Irish Breakfast

Irish Breakfast

Description

If you enjoy your English Breakfast tea with a little more punch and vigour then Irish Breakfast Tea is the choice for you. The tea liquor this tea produces offers a more bold, rich and full bodied flavour. With a finish that reminds you of caramel and brown sugar.

Story

The Enigma of all teas. This tea was named after a British Prime Minister.  

Processing Method

This blend is created to give a richer flavour than your typical English Breakfast. As a result, the raw leaf selection is chosen from a slightly older leaf that can withstand the higher amounts of oxidization that the tea leaf must undergo. Similar to the Ceylon Breakfast, the teas are picked then withered for a lot longer than other types of black tea to allow the moisture content to be naturally expelled. The leaves are then exposed to a rolling process to bring the “tea Juices” to a flavour standard. The final process is a stop fermentation process that prevents the leaf from further oxidizing.
