irish breakfast

Based on 5761 reviews
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.
High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes

Evening! My picture today is of the collage of photos I have on my wall from my trip to Ireland back in 2009. It was so much fun and I definitely want to go back some day!

We had our honeymoon there back in 1999.

My husband and I were also there in 1999.

Pic: This is a bombilla! It’s one of my favorite inventions. It filters out my tea leaves when I cold brew directly in the cup :)
12:02 am
user icon
I love that people started discovering that they can use these for loose leaf tea other than just yerba mate
12:22 am
user icon
*adds to wish list* Brilliant. Absolutely astounding. I need one 8 years ago. "What information would you tell a past you?" Bombilla. Send tweet.
12:30 am
user icon
I seriously need one of those! Always tea leaves I can't get with a spoon swimming around my tea....or coffee grounds bobbing around in my coffee cup. I agree Adagio needs a version of this.....
06:27 am
user icon
Dear Adagio, we’ve been good all year… 📝😉
03:57 pm
user icon
I looked these bombillas up this morning. I love the idea and have ordered one for my Yerba mate. It is also perfect for a unique tea related gift.

I like this one. I guess I am particular to which black tea is used with the blends

I just placed my order for my November CT box, plus some other goodies! I caved and bought the whole sample set of the wicked teas haha

Hello my teaple. My brewtheren. My... teamigos and teamigas. I was so excited about my tea order arriving I drank significantly more tea in a significantly shorter time than my usual habits and I feel silly. I think I'm tea drunk. Shhhhh. Shh shh shh. Don't tell the tea police.

I'm sending everyone as many silly tea vibes as I can. Anyone feeling anything yet???
12:16 am

That is an impressive haul. I think I would have gone tea-crazy too! Enjoy!!

My lips are sealed, except when I am sipping my tea

Wow, Sherlock. You go girl! Mums the word here.

Hi Shiro.
07:32 am
user icon
I have to say, of all the Breakfast teas of Adagio, my favorite is the English, then the Scottish. This Irish one is my least favorite.
12:10 am
user icon
I think Scottish is my favorite, and then it's a toss up between Irish and English. I wish English and Scottish were available to use in custom blends!
12:36 am
user icon
Love the Scottish Breakfast!
10:33 am
user icon
I am the opposite, Irish is my favorite because I love Ceylon and Assam black tea. Scottish come in second because of its pantheon of black teas. ☘️🍀☘️
01:33 am
user icon
I'd love to taste test them at the same time!
06:57 am
user icon
I got the black teas portions sampler earlier in the year and it helped me sort things out. Scottish was on top for me.
10:34 am
user icon
Good morning Lilly. We will have to do that one day. I love to compare the teas side by side
11:31 am
user icon
That was part of why the Indian and Sri Lankan sampler came in handy, especially since at the time I wasn’t sure what would appeal to me or even if I could detect a difference (tea is tea, many people think). Now I’m imagining a whole flight of teas like they have for beer in craft breweries. 😝
04:03 pm
user icon
Mine is Scottish though I have a tin of Irish because my oldest daughter enjoys it. If only there was a Welsh Breakfast out there.

We belong dead! Count RJ's Halloween Countdown - 13 days remain. Today's theme is the electrifying classic, The Bride of Frankenstein! Featuring the iconic monsters alongside my beloved Adagio skull infuser mug! One of my favorites of the Universal Monster movies, The Bride of Frankenstein makes for the perfect watch on a cold October night...While sipping a cup of irish breakfast of course ;)

want to come assemble Festus' house? It's still in the box. Trying to get hubby to put it together....he says Festus will just cram himself in there and knock the walls down. lol which is exactly what will happen....but the big fuzzy galoot loves it so much. I guess he feels like catzilla.

I'm a night owl so I'm enjoying this beautiful classic Irish Breakfast right now. While I do prefer to enjoy my tea plain, I do enjoy Irish Breakfast with a little bit of milk and just a touch of the vanilla sugar that I blend
12:20 am
user icon
Well it's midnight and I have tomorrow off....so I'm drinking today's tea right now. :) Just 'cause. I'm going to blame Sherlock's tea vibes....ha ha
12:20 am

