This is a blend of assam and Kenyan tea which is blended in Belfast. It is a large tea bag without any strings. This is an excellent breakfast tea. I can distinguish both teas in this blend. It is inexpensive ($3 for 80 bags). At 3 minutes it steeps up dark with no bitterness and only slight astringency. I really enjoyed this tea, but then I love strong teas.
Irish Breakfast Tea
This luxurious blend produces a rich rounded character, thanks to Assams finest leaves, and a bright fresh finish derived from tea leaves which are picked from the high grown slopes in the prestigious East of Rift Valley region of Kenya.
Punjana Irish Breakfast has recently discovered a fan base in the United States, and, appropriately, the first shipment arrived safely ashore in Boston, where thankfully there was no repetition of the infamous Boston Tea Party in 1773.
