From Twinings

A strong, full-bodied black tea from the regions of Ceylon and Assam expertly blended with a hearty flavor and delightful aroma.

The Irish really love their tea and are amongst the most frequent drinkers of tea around the world. In celebration of this tea drinking tradition, Twinings blended a special Irish Breakfast Blend. This tea is best taken with milk and sweetened to taste to bring out the best flavor.

Honestly one of my favourite teas, fully of peaty overtones that make me warm down to my toes. Takes milk really well and a great way to start off the day.

This tea is tough as balls. It also tastes very good. I like strong tea, and usually leave the bag in forever, but this bag I take out. It’s great with a tiny bit of soy milk and a tiny sprinkle of sugar. Next box, I’m ditching the sugar. I can’t wait to get this again.

i mostly buy this tea bagged, except when i’m desperate. it makes a good strong cuppa first thing in the wee small hours. my local grocery store has stopped selling the bagged version though, so i’m screwed.

I like this tea better than English Breakfast, I would say. It has a bolder flavor to it which I like.

Moving has meant that I haven’t had my PG tips for the last couple of weeks, and although I enjoy all of the trappings of loose-leaf tea once I’ve had some caffeine in me, I just cannot do it first thing in the morning. Found a box of these teabags in a cupboard and decided to give it a go- and was pleasantly surprised! This is a very enjoyable tea, and it’s significantly hardier than PG tips (which I’ve found needs to be brewed more like a green). It’s really very delicious, hearty, and full-bodied, perfect for the morning!

So being a lazy college student, I never add milk to my tea, and I never have a problem with the tea I drink. I ran out of tea and snagged some Irish Breakfast from a friend, and did not enjoy the first sip. However, after adding some milk, I found it very enjoyable. There really is a first time for everything.