I accept this responsibility but the tea police will nevah catch me. Because I'm just brew fast for them. Teahee.
12:25 am
user icon
I will have to share your tea puns with my husband, who has lately become obsessed with them 🤣😉
01:36 am
user icon
I told them nothing! I just sipped my tea and giggled....and recited the tracking number for my latest tea order.
06:10 am
user icon
Sherlock, you have outdone us all with your teapuns! I am in awe. Wordplay is such fun...my favorite form of humor.
07:28 am

Yes you are a little silly and I love it! Keep it coming Sherlock

My photo today is one of my favorite Halloween decorations -- I leave it out all year. Nothing like a giant Mummy head! it has a light inside too, so you can make the eye sockets glow :)
12:23 am

That is one very scary mummy!!! Love it!!!
12:25 am

Yes it is
12:26 am

Believe it or not -- I bought it at CVS a couple years ago! Sometimes they have the BEST Halloween stuff! I wish I had bought the Frankenstein too!

we have little skeletons that hang on our fireplace all year...except for Christmas when the stockings go there. :) And our lifesize skeleton sits outside on our porch....we change his hat and decorate him for all the seasons. We're weird. :) I will have to get one of the little skeletons and have him hold my tea packet for a photo tomorrow :) We are gamer nerds....the decor fits our D&D group that plays here a couple times a month so we just leave some bits up all year. The big skeleton keeps door-to-door people from ringing our bell. ha ha. They walk right by..... Win!

The forest animals cup is so cute! I’d like to get the fall leaves one but not sure I can justify it.
04:08 pm

Adagio, this is my formal request that you sell bombillas so I can purchase one from your selection of wares and also so the world can be enlightened to their existence and uses.
12:38 am
user icon
Wonder if you get tea drunk faster drinking tea through a bombillas. Just like with drinking alcohol through a straw? I need one for experimental purposes!
10:08 am

Absolutely. A must have! FOR SCIENCE!!!!

not anticipating this one. Just not a plain black tea person. Might just pass it on to my girlfriend and take something else to work tomorrow.
02:24 am

That’s one of the great things about CommuniTEA: today’s not for you but tomorrow might be a new favorite! 😊
04:10 pm

This tea is perfect for my late night “brupper”
04:15 am
user icon
I had to smile at the word "brupper". I love new words, real or made up, and wondered if this one meant supper + breakfast? Thank you for the early morning smile.
04:33 am

Haha, yeah good catch! I have non-24, a circadian rhythm sleep/wake disorder. So, I'm actually waking up at midnight now and it's about 10am according to my body. It's my funny way of talking about which meal I'm eating and when... gotta keep a sense of humor, right? 😄
05:18 am
user icon
Good morning everyone! Have a wonderful and blessed Tuesday! I use to really enjoy Irish breakfast tea, but have to be careful about black teas, especially strong ones now.
04:32 am
user icon
A simple black tea today? I am looking forward to this!
04:44 am

I prefer a blend to a plain black tea.
04:50 am

And I am just the opposite Susan. Infact I am going to try some of Adagio’s master teas. I hear they are really nice.
11:37 am
user icon
Hi everyone! This tea smells nice.
05:03 am
user icon
I cannot wait until this afternoon to enjoy this one! It’s my favorite of the Breakfast blends! But for this morning’s work brew I’m drinking a mix of chocolate and cherry marzipan oolong. Pinkies up!
05:41 am
user icon
Tammy, that sounds like a delicious combo. I have both of those teas so I'll try the mix and sip along with you. Yummmmm.

Good morning everyone! I get to enjoy the tea with you today, even though I don't have the October Communitea. Irish Breakfast has been one of my favorites for a long time. So even though I can't give it an official thumbs-up, just add plus one to the yays.
05:43 am

Same here!

Good morning, everyone! Looking forward to a virtual tea with my daughters-in-law this afternoon. They live in Minnesota and Ohio, so I don't get to see them often. I sent them each a care package with the teacup shown in my photo, some homemade biscotti, and a signature blend (Kaia and Sir Winston) made just for them. Hoping it is the first tea of many that we enjoy together! Have a blessed day!
06:56 am

I hope it goes well and you enjoy one another's "company"!

