With an annual per-capita consumption of more than 3kg, the Irish are still the world champions when it comes to drinking tea. If you like strong tea, this is the one. Stronger than English breakfast, this balanced blend is made from the season's strongest broken teas. A deep dark infusion with a highly spicy, malty character. You can drink it at anytime of the day but it is definitely worth getting out of bed for that first cup-a-Irish Breakfast char.
The tea bags are made from soilon - a corn starch which is biodegradable.
Assam is the largest tea growing area in the world, where 2,000 gardens can produce almost 450,000 tons of tea each year. Assam tea accounts for about 55 per cent of India's total annual production. Assam is a vast and beautiful area of dense forests and open rolling plains through which the mighty Brahmaputra river runs, carrying rich fertile soil down from the mountains of Tibet to the agricultural plains. Exceptionally high rainfall (sometimes exceeding 10m in just one season) produces a very humid enviroment comparable to being inside a vast greenhouse - consequently the plants thrive, producing a tea which is very different to Darjeeling.
