Harney & Sons Irish Breakfast (Assam) Loose Tea 4 oz
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.

The best Irish Breakfast Tea
Posted by James McCubbin on 2019 Oct 12th
I thoroughly enjoyed this blend of Irish Breakfast. It is a very strong tea but zero bitterness, which I have found with other blends in the past. It is definitely full bodied with a very unique taste. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't last very long in my cup!! I highly recommend this breakfast tea.
