Tea Story

This premium version of the supremely robust and satisfying classic, Irish Breakfast Tea, is a blend of the highest quality Ceylon ‘BOPF (Broken Orange Pekoe Fannings)’ and ‘Dust1 Fannings’ grade tea. ‘BOPF’ is the classification for black-leaf teas with few added ingredients, a uniform particle size and no tips. ‘Dust1’ is the classification for a small and fine leaf tea. Our Irish Breakfast loose leaf Tea delivers a delicate balance of characterful strength and refined quality, without the bitterness that can often be associated with strong breakfast teas.

Hailing from the celebrated Nuwara Eliya region of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), which is famed for the distinctive flavour of its exquisite teas, the brisk, full taste of this bright infusion offers a perfect, strong and satisfying cup of breakfast tea.

Can be enjoyed with milk or cream per your personal preference.

Ingredients: Pure Ceylon Black Tea.

Note to customers: This tea contains a small proportion of fine tea leaves. We recommend that you use a very fine mesh filter - anything from 0.5mm or smaller - or simply re-strain your brew, to remove any bits that may have escaped.

My first try of this black tea
Tuesday, 24 December 2019  |  Clifford

I like strong black tea and this was my first try at Irish Breakfast, it has a slight after taste that I am not used to, slightly oily, I will see if it grows on me. I prefer a maltier flavour to this kind of tea.

as above as above as above. I've given each tea 5 stars as it doesn't seem to let me progress if I put in anything else.
