The only tea I had yesterday for St Patrick’s day was a bagged Wegmans green – shocker! I was at my roommate’s for the weekend, and that’s all they have in they have. Not that I’m a tea snot or anything :)

So I’m making up for it today. My trip to Ireland in April 2010 was what started me drinking tea, and there’s a special place in my heart for IBs. I need to wake up because (1) I’m about to drive 300 miles home, and (2) I just had breakfast and it’s 1:30 PM. Whoof.

Just tossing this sachet in and hitting the road. Doesn’t get bitter. YAY.

My future son-in-law is Irish, still lives there in fact. The very first time he came to visit I asked if he liked Irish Breakfast. He said he had never heard of it! He loved it, though, and told me that was just called tea over there.

Thank you Epi Tea for this sample!

This was my first morning cup, and perfect to pretend that I’m not in the highlands of the American Western Rocky Mountains…but somewhere in Ireland in the high hills between that fair land and Scotland.
It’s a cooler morning today than usual. This will soon pass, and another of the record breaking over 90 degree days (now around 30 straight) will heat up only to be broken in the late afternoon by purple clouds…large and ominous, hanging over the high range ready to burst with torrents of rain.

Irish Tea it should be I had determined.

It did seem odd to have a sachet with no string. Am I old fashioned? Should I be concerned that I could possibly save a string making machine or a tree by the elimination of the teabag string? Am I lazy wanting a string instead of fishing out the teabag with my spoon, fingers or a pen?

No matter.

The brew time was long enough to walk away for 5 minutes and fix my tea tray with milk and sugar for a proper sit down.
I tasted the red-brown brew which was slightly astringent and smoky. There was no maltiness but the overall black taste with the smoke was hardy. The addition of sugar and cream was comforting, this being the type of tea that I would most likely drink in colder weather in the morning with toast and jam.

This is not an outstanding knock your socks off tea but the kind that we all look to for reliability in our cupboards. The good standard morning cup.

Celestial Seasonings doesn’t have them with strings either which is okay for an herbal but for everything else I really would like an easy removal! Why should I have to dirty a spoon?

Bonnie

If you have a spoon…you might be at a desk and use a pen…gross or burn fingers!

Think of all the poor tea bag string makers being put out of work! For shame!

Bonnie

I know, it upset the whole economy!

momo

Hahaha and those were highly specialized workers, now what do they do?

Bonnie

Kites! Longer strings! Balloons? YOYO’S!

Thanks to Epi Tea for this sample!

Personally, I found this tea to be very smooth and only a small amount of bitterness towards the end of the sip. The boldness that I expected, really wasn’t present with this tea. That’s not saying it was weak, it was only more subdued than anticipated.

The leaves were very dark and had plenty of room to infuse in the pyramid sachet. It seemed the leaves turn more golden during the infusion and the liquid color seemed to mirror this slightly parched honey wheat tone.

I must say, this was more of a treat than expected. Plenty of sweetness and malty thickness – nice and mellow.

This is a VERY mellow Irish Breakfast. It doesn’t taste bad but it’s not the KICK I was hoping for. I’ve always loved the strong, bold, dark, Irish Breakfast Teas…this was mellow and weak. I was hoping for stronger in the hot version but this is pretty good iced having said that. So this rating is for the ICED version instead.

Finally getting a chance to taste one of the teas from Epi Tea. This is a really good Irish Breakfast. It is smoother and a bit milder than I’d expect from a traditional Irish Breakfast tea, but, I like that it’s not bitter and that it has a very pleasing caramel-y undertone. Nice and malty, and invigorating too.

Tasty!

Mild in flavor. Not your typical bold Irish Breakfast but could work for some. A full review on my blog…

Not a huge expert on Irish breakfast tea (in fact this may be my first). Apparently this is supposed to be composed of mainly Assam. No idea what Assam by itself tastes like, so new mission: find a black tea sampler of straight black tea that is commonly used in blends. Then I will learn!

Anyway, really nice looking dark cup (I do love my black tea), the taste is pretty generic “black tea”, but smooth. A nice hint of smoke. Definitely a tea bag I would take along for travel.

First Tea of the day before work…. blah.

The smell of this is kinda like Liptons, but with a hint of coco. It also makes a nice reddish brown liquor. The taste is what I expected. Your basic malty black tea, but with a little ity bit of coco after taste. It is not very astringent, which is nice.

I am not going to rate it cause personally I don’t care for Irish or English breakfast teas. They are good for mixing in flavors(I put a cina disk in mine), but they are just to boring for me. It is not bad though.

Overall I would recommend this to someone who likes malty, or breakfast teas.

Ya know I totally get your point although there are times all I want is a straight breakfast tea. Especially on those mornings I feel pretty bland lol.

Ze_Teamaker

ahaah, Si. It was a good tea. I just felt like rating it would do the tea an injustice. It is kinda like a nice plain coffee that you just want to add sugar and cream to and just drink.

I would like to once again thank Epi Tea the opportunity to sample their pre-launched tea blends. I think that it is great that they are launching their company in a few weeks and that they value the opinions of tea drinkers, including our community at Steepster.
First and foremost, I would like to say that I love drinking English Breakfast blends, so I was excited about trying their Irish Breakfast.
The Irish Breakfast came in a biodegradable pyramid sachet. I brewed it to boiling temperature and it was steeped for approximately five minutes. The liquor was reddish-brown.
I personally believe that this blend makes an adequate cup of tea, however it lacks a “wow” factor. I can’t pinpoint it exactly, but it’s missing something that would make this blend fantastic.
