Love this tea each morning. Robust enough to have with my steamed and frothed milk.

Have had Irish Breakfast tea from several brands and this is the worst. Usually, Irish Breakfast tea is smooth and sturdy, you know you are sipping a caffeinated beverage. The English Store brand is bitter, a brown color, no flavor and no caffeine kick.

Excellent! Review by va-tea
Price
Quality

A good full bodied tea without bitterness so often found in pre-packaged supermarket teas. For a long time I used milk or cream but with this and other English Tea Store teas, I do not because the tea is smooth and full of flavor. This loose Irish Breakfast Tea brews quickly so do not let it steep for 5 minutes as it is ready in 2-3, less if you like a lighter tea. Also, we use the larger (about 3" x 4") tea filters (bags) which allow plenty of water to circulate. This is a great robust morning tea and is equally satisfying in the afternoon after working in the yard.

Good strong tea Review by Noel
Price
Quality

The Irish Breakfast Tea is a CTC style tea, which means it brews very quickly. While the tea is good when steeped for a minute or two, it quickly becomes bitter during longer steep times. Keep an eye on the watch, and you'll enjoy a fine, full-bodied breakfast tea.

This is always my choice Review by jimt2099
Price
Quality

I have been drinking this English Tea Store Irish Breakfast tea for a few years now. No matter how hard I try I cannot get past it. I love this stuff.

Okay, why so intense? Well a few years ago I was looking for a tea that had a lot of body, a wake up tea you might say. After trying several teas I finally decided to give this one a try. Well that was all it took. This tea has been my daily staple since.

I guess what I like so much about this Irish breakfast is that it brews a good stout cup of tea in 7 minutes. It is not bitter, but full of flavor while being kind to the palette, ( I take mine with one sweetener and one creamer). Irish breakfast is my morning wake up. I always order this tea when my supply requires replenishment. I highly recommend this tea to everyone searching for a full bodied tea that will make you smile and carry you through the day.

A good stout robust morning tea that will get your day going Review by James
Price
Quality

I like a fairly strong tea and this fits the bill, depending on how your brew it. Irish breakfast is a stout and flavorful brew that gives you a distinct and robust taste experience. A great mornig tea, or also good for anytime, this tea renders a sense of no frills, stout downhome flavor that awakens the spirit and kickstarts the day. I like to add some sweetener and creamer to bring out the full flavor of this hearty tea. I highly recommend this to anyone that yearns for a tea with body and always leaves you wanting another cup.

Another fine tea both hot and iced.
A little bit lighter tasting than Scottish Breakfast and equally as enjoyable. Especially when brewed with a bit of Lady Londonderry for a bit of citrus flavor to top it off.

the ETS Irish breakfast tea I’ve used was ground very fine and then compressed into granuals. It still works well in a mesh tea infuser, but like other finely ground teas, you have to be careful not to steep it too long. I like the Scottish Breakfast tea the best of the breakfast teas, but the Keemum Panda Chinese black tea is by far, the best black tea at ETS. Good, but finely ground

The Irish BT is a very good tea with plenty of flavor and color. I find it to have a little "bite" when compared to Scottish BT and perhaps not quite as robust.
