Barry's Irish Breakfast from Barry's Tea

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 17th, 2019

It's been a while since I've had tea from Barry's. I've had the Gold Blend in the past and I really liked it so I figured I would try the Irish Breakfast. On the front on the box it says it's their "lightest and most refreshing blend," but I don't agree with that haha!

It brews up a nice dark color with some slight...

Gold Blend from Barry's Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

The dry tea is strange-looking. I think it's CTC tea that has been broken up into smaller pieces. Each teabag contains 3g of tea, so expect a strong cup of tea if you're used to American teabags.

Dry, it smells like CTC Assam tea, malty, tannic and slightly smoky. Adding the water opens up the aroma, which is rich a...

This was a humble flat paper tea bag that surprised me with its quality. It was very different from the Gold Blend (the one with the red label) from this same company.

Brews a very rich, dark cup that is thick and full-flavored. The aroma is strongly malty, and upon drinking the whole cup there's a hint of winterg...

I really enjoy the flavor of this tea. I have only had it hot but plan on icing it this summer. I expect it to be delicious iced, too.

Sampled at the coffee hour at a Unitarian Church in Northwest Philly. I didn't expect much, because it was just a humble cardboard box filled with unsealed, paper tea bags, and each tea bag was filled with fine dust.

But this tea impressed me.

Steeped 3 minutes. Produced a robust, full-bodied cup that was low i...

Very good tea, in the Irish style, with a bit of milk. Personally, I prefer good bagged tea, as the loose leaf is too weak for my taste. Barry's has excellent flavor and a good kick. Lifts the spirits and satisfies the palate. I can recommend a cup without hesitation.

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.

As tea in a tea bag goes, this is very good stuff. The flavor is distinctive and comforting. I think I could easily pick this one out in a blind tasting with other Irish/Brittish brands. A good tea to have on hand.

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.

Terrific decaf black tea! Good, full flavor that many decaf black teas don't have. In my area I find it in the International aisle of the supermarket, as opposed to the coffee and tea aisle. Definitely worth the extra price for a solid and delicious cup of decaf black tea!

This tea is a specialty item in our grocery store and highly over priced because they import it from Ireland (or so they claim.) It is a good, average tea but not worth the price they want.

Jun. 2nd, 2011

After having been underwhelmed by the Barry's Irish Breakfast, I tried the Barry's Gold hoping for more. By using 3 bags for a 12 oz. cup and steeping 5 to 7 minutes, this is a fairly good Irish Breakfast tea. The malty aromas (with the somewhat offsetting peachy notes), rich full body, strength without overwhelming as...
