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.
First place winner of the North American Tea Championship Breakfast Blend category.
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 ordered the sample tin because I wasn't sure if I would like this tea. I found that I liked it even more than English Breakfast. It's an excellent morning tea. Next time, I will order a larger quantity.
The gold standard
January 26, 2013
As far as I'm concerned, this is the gold standard of morning tea. I'm always ordering taster tins of other things to compare, but I come back to this time and time again. It's robust yet balanced - exactly what black tea should be - and Republic of Tea offers a really good quality Irish. I could happily drink this every morning for life. I think it's a notch above the British Breakfast, for those of you trying to decide.

I adore this tea. It is just strong enough for my taste. It is always pleasing to my pallet.
I highly recommend this for those who like a black tea.

This company's version of one of my favorite teas - Irish Breakfast Tea - has become the ultimate for me. I have tried a number of different brands of this flavor, but Republic of Tea has perfected it to a level of goodness and beauty that makes me want to drink cup after cup. I will be restocking this tea whenever it runs out. Probably sooner rather than later.
