Ingredients: Luxury black tea

Hot tea brewing method:  Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help capture the malty character of this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’

It may surprise you to learn that the people of Ireland drink more tea per capita than any other population on Earth.  It’s true. In fact your average Irish citizen drinks about 6 cups per day. What’s more, the cups they drink are so strong that you could almost stand a spoon upright in them.  Indeed, the Irish prefer what some might call a sturdy cup of tea.

Irish Breakfast tea is a full-bodied, brisk, malty brew. It is a blend of several black teas: most often Assam teas and, less often, other types of black tea. At one time there must have been a decided preference for Assam teas in Ireland but, according to James Norwood Pratt’s New Tea Lover’s Treasury, no one seems to know why.
