Commercial Description

...combines hearty black teas from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Assam (India) to get your morning off to a bright start...It seamlessly blends the citrusy notes of a high-grown Ceylon with the malty underscore of a pungent Assam. Spicy and jammy aroma on the leaf, malty and deep flavor with a brisk and 'buzzy' mouthfeel. Rounded sweetness in the finish...

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. :-)

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!

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.

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 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 the beautiful caramel colored infusion that is brisk and slightly malty.

This is a great tea. Great value. Strong but not too strong. Holds up well to sugar and milk. Good for the price.

This is a hearty great-tasting everyday tea. The aroma does not have the bouquet of more expensive teas, but the flavor is robust and delightful. If you're looking for a staple gourmet tea that you can afford to drink every morning, look no further.
