Irish Breakfast Loose Tea Caddy (International Blend) - 100g

£7.00 sku IIBT0614-100 | Net weight: 100g

Twinings of London tea tins are world famous. We see intrepid travellers from overseas making a beeline to our London flagship store 216 Strand to stock up on this collection of teas.

Made from tin with the familiar Gold and Black logo.

About Irish Breakfast tea: Irish breakfast has in the past, simply been called 'Irish Tea' and was developed at the turn of the last century for the Irish market. Unlike its fore-runner English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast is much stronger, more intense in taste and bolder in colour. Twinings has created a wonderful blend of African broken pekoe and tasty Sri Lankan broken orange pekoe, and this tea, whilst not widely available in the UK, is extremely popular overseas.

More about the Product

INGREDIENTS

100% Black Tea

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS

We believe that how you make your tea is equally as important as the tea you use, so here's how we like to make our tea.
  • Use one rounded teaspoon per person
  • Allow freshly boiled water to cool for two to three minutes
  • Pour on and brew for 3 to 4 minutes
  • Add a touch of milk or a slice of lemon.
And, for freshness every time, keep your tea somewhere cool, dark, dry and airtight!

About Black Tea

Black tea, just like green tea, comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant.

After plucking, the leaves are laid on drying trays & withered to remove some moisture and to make them more pliable.

The leaves are then rolled and may be cut

"Broken" leaves are laid out & a heady mixture of warm air, aromatic juices, bacteria & enzymes leads to oxidation (a natural reaction that affects strength & colour)

Oxidation is stopped by firing the leaves with hot air until they are the right (brown) colour depending on the region as the leaves dry they turn black.
