Perfect for breakfast — it steeps super-fast with great taste. I think it gives a fuller flavor than the Twinings Irish Breakfast teabags, but steeps in about the same time. I need to experiment with water temperature to find the highest it can stand.
I definitely like this one better than River Shannon — it’s pure Assam tea rather than a blend of Assam and Ceylon. I think it’s more a matter of personal taste, though, as I love the Assam.
