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.

This breakfast blend is the best. I have tried numerous teas from many places. Republic of Tea has a winner with this one. The leaves provide a full bodied, smooth cup that can be enjoyed throughout the day.
Love this tea!

Soothing, smooth, colorful, fragrant, unbitter, tannin-low. I agree with one of the other reviewers: this is better than the other TROT "Breakfast" teas in my opinion. If the polite term "brisk" means "high tannin-bite", then this is not! thankfully. I hate that bitter aftertaste and it isn't here. Flavorful, easy to brew, medium body, forgiving - just good daily tea inexpensively
Great cuppa and not just for breakfast!

This tea is good by the mug or pot. Drink this with a splash of skim milk.Warm milk is best,but cold will do. Love the loose leaf teas. No sweeteners in my teas most times,but if my throat needs soothing I will add honey.

Irish Breakfast is such a simple tea, you wouldn't think there'd be a difference from one to another. But there is. This tea is the best. Rich flavor with absolutely no bitterness. I like to mix it with Earl Greyer to get an even deeper black tea flavor. It's divine.