Oh... I just wanted to share that I ordered my tea on Friday and it was delivered yesterday. (I'm in Tennessee.). For me, upgrading to Fedex ground for my Adagio orders has been totally worth it. Or... maybe that just shows that I have very little patience?
06:59 am
user icon
I've been tempted to upgrade to USPS at times. I had a really bad experience where FedEx lost my package. It was a headache to try and get my tea. My package was found the same day that Adagio was going to send me a replacement! So I totally get wanting to upgrade!
07:14 am
user icon
Lilly my order stayed in Mississippi for three days. Still waiting for it.
11:39 am
user icon
After too many orders with FedEx where my order got lost or delayed for two plus weeks, I just stick with USPS now. The extra cost is worth getting it a week or more earlier!
12:00 pm
user icon
I ordered my advent calendar yesterday. I'm so excited! I bought their advent calendar last year from a completely different website and that's how I fell in love with Adagio teas! I can't wait to dig into this year's. Anyone who's been around for a while, is it difficult to do the advent calendar and the communiTea at the same time?
07:08 am
user icon
I got hooked with the advent calendar last year too. I got a week of CommuniTea with my calendar.
08:23 am
user icon
Me too although got the week in my second order, less than a month later.
10:36 am
user icon
No, just be prepared for a lot of tea. I found myself putting a couple packets away for later that I am still drinking because I didn’t want both packets the same day.
08:43 am
user icon
the hunt for more storage begins, right?
11:43 am
user icon
I did both last year, and I didn't always drink both on the same day. I primarily got the Advent calendar to try some of the blends I hadn't had yet and wanted to sample. I'm thinking I'll just do the Advent calendar this year and be surprised. I went for the spoiler last year and it took some of the fun out of it.

Hehe awesome. For my next trick I'm going to attempt to bend reality and peer into parallel worlds and locate other versions of me and then we'll battle to the death because THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE and - oh, wait.

The Irish Breakfast tea tin in my photo today came from Gallery Espresso on Bull St in Savannah GA. Despite the name, this cafe sells Adagio teas by the cup and canister. They also have a full display of tea pots, strainers, etc. If you are in the area, I can also recommend the scones there too.

Just a few weeks ago I was in Savannah, Guess I will have to go back soon to see the cafe!!

Last week I received my latest Adagio order which included 2 of their mugs- I got one of each style to see which I prefer (barn red and forest friends) Thus far, my take away lesson is the importance of having a lid on top of the tea mug! Its been awhile since I drank from my adagio see through mug and jumbo cup but I do not recall them keeping the tea as warm as these porcelain ones. I will be a spoiled tea drinker to say I need more of these style cups in my life! How did I ever manage life pre-discovery!? Does anyone else feel the same?
09:47 am
user icon
I recently received my CommuniTea mug that I earned and I totally love it. I wasn't sure I was going to, but it's perfect for a single cup and I like the setup with the lid and strainer. I usually brew 2 cups at a time with my tea travel mug (which has a lid, so it's kept warm) and pour into a jumbo sized mug. The self-contained unit of the mug/strainer/lid is brilliant!
01:03 pm

I love the steeping cups. I have four, and I bought one for each of the women who will be joining me for our December get together. I also got them mini-tins of their zodiac tea!! The steeping cups rule! My husband even uses one, but he only likes my Winter Spice of Life blend!

Didn’t someone here say it was the Lakanto brand monk fruit liquid that was their fave sweetener? Was doing a little shopping and finally found it. I think that was the brand name mentioned here.

I'm a huge fan of the NuNaturals Stevia drops. I find it doesn't have a weird aftertaste like a lot of stevia and it's super convenient in the drop format.

I like that "it's just!" brand of the monk fruit extract because it's just monk fruit and nothing else no erythritol
06:02 pm

Yes, many have mentioned to avoid the ones with erythritol. I’ll add this one to my future try list. Thanks!

Irish breakfast is a nostalgic favorite of mine. Even before I drank tea as much as I did, granny sometimes made me a cup of Irish breakfast when I'd come over to stay or help out. This December I'll probably be helping her find teas for her Christmas tea party, and Irish Breakfast usually finds its way onto the lineup. Today I tried switching things up: a rip van waffle over my mug to warm up. and be a lid. Tasty!

Angelic gets credit for the reminder. I usually wait until around the first of the month, but with holidays picking up, I figured getting december shipped out as early as possible would relieve my stress about timely arrival and be one less thing for adagio to handle during the crush that is coming! Now...if I could just get my christmas shopping done in such an orderly fashion...

