Irish Breackfast

$ 5.99

The Harneys have been out of Ireland for sometime, so our Irish Breakfast is an older version. This tea recalls a time when the teas came from Assam, not Africa; and were small broken leaves, not CTC pellets. So this is a simple tea that can handle milk and sugar well.
Dry Leaves Dark brown leaves.
Liquor A medium-dark brown liquor.
Aroma This has some of the malty aromas found in other Assams. However, since it is a smaller tea and there are no tips, the aromas seem to be muted.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This has very good body. It is usually drunk with milk. Of course the Irish would have it no other way.
Flavors This is usually drunk with milk and sugar, so the flavors harmonize well with them. There are subtle notes of roast malt.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
