Irish Breakfast Tea

Irish Breakfast Tea

I found Irish Breakfast Tea to be similar to English Breakfast Tea but more acidic. It's not as acidic as Scottish Breakfast Tea, but then few things are. I bought Twinnings brand for the Irish and Scottish teas. It's a brand that I like. I found it in the supermarket.

 

If acidic black teas aren't your thing, you might like Welsh Breakfast Tea. I found it to be mild, low in acid, with hints of peat moss and camp fire smoke. I once found it in a supermarket but have only seen it online lately.

 

Below find more info on Irish Breakfast Tea from an article on Irish breakfasts in Extra Crispy. Article written by Dan Bergin-Holly. Find the original here:

----------------------------------

 

Irish Breakfast Tea (or just “tea” as I know it) is a black tea blend, primarily Assam in origin. It is served with milk, and you are allowed to add up to two spoons of sugar before people will start openly criticizing your life choices.

 

While there are many variants of tea served in the UK, in Ireland there are only two brands that are considered “acceptable” by anyone worth talking to: Barry’s and Lyons. Barry’s tea is by far the most common, particularly in the south near its hometown of Cork, and is still an Irish-owned brand. Lyons tends to make more of an appearance in Dublin where it originated, but can be found across the whole island.