I tried the Lardera Kenya washed coffee sample this morning -- it's really good! Nice fresh coffee taste with a bit of chocolate/sweet nuances. Will have to start pouring through a filter when I brew from fresh ground ....my coffee maker slings the grounds into my cup every time. Or I need one of those filter spoons...bombillas....like Jentina has in her photos to get coffee without grounds in it. Really good coffee though! Can't wait to try the other kinds....I got one of each!
10:48 am
user icon
I am waiting for mine to arrive. How did you grind it. All I have is a spice grinder . Is that strong enough?
11:46 am
user icon
Usually spice and coffee bean grinders are pretty similar. Once you use it for coffee though you shouldn’t use it for spices anymore.
04:47 pm
user icon
You'll definitely want a coffee grinder for beans because you'll need to grind accordingly to the method that you're Brewing. Every Brewing method requires a different grind size like Chemex , drip, French press, and espresso all take different size grind. I used to be the coffee lady and I've been certified as a barista and bar maintenance back in the day LOL

Straight up black tea without flavors; didn't think I'd like it, but I did.
12:23 pm

I decided to add in some of my Irish Breakfast stash so I could brew a whole pot instead of just a cup this morning!
12:27 pm

English Breakfast is a staple in my house. I enjoyed the Irish Breakfast just as much or maybe a bit more!
12:29 pm

Every now and then it's nice to have a good old cuppa without added flavors, and this one hit the spot. I did a second steep and added a splash of vanilla almond milk and, and now I think I might have to add this tea to my growing stash.
12:38 pm

I only got a couple sips out of this one, because my tea infuser had a uh, catastrophic failure... I came back after 3 min and all the tea was on the counter and the floor! It's an old teavana infuser on its last leg... might grab the adagio one next order... no sense crying over spilled tea right?
12:43 pm

I've had that happen. It's quite the surprise!

I have the old teavana 32oz one that I just love when my husband and I are drinking the same tea. I am going to be so sad when it dies.

I admit, after today's tea, and all the comments, I went and looked up Scottish Breakfast (since I'm actually of scottish decent, I figured I'd have an innate preference anyway). Realized it had Yunnan in it. Then wanted to cry when I realized it's already been used in 2021's CommuniTEA (Feb 20, based on reviews). I started March 1!!! Oh well. Building my wishlist for Christmas 😋 UPDATE: WOW. I mean, I knew you guys were amazing. Thank you Rachel and Michelle! Now I don't need to wait till Christmas!

Is it so wrong that I have not been watering my husbands avocado tree just to see if he kills it, but it won’t die? We started it as an experiment when I showed him how to grow a plant in the water from a seed. Those things never seem to last and we live in the Midwest, so I wasn’t worried. Well it’s in dirt and very much alive. Very much a mini tree, haha! Thats the plant in my picture.
02:06 pm
user icon
I say I'm going to do that every year and never do. Inspiring! 😄
02:08 pm
user icon
Why are you trying to kill it? You're probably right that it won't last, but I say keep the experiment going! I'd love to have avocados in my backyard. :)
02:59 pm
user icon
A little factoid: there is something like only a 1 in 10,000 chance that you'll get edible fruit by growing an avocado tree from a pit. You'll likely get fruit, but it won't taste good! It's something about hybrids and cross-breeding that make the seed not replicate the plant it came from.

Hello, tea friends! I was so tired last night I forgot to check in the chat. Hope you are having a wonderful day. This is like a Friday for me, because the rest of the week is Fall Break. I hope to catch up on tea tasting and maybe even get to join in the tea chat on Friday. My picture today is of a Pliea peperomiodes "Chinese money plant" that I rescued. I like to take a picture of it every once in a while to be able to compare it to when I first got it. It is a very unique looking and growing indoor plant!

As suspected, this tea doesn't do it for me. I could drink it all and not dislike the experience, but letting my girlfriend drink it instead is the much better option. She loves breakfast teas. For me, today I'm having Banana Bread tea I got from dollar tea club. I suspect it'll be very good sweetened with brown sugar

I can say I’ve actually tried Irish Breakfast in the Teas of India and Sri Lanka and I like it very much. In general, I like Irish Breakfast so much better than English Breakfast. However, I go back and forth trying to decide if I like Twinings Irish Breakfast

Which has a blend of 4 different teas, or Adagios better. In they end they are both good!

Irish breakfast tea is my favorite breakfast tea and i've have been wanting to try Adaigio's for a while now. It's delicious but I prefer straight assam to assam mixed with Ceylon. I'll be buying assam melody when I run out instead of this Irish breakfast.

Although I usually reach for the fun flavors, it was nice to try a plainer basic tea today.
