Irish Breakfast from Twinings

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

75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 11th, 2017

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...

Irish Breakfast from Octavia Tea

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

78 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
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...

Irish Breakfast from Mighty Leaf Tea

61 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 18th, 2017

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...

45 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 27th, 2017

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 ...

Irish Breakfast from Harney and Sons

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Assam, India

79 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
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...

Dec. 13th, 2016

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...

Mar. 15th, 2016

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...

60 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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...

Irish Breakfast from Adagio Teas

Style: Irish Breakfast – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 5th, 2015

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.

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 17th, 2015

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...

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.

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.

pretty bland in terms of aroma and taste (is that synonymous with Irish?), but good for a change once in a while.

Trader Joe's Original Irish Breakfast is a smooth and dark tea with a welcoming and appealing aroma. The longer the tea steeps the more bitter it becomes but at the suggested time of 3 to 5 minutes you will find a wonderful cup of tea that pleases. I typically drink this at work, two to three cups each day, as a regul...

Though they ended up with the same score, I actually liked the Irish Breakfast slightly better than the English Breakfast from Twinings. Unfortunately, to say I "enjoyed" it would still be too strong.

This tea was a bit bitter and too strong for my taste. Regarding Irish bagged teas, I guess I'm a Barry's fan. I suppose I'm in the minority.

As far as I know, this is the only blend of Assam and Darjeeling. The result is an outstanding flavor, and a wonderful tea, in the Irish style, with a bit of milk.

I like this tea - it's very strong and dark. I have a be careful when brewing it because there's a short window of time that it comes out good - for me about 3 minutes. After that it starts to get very bitter and astringent. I'm starting to notice that in general, it's hard to find decaf black teas that have a lot of f...
