Irish Breakfast Tea

A brisk, strong blend of tea from the Assam region of India, mixed with other black teas (often highland Ceylon teas), this internationally popular brew has a rich, malted flavor. The brewed tea is generally colored dark red to brown and is often served with a drop of cream and sugar, or sugar and lemon, to mellow out the intense flavor, although hardcore aficionados drink it straight. Despite the name, the tea is regularly enjoyed any time of day. It’s known in Ireland simply as tea, and sold under brand names such as Barry’s and Lyons.
