drank Irish Breakfast by Twinings
120 tasting notes

My sister is now supporting my tea habit, she helped me find this in the area. I had tried the bagged version, but I must say, being able to control the flavor better with loose leaf makes this tea even better. I have a personal philosophy about breakfast teas, I want them strong. So, I had a nice breakfast on my day off (inspired by Ashmanra and her torture methods of the weekend last) Fried egg with sausage, cheddar cheese on grilled rye with a dash of brown mustard. No potatoes in the house to pair with the onions, so I skipped that part. The Assam in this tea stays with you a long time after the sip, I like that, a lingering reminder till time for another. It is actually a cool rainy morning, not a typical August day at all. This tea, and a simple meal, on the front porch make for a wonderful start of the day.

I had no idea Twinings did loose tea! I’ve never seen it on a shelf, anywhere. I’m curious now!

You can get it on their web page, but mine came from a kitchen gadget store…

Their loose leaf selection is pretty limited but should be on most shelves in the super box store.

Hmmm. I’ve looked for looseleaf at the supermarket and never had luck. Still, I’m def keeping my eye out :)

Our local grocer carries only two loose leaf, but A Southern Season has more. Of course, they were out of the one I wanted last time I drove up there…

Funny thing, I asked my daughter’s Irish boyfriend if he liked Irish breakfast tea the first time he had dinner with us, and he said he had never heard of it! He recently sent me some Twinings teabags from the assortment box they sell there, and the one we call Irish breakfast is simply labeled Assam.

Here’s to loving family enablers. Haven’t found Twinings loose leaf locally, but the bagged version is a good, solid reliable basic.

I know another place in Tulsa if you ever go down I-44…
Loved you post about the teashop I’m Nashville BTW.
Consuming tea in antique cups is one of my hobbies.
