Coffee drinkers, take note! November 26, 2014


Jacksonville, IL

As a devout coffee drinker, this tea has me contemplating a change for my morning cup. A splash of milk or half and half along with a bit of honey makes this a very strong competitor for my trusty cup of coffee. Even without the milk and honey, it's delicious. I typically go for sweeter, dessert teas but this one is a great staple to have in your pantry.

Best Breakfast Tea Bar None! September 15, 2014


Canaan, NY

Have tried all of the Republic of Tea breakfast teas and other brands as well. Lucky Irish is the most full bodied and flavorful. There is something about an Irish breakfast tea and beats an English tea by far. It is not bitter or too strong, It has a very pleasing flavor. After Lucky Irish, other breakfast teas seemed bland and lacking in flavor.

my favorite June 24, 2014


brenham, TX

I have several dozen kinds of tea, and lucky Irish is by far my favorite. I hate to use this phrase, but it is full-bodied and deeply rich. No fruits or flowers to distract from a perfect cup of tea!

Milder than English Breakfast Tea - yet the caffeine is enough to get you going in the AM.

Top O'the Morning! March 27, 2014


Sarasota, FL

This is probably the highest quality Irish Breakfast Tea I have ever tried. The flavor sings and it's a great eye-opener in the morning. I have found myself noticing how delicious this is at the first sip and the second and the fifth, etc. Really great!

Luck of the Irish March 19, 2014


Norwood, NY

Wow did I luck out with this new try. Having lived in London I tend to stick to carious English black blends but I thought I might give the Irish a try. This is a wonderful, mellow tea that I found quite soothing. Although it is listed as a breakfast tea, I find it wonderful at any hour.

Great Tea for Combinations February 21, 2014


Boulder, CO

Great tea in combination with the Black Sweet tea. (I use a larger cup than most people so it's just the right amount.)

Tea Worth a Ten-Teapot Rating! January 23, 2014


Fayetteville, AR

I have been hooked on Lucky Irish tea for several years. My day doesn't go well without it. The delicious malty flavor goes so well with a touch of sweetness and a splash of cream. It is truly delightful and continues to be my favorite. I highly recommend it!

Almost a Decade of First Choice December 21, 2013

Micki Smith-Darnauer

Silver Spring , MD

Tea is my drink of choice whether hot or cold. For almost a decade, I've been drinking Irish Lucky morning through dinner. It offers enough oomph to get me moving, enough taste to satisfy my palate, and enough "tea-ness" to keep my happy.

Great malt flavor! March 24, 2013


Schell City, MO

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 January 08, 2013


San Ramon, CA

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 December 23, 2012


madison, WI

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.

Full-Bodied November 28, 2012

Marsha Hnat

Pascagoula, MS

This is the most full-bodied of the breakfast teas. The rich flavor warms you as you drink it. While I enjoy drinking this tea when the weather is chilly, it is a little too stimulating for hot weather, hence the four teapots instead of five.

Quite Satisfactory October 02, 2012

John Wilkins

Galion, OH

I am a fan of many black teas, and while this tea is certainly among the top in my selection, I must admit that I found nothing "outstanding" as regards its flavor. It is pleasing, calm, smooth with a slightly astringent after taste, reminiscent of a good 12 year old scotch. Please, do not misunderstand. I found it most entertaining and delightful and I'm sure I will order more of this tea. But it did not overwhelm me with savoriness. But then we cannot be overwhelmed at every occurrence, now can we?

Ray Chirayath

Inverness, FL

I've been hooked on Irish tea ever since my trip to Ireland about 5 years ago. Over these last several years I used to wake up to a different Irish (one that is made in Ireland) tea. Lucky Irish has great flavor - I would prefer if it were stronger. Just a personal preference I guess. I just use two bags each time and that works well.

A Morning Requirement July 22, 2012

, CA

I've started every day for the last 3 years with a cup of Lucky Irish Breakfast. I simply don't feel sane without my morning cup, and this tea best meets my morning requirements: strong, delicious, and stands up well with milk & sugar. My Irish grandmother would approve; certainly, I do!

Brings back tea memories July 02, 2012


Winnemucca, NV

This tea is so reminiscent of the delicious tea I savored on a long ago trip to Germany. I was never able to find the exact variety that I tasted there until I discovered Lucky Irish Breakfast.This tea is rich and smooth and a perfect midmorning pick-me-up! I keep some at work just for that purpose.

I was surprised! May 29, 2012


Medford, OR

I had to google "what does malty taste like", and still wasn't sure. So I took a chance, ordered this, and was pleasantly surprised! My first sip had me smiling. Very flavorful, just right. I added a splash of cream and a sprinkle of stevia. A wonderful way to perk up my afternoon. Very very nice and smooth!

If you enjoy English Breakfast Tea, treat yourself to a new delight by pouring a cup of this. I have a couple dozen varieties of teas in my cupboard, and, this is one of my favorites that I can savor day or night.

Start the Day with the Irish November 10, 2011

Micki Smith-Darnauer

Hedgesville, WV

Every morning I wake to the world with a steaming cup of "Irish." The day is now in focus. People say I make the best iced tea ever and I reply, "It's all in the tea bag--the Irish does it all." Irish gets consumed in this house every day of the year and then some.

I start my day with Lucky Irish Breakfast. It is the best way to get me started on my day. Sometimes I add a tad of Almond Milk to it. I drink it everyday religiously.
