100% Assam, like most traditional Irish blends. This is a good way to start your morning, and like cereal, it takes milk and sugar well. In contrast to other vendors, ours is a little more refined. Our 50ct box of Irish Breakfast tea is Kosher, and is caffeinated.
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.
