River Shannon Breakfast Blend from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 9th, 2019

This is called an Irish breakfast, but for my tastebuds it seemed closer to an English breakfast or even a mainstream prebagged tea. It is pretty versatile and mellow. It goes best with milk but can take lemon or be used for masala also. Good.

Irish Breakfast from Adagio Teas

Aug. 19th, 2018

I haven’t tried a lot of Irish breakfast teas, but I like this one. It has a very smooth quality. It’s caffeine isn’t actually too intense, and it doesn’t turn bitter easily the way some black teas can. This is a solid breakfast tea, I think. :-)

One of my favorite Twinings tea's! They really make some good stuff!! I've reviewed a lot of their tea's!!! So, let's get down to business: This is a good tea. Very Irish-esque, very breakfast-esque - in my opinion!! I love this tea with my whole heart. It's good with milk - maybe good with sweetener, though I'd only r...

Irish Breakfast from Adagio Teas

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

Feb. 7th, 2018

Adagio's Irish Breakfast is a well-priced aromatic blend that goes best with a bit of milk. I disagree with the company's "malty" descriptor. The dry leaf has a twangy jammy aroma that is very pleasant. An overall solid daily tea.

This tea has a very nice blend of maltiness and citrus at an extremely good value!

Been drinking this for 20-something years. Even back in my coffee drinking days, this is what was thrown in the food sack when we'd go out backpacking and climbing. Brewed with mountain stream water over a butane cooker on a cold mountain morning, this tea did the trick. It's strong with a good flavor. One of it's mai...

This is truly a seamless blend, as Adagio calls it, of their Ceylon Sonata and Assam Melody teas. It stands up well to milk and sugar, but doesn't *need* it as some Irish Breakfast teas do.

This tea is rather robust. It's not bitter per say, but definetly can use some milk or cream to top it all off. With out milk, this tea is rather rough and strong. Overall though, this tea is very well crafted and goes well with a blanket on a cold rainy day. Being rather caffeinated, I usually have this tea on days wh...

Jun. 3rd, 2017

An okay Irish Breakfast but overpriced, on the weak side, and I think not quite at the level of Octavia's other teas. Served in Velvet Sky Cafe in Jenkintown, I love this place and miss it so much!

The leaf is not super aromatic, but the brewed cup smells pleasant and strong. Richly malty aroma, with some earthy n...

This was a free sample from Mighty Leaf; thanks very much! So far this is the most disappointing tea I've tried from the batch so I wanted to get my review out of the way and move on to the others. I thought this was too thin for an Irish Breakfast, oddly muted; it tasted like something was missing, both in terms of...

Dry, this tea has very little aroma. After adding water, the initial aroma is of oak leaves. It smells nice without being particularly complex.

The tea is very astringent and moderately bitter. It's less malty than I would like, so the tea tastes unbalanced. The maltiness mostly appears in the finish, which lingers ...

One of the best Irish Breakfast blends I've tried.

The dry leaf is richly aromatic, smelling sweet, initially surprisingly fruit and then very malty.

Produces a rich, dark cup that is exactly what I'd expect from this type of tea. Strong but balanced. I found this had a slightly more fresh aroma and cooling qua...

I haven't tried many Irish style (Afternoon or Breakfast) teas, so my opinions thereon may not be worth the electrons wasted to paint these letters across your screen. Regardless, I haven't had a bad one yet. Murchie's various black-tea offerings have proven to be right up in the top echelon of any black teas I've ha...

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...

Feb. 11th, 2016

This is a moderately tasty, smooth, full tea--especially for a store brand; but then again, Trader Joe's has surprised me in a pleasant way with most of their selections. It's one of the few black teas I've tried where the taste is a lot fuller than the aroma.

Not quite a match for a real Irish tea such as Connem...

Rather mild. Fruity smell. Tastes woody, earthy, maybe a bit salty. Moderately astringent. I found it energizing.

I've tried the two Adagio teas that this is apparently a blend of, but this tastes totally different from either.

This is a STRONG black tea - that stands up well to sweetener and/or milk (I never put milk nor cream in tea but if you do this is a good one). Brews up DARK in seconds. You can easily get 2-3 infusions from a bag. May no longer be available?

Not a holy grail - but a solid, caffeinated "Breakfast-style" tea that ...

A full flavor breakfast tea to wake you up in the morning. Best flavor if steeped long enough, the black tea flavor really shines through but much stronger then English Breakfast. Even when added to milk the taste dosent suffer.

A classic, yet exemplary Irish Breakfast tea: true to the style, but also top-quality. My favorite Irish Breakfast tea yet.

Dry leaf is dark and smell pleasant, fruity (like dried fruit), malty, and slightly spicy.

The brewed cup is strong and smells surprisingly much of wintergreen, which I love. There are als...

Can't say I know this tea all that well, but I have good memories of it each time I drink it. It's not a great tea, but it is a best option at many cafés and kioskes in Paris.

Served with whole milk it can be quite pleasant. It's a smooth tea wich has a suprisingly low bitterness. To my memory it is slightly astrin...

I should note off the bat that I actually brewed this from a K-cup. I'm not sure that would have any effect on the end product beyond decreasing the steeping time, though--and since I steep my teabags until I'm done with the tea, I assume this experience was closer to that of the average person than my own standard exp...

Actually one of Twining's better blends. A bit bolder than their English breakfast tea, with more pronounced malty flavor. A nice mix of Ceylon and Assam teas. Stands up to sugar and cream if you go that way, and just fine on it's own. Biggest disappointment is the lack of aroma. Makes a pretty decent cup of tea.

Traditional unblended tea with deep color and bold flavor. 100% Ceylon. Equally nice as a warm cup to start the day, or iced for a refreshing glass throughout the day. Aroma is very subtle and the flavor not terribly complex. Just a good all around Ceylon tea.
