livestock", as a friend says. It also makes a wonderful accompaniment to an afternoon snack of homemade potato bread and a nice sharp cheddar cheese.
