From Murchie's Tea & Coffee

Irish Breakfast – Choice Ceylon and India’s Assam blended for those who need a brisk awakening.

For many, the day just doesn’t start out right without a cup of Irish Breakfast tea.

A hearty blend of bright, high grade Ceylon teas, underscored by the deep flavours of golden tipped Assam. May be enjoyed plain, or with milk.

I have enjoyed this tea several times, trying to get some thoughts written down with little success. Therefore, rather than being a review of one cup, this entry is more of an overview.

I have chosen this cup several times for different reasons. It has a strong enough flavour (somewhere between English Breakfast and Orange Pekoe), but it is still smooth and gentle, especially as it cools. I think it is the Assam in the blend that lends it such smoothness (I am told that Assam is ‘malty’, but I don’t know what ‘malty’ tastes like!) I think it’s good for the “brisk awakening” it promises.

The problem, I find, is that it is difficult to think of something interesting to say about it. Don’t get me wrong, I love this tea – it’s a delicious, delightful cup – but nothing really stands out about it. I can’t think of much that sets it apart from other "breakfast’ teas aside from its strength.

The verdict is that this is a wonderful medium-strength cup, but doesn’t do much of anything to set itself apart as something special. Perhaps that is just the way with breakfast teas.

Recommended for those looking for a slightly stronger breakfast tea.

I have read that malty means it is sort of yeasty and bready. There’s a post in the general discussion on he forum that goes into malty more. Breakfast teas I think, are just that. I’m now sure there’s really a wow factor to them, but maybe I just haven’t been wowed. Wanna get together Monday or Tuesday after work?
