Story

The story of Irish Breakfast Tea traces back to the 19th century when the British were cultivating tea in their colonies, particularly in India. The Irish, who were fond of strong teas, found that the robust and full-bodied blends produced in Assam and Ceylon suited their taste preferences perfectly.

Irish Breakfast Tea, unlike its milder English counterpart, is known for its bold flavor and rich, reddish hue. This blend was created to withstand the addition of milk, which was a common practice among the Irish. The popularity of Irish Breakfast Tea grew rapidly in Ireland, becoming a staple of the morning ritual for many households. It provided a hearty and comforting start to the day, especially during the chilly Irish mornings. Over time, Irish Breakfast Tea became not only a beloved beverage but also a symbol of Irish hospitality and conviviality. Whether enjoyed alone or shared among friends and family, it continues to hold a special place in Irish culture, embodying the warmth and comfort of home.
