From Harney & Sons

100% Assam, like most traditional Irish blends, this is a good way to start your morning. Like cereal, it takes milk and sugar well. In contrast to other vendors, ours is a little more refined.

A nice, bold cuppa
I spiked it with a bit of honey…

This one stands up well for a solid re-steep
(2nd steep is great!)
Thanks Harney & Sons…

I like a nice Assam in the morning. I take it with a splash of 2% milk. My main requirements is to have this strong and malty. This is not bad. I suspect I will keep looking for the “perfect” morning cup, but this can stay in the kitchen as I search. It’s a nice quality CTC leaf, the dry leaf has a great scent. I brewed this up in the One Touch and it made a nice morning cup.

Drinking this for my morning cup. I wanted a breakfast tea, but English Breakfast is a little too mellow for my tastes. This Irish Breakfast is similar to Twinings in taste, but with much nicer depth of flavor. I don’t add things to my tea, and though this one is pretty strong, I almost wish I had gotten one of their Scottish blends, which are supposedly stronger.

A favorite in the morning, with a nice amount of CTC Assam in it to give it a hardy boost of flavour and body.

At Au Bon Pain right now and decided to get this. Good tea. It’s not something I would go out of my way to purchase on its own at the supermarket, but I wouldn’t mind getting a cup if I’m in ABP again.
