NO day without it

My day does not start without Silver Tips Irish Breakfast tea (or it goes poorly). A fine robust tea which gets my brain started.

This is a long-time favorite of our customers. For those that consider English Breakfast too mild, our house blend of Irish Breakfast is perfect. You have been a loyal fan of this tea for quite a while!

Perfect to Start the Day

Full-bodied and strong, I love this breakfast tea first thing in the morning. Bold and flavorful, it's great with a splash of half and half. It also make a decent re-steep so it can be enjoyed later in the day, too!

Tea Education

Irish Breakfast is a stronger blend than English Breakfast. There is a far higher preponderance of Assam black tea in Irish Breakfast giving it more body and a malty feel. Irish Breakfast is a great candidate for milk and sugar. Some Irish Breakfast blends use broken leaf tea to give it even more substance but ours is a blend of full-leaf teas.
