Deep, Dark, Delightful. A traditional blend of Assam (India) and high-grown Ceylon (Sri Lanka) leaves. This hearty brew has a malty character, brisk finish and a rich color. Sure to lift the fog of a cloudy mind. Enjoy with a splash of milk for a cup that satisfies well beyond breakfast.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

I love the malty kick in this great full-bodied tea. It is not bitter like some of the stronger black teas. I put milk (and sometimes half-and-half!) in it, which makes it almost taste like a rich, caloried drink. However, I sure wish it came in a decaffeinated form, like your British Breakfast Tea.

Assam is one of my favorite teas so the blend is perfect. Great morning eye opener.
A wonderful Christmas treat

This Christmas, I treated myself and my family to several gourmet teas. My breakfast is always a very large cup of strong tea with sugar and milk. It starts the day out right. So far, the Lucky Irish tea is my favorite of the teas I ordered. It has a mellow, smooth taste and stands up to the milk and sugar, if I brew my cup using two tea bags. It is too bad that I used the last of it yesterday. I'll be placing an order for more today.
deliciously strong tea

This is my first choice for early mornings when I don't have time to brew a pot of loose leaf tea. The tea is strong and invigorating. I don't add anything to it. I love the malty, dark taste.
