From SpecialTeas

This Irish Breakfast tea is a blend of broken Assam, Nilgiri and China blacks. The aroma reflects the heartiness of an Assam as well as the smoothness and slightly lemony taste of a Nilgiri.

Recommendations: Use 1 heaping tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water to a roaring boil; let steep for 3-4 min. Try with milk and rock sugar.

I found this to be an enjoyable cup. I added a little sugar and a splash of milk.

First off, the tea leaves were crumbled and broken, not full and long like in the picture. The tea still tastes fantastic however. The dry leaves let off a rich, full bouquet. Once wet, they smelled like, well, I can only describe them as smelling of tea!

The first wave of flavor is almost nonexistent, followed by a full-bodied early-middle note. The Assam really kicks in right in the middle, with that heavy, dark taste I love so much. The flavors move smoothly, with a lemony, nutty finish. The after taste is slightly astringent, but not bitter. The conclusion of each sip leaves me looking forward to another one.

This is a solid and dependable tea, and I daresay it is very affordable. I’d recommend it for all ranges of experience, because it tastes like what one would expect from an Irish Breakfast, but it has complicated undertones that those who are well schooled can appreciate.
