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, the 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.

Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

Ingredients & Lore

blended with ceylon sonata tea & assam melody tea

Top of the morning is a salutation which offers the “best of the morning”. There’s a bit of mystery as to where the term comes from though, which could be referring to the “top” as the best, as the beginning of the morning, or, our personal favorite, as a nod to cream, which rises as the “best” to the top of fresh milk. While the phrase isn’t commonly used by Ireland natives today (as the second highest per-capita tea drinkers in the world) their favorite blend clearly is.

Raw Honey for Black Teas

I'm new to loose leaf teas. When they say on the directions 1 cup do they mean 8oz or a coffee cup?

Direct Trade Advantage

We import our teas direct from the artisan farmers whose names and faces you'll find throughout our catalog. This makes our teas fresher than those offered by the companies who use middlemen and brokers, and also less expensive. Here's a comparison of how much more you'd be paying by buying this tea elsewhere:
