Irish Breakfast from Fortnum & Mason

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 12th, 2020

Having never had Irish Breakfast tea before I was a bit taken aback when I opened the container to not find tea leaves, but little pellets like the low cost tea my brother buys! Having imported it all the way here I was really disappointed until I brewed some and discovered it makes the best milk tea ever.

C.T.C. Irish Breakfast Blend from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Assam, India

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 30th, 2019

A blend of Assam teas that turns out to be smooth and flavorful, and offered at an excellent price by Upton. It has been one of their top sellers, for a long time, and it is not hard to see why. This does not have the rough edges or iron notes that some breakfast teas have. It is earthy, nutty, and not a challenge t...

Oct. 17th, 2019

I'm on a quest to try all the Irish teas, and Lyon's was on the list. I hear there is a rivalry of sorts between Lyon's and Barry's and I can see why. Both are quite good and I would be happy to drink either.

Lyon's is similar to Barry's Gold blend, and I found it to be a tad smoother, and Barry's to be a little bri...

Barry's Irish Breakfast from Barry's Tea

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...

Nice mild brew that reminds me of the breakfast tea on the train between Edinburgh and London

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.

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...

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.

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 ...

Mar. 13th, 2017

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...

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.

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...

This is one of my favorite teas by Twinings, although it is not my favorite Irish breakfast blend. Its worst problem is that it tends to be overpriced.
