Irish breakfast teas are made from a blend of teas, such as Assam. As it’s a black tea it has more caffeine than a green or white variety. Traditionally in Ireland we consume a high amount of dairy and that is why people often drink tea with some fresh milk. This also softens the strong and slightly bitter taste. However people also have it plain or with some sugar. Ireland is in the top five of tea consumers per capital in the world and a boiling kettle is a constant background hum in an Irish home. This beautifully designed tin of Irish breakfast tea bags is a great way of enjoying a traditional Irish treat. It has an Irish Weave design depicting Celtic symbols.
