organic black tea (sample)

The Irish drink more tea per capita than almost anyone in the world. In celebration of this tea-drinking tradition, Irish Breakfast is a hearty blend of traditional, Chinese black teas with a robust, malty character with dry hints of grape skin and molasses, and a brisk, slightly smoky finish that satisfies well beyond breakfast. Add a splash of milk and sugar to this classic, full-bodied cup for a real taste of Ireland.

If you are looking our strongest, traditional, straight-forward, brisk black tea to start your day off on the right foot, this tea is for you!

  1. Best strong black tea!

    I love a very strong black tea, with a lot of flavor. This one definitely offers the kick and complexity I’m looking for. The smoky notes come through, and the description above is spot on. It’s hearty, yet luxurious to me. My Irish friend, who likes her tea to “walk across the table”, approves as well! Thanks, Octavia Teas!! Your teas are truly the best quality.

  2. Exactly what I expected

    No pretending for this black tea, what you see is what you get. A good strong cup of black that goes well plain or with a bit of milk and sugar. Quality tea, very happy with this tin.
