From Adagio Teas

A new combination of black teas from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Assam (India). As its name implies, Irish Breakfast tea is an ideal accompaniment to a morning meal. It smoothly blends the high notes of a high-grown Ceylon with the malty underscore of a hearty Assam. May be enjoyed plain or with a drop of milk. The perfect afternoon tea.

This was the last of my tea samples from Christmas. It actually tastes pretty good. I wasn’t sure if I would like it because I tried Adagio’s Ceylon and Assam too and well, didn’t fall in love with them. But they seem to work pretty well together. Maybe I just brewed them wrong last time, but there was almost no bitterness to the Irish Breakfast. Just pure, yummy tea flavor. Mmmm… Plus, most things Irish are just cool. :D

This tea is absolutely great! I like to drink this one when I am in the mood for dark teas instead of Oolong or Greens. It is much milder than English Breakfast and is much like the teas I used to drink in Turkey. It is a good sipping tea.

I can’t believe that I have taken this long to write about this tea. I have almost finished the tin and this is my first note. I love this tea. It is my go to morning tea during the fall. I seem to change morning teas with the seasons. I usually drink this one with just some unprocessed natural amber sugar, but this morning I thew a splash of my wife’s “skinny caramel machiato” coffee creamer for a little tea latte and I must say this was the best I have ever had this tea taste. The milky creamer brought out the rich malty taste that the tea naturally has and the caramel just enhanced this. I highly recommend giving this a try.

I started me workday this morning with adagio’s irish breakfast. I’m not sure why i keep coming back to it, because I don’t particularly enjoy the flavor. I guess it is a soothing pick-me-up for a Monday morning.

Now this is the kind of tea I could see myself drinking every morning as a coffee replacement. The taste is a little richer than a lot of the more common bagged black teas I have been drinking on a regular basis (PG Tips, Twinings, etc), but overall it is fairly similar in overall “tea genre.” That’s to be expected, as it’s an Irish Breakfast blend. I have yet to decide whether I prefer it over Adagio’s England Breakfast but it’s really quite good either way.

I didn’t find anything super special about this tea but it was a really good black tea. I don’t drink too many black teas hot; I think some lemon would made it perfect.

I really like this tea. It tastes a bit like Golden Monkey, but without the chocolate.

Nice smooth blend. Perfect for morning – also easily blended with other teas. Basic black.

Backlogging, since my Internet has been out most of the day. This is a good, basic black. I like the fact that it’s not as terribly strong as the only other Assam I have in my cupboard. The Assam and Ceylon mix is a good one. Stood up well to cream.

This is a fantastic morning tea. A little too bold for the evening, but just right for a morning coffee replacement when you need a little “get up and go”.
