I absolutely love this tea!!! It has a bold strong flavor, great aroma, and is totally addicting.....The morning that I skip it for whatever reason is not a right start of the day.

For me this is much less interesting than Barry's Gold Blend. Perhaps because I drink my tea clear, I find this more astringent version to less palatable. The malt is there, but also a bitterness I don't really enjoy.

This tea has a rich, smoky aroma. The flavor is crisp. I really like it. It's a little bitter if brewed too long. I added cream and sugar.

was given a tin of this as a gift by a friend who knows my tea-drinking habits very well ;) the tin has been empty for quite a long time now (it's too cute to toss out) and it still smells of tea. absolutely the best irish breakfast i have ever tried. was very sorry to see it go!

smells like heaven. i have tried my share of Irish Breakfasts, it's one of my favorite kinds of tea. this is up there with the best. it's hard to stop at one cup, even on days when i've sworn to myself to tone down the caffiene! more than satisfies the craving i often have for a nice, solid cup of tea.

While this is not my favorite selection of the F&M line. It's a fairly good quality cup. R&M'S Royal Blend, Celebration, and Queen Anne are fabulously unforgetable teas.

Aug. 17th, 2012

Tea bag has little aroma, but upon brewing the aroma really emerges...rich, malty, and complex.

Brews a very dark cup, very full-bodied and thick. Although this is among the most full-bodied teas I've sampled in quite a long time, and the aroma is powerful, the flavor is surprisingly weak, especially for this style...

This tea is interesting. The first thing I notice is that it smells like beets - not a flavor that I like to associate with tea, at least not in this context. The flavor is good, though. At first it seemed weird, but after a few sips it started to taste really good. I added cream and sugar.

A few years ago, this was a very good tea. Just tried the current release. Bleh! An overly herbacious black tea overwhelms the rest of the cup.

A nice hearty tea with a great smell. Easy to brew for a non-Irish person and still have good tasting tea. I like this tea for my afternoon break - if my regular tea isn't available.

I think it is an average tea with not much of a difference between Twinings English Breakfast tea. If your just looking for a good breakfast tea, there are other black teas that are just as good, but a little cheaper.

Sep. 8th, 2011

This is the dark, bitter brother to Taylor's Scottish breakfast tea. Blended to be drunk with milk, it is a real eye opener if you try it alone. Hearty rather than robust, it makes a pretty decent cup with some malty flavor and only a tiny bit of brightness.

I bought 20 bags for about $3 at a local import store, wh...

Sep. 5th, 2011

This was a solid Assam or Irish Breakfast from a tea bag, with a fairly complex aroma, definitely one of the best strong black teas I've had from such a simple tea bag of broken-leaf tea.

Sharp, edgy, piercing, yet full-bodied and having depth. Aroma has tones of malt, dried fruit, rice, and red wine. Very fresh t...

Jul. 24th, 2011

This is a really nice everyday black tea of moderate price and good quality. I am really picky about my Ceylon teas, like the 'Ceylon Sonata' that they use in this blend, and it is actually much improved in flavor by the 'Assam Melody' that they blend with it.

You get the typical nice robust aroma and flavor with t...

Good tea for breakfast. Not much aroma, but decent taste, and it's strong. Weirdly, it beats Teavana's several strong black teas hands down. Tastier. I like tea that tastes like tea, not dishwater.

TJ's version of Irish Breakfast tastes like primarily Kenyan OP with a bit of Assam added for depth and body. There is not much of the malty character I look for in an Irish Breakfast tea. I have some loose leaf single estate Kenyan OP's which taste and smell very similar and make great iced tea. I think iced tea is wh...

Irish Breakfast from Mrs. Robinson's Tea Shop

Dec. 6th, 2010

Intensely malty, with deep undertones of sweet dried fruit, giving way to a bitter and rather tannic aftertaste. Very powerful. Even if you use sparing amounts of leaf, this brews a very powerful cup.

I like this because it blends the deep, malty characteristics of an Assam with the fruitier aspects of a good Keem...

This is my favorite tea so far from the Boston Tea Company. Although Irish Breakfast isn't my favorite style of black tea, this is without a doubt my favorite Irish breakfast tea yet, and I find this particular blend to stand out among any kind of strong black tea.

The aroma is complex, powerful, and surprisingly f...

This is what I'd expect from this style: a very strong black tea, bitter, full-bodied, and very malty. It isn't my favorite type of tea but for what it is, and for the fact that it's in teabags, I think it's pretty good.

This tea really works best with one teabag per cup. It's strong enough that you can brew it mo...

Smooth and silky on the tongue, with a malty aftertaste that Irish breakfasts are known for, but less malty than most. Regarding value, worth twice the price paid Overall a great value, rich flavor, silky smooth mouth feel.

This is my everyday breakfast tea. Deeper and darker colored than an English breakfast, this very full-bodied black tea (with a splash of milk) is one of the most satisfying teas I've ever had. Not elegant, but full throttle flavors and finish. I buy it 2# at a time for $32. UPDATE: Special Teas has closed its doors. O...
