A very robust tea, with plenty of Kenya and Assam. This stronger tea makes a great start to the day. Each Tropical Tea Company order helps deliver clean drinking water to a child who lacks it.

It’s a dreary overcast day, and after sleeping most of it away, an Irish Breakfast was the only way I could imagine facing the remainder. I was raised with Twinning’s Irish Breakfast as 90% of what I knew tea was. As a result, Irish Breakfast blends do two things for me. First they’re a reminder of better days. Less confusing and infinitely more simple. Secondly, they provide a hearty strength I can’t always muster. They take a day like today and add a bit of volume to those silent grays.
While I can’t go on record to call this my hands down favorite Irish Breakfast, it’s exactly what I needed today.
