Tea of the Week – Irish Breakfast
Name: Irish Breakfast
Region: Sri Lanka and India
Bought At: Adagio.com
Price: $2 for a 10-cup sample
First Impressions: Strong, Dark
Since today was St Patty’s day I thought it would be fitting to try the Irish breakfast that I hadn’t had a chance to drink. It was a good morning drink, a strong black tea, but not bitter. Like it’s name it was a lot like the English Breakfast that I enjoy, but a little lighter. Looked it up and found that it’s a blend of Ceylon from Sri Lanka and Assam from India. I really liked it with a touch of milk, it smoothed it out nicely. In the end I think I like English Breakfast a little better, but this would do in a pinch!
