Harney & Sons Irish Breakfast tea is 100% Assam, and like most traditional Irish blends, this is a great way to begin your morning. This medium dark brown liquor tastes great plain or when consumed with milk and sugar. In contrast to other versions of Irish Breakfast tea, you could say that Harney & Sons is a little more sophisticated. The Harneys have been out of Ireland for sometime, so their Irish Breakfast is an older version. This tea recalls a time when the teas came from Assam, not Africa; and were small broken leaves, not CTC pellets. This tea is certified Kosher.
