Irish Breakfast - Organic

New Mexico Tea Company
  • Spoon 1 tsp Per Cup
  • Kettle 212°F
  • Timer 4-5 Min

Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 212°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 4-5 minutes.

Any of these variables can be changed to suit your particular palate, so experiment! Many teas can be steeped multiple times (especially green, white, and oolong). When steeping a tea multiple times increase the length of steep time slightly with each successive infusion.

Iced Tea Brewing Instructions:

1) Hot water method: For 1 gallon of iced tea, bring half a gallon of filtered water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat, and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz of tea), let steep for 4-5 minutes. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. If you want to serve immediately, you can pour the concentrate over ice to cool and dilute, then pour over ice again.

2) Sun tea: use a glass container and add 1 tsp of loose tea of each cup of water directly into the jug. Then set in the sun for a few hours, tasting occasionally to get the desired strength.

3) Cold brew: The slow cold-water-steeping method extracts natural sweetness and flavor from the tea leaf. It lessens the bitterness and tangy-ness produced by tannic acid so your tea tastes smooth and mild. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

This orange pekoe Irish Breakfast is made from a blend of Indian and Chinese teas. Unlike many lesser Irish Breakfasts our blend has whole leaves and includes golden tips. Sweet aroma with a brisk aftertaste, this tea really shines with milk and sugar.

I'm a coffee drinker at heart and always looking for something else to replace my morning pick me up that I still enjoy. This hits the spot right on. Well it won't replace my daily dose of the Joe, it is a great alternative! Bold flavor, smooth and no bitter after taste, I use cream and honey. Simple one of my favorite teas and getting from NMTC is a pleasure, They ship fast and comes in vacuum sealed bags right to my door, very happy!

The Irish Breakfast tea is a great way to start your day, or keep it going if you find yourself needing a little extra energy after lunch. It has a deep, full, dark flavor. I add a tiny drizzle of milk and about 1/2 teaspoon of sugar to my cup, and then I'm ready to go! It's a great alternative to coffee; it's cheaper and it tastes better.

Organic Irish Breakfast Tea is so good that I have it every morning and don't feel that I have started my day if I skip it. It is a beautiful red color and a very robust tea. It must have a fairly high caffeine level as I feel energized after drinking it. If you haven't tried it yet put it near the top of your list!!

This Irish Breakfast is everything I was hoping for. Rich flavor and delightful bouquet. I enjoy it with or without a bit of honey and milk. Perfect morning pick-me-up!
