Ireland has long been known to have the highest per capita tea consumption in the world. So naturally, the tea makers at Bewleys, produced in Dublin, Ireland, know how to make a first-rate Irish Breakfast Tea.

To create their Irish Breakfast Tea, Bewley's blend tea leaves from different regions to create a unique taste. Bewley's Irish Breakfast is 100% tea leaves and is a blend of tea leaves from India, specifically the Assam and Darjeeling regions.

Bewley's Irish Breakfast Tea brews a rich brown color and has a creamy, malt flavor and a full-bodied taste. With a strong flavored tea like this, it is best to add a dash of milk and sweetener (sugar, honey or whatever you choose).

Bewleys Irish Breakfast Tea comes in tea bags or loose tea. The tea bags are available as individually-wrapped, so you can take some with you wherever you go, or as traditional square tea bags. On the front of the 80 tea bag box and loose tea package is an image of Blarney Castle in Cork, Ireland.

Although it says breakfast, the tea can be consumed any time of day. To make the best Bewleys Irish Breakfast, steep the tea for 3 to 5 minutes.

Actually, Irish Breakfast Teas have been created by Irish Tea makers mostly for export. Tea drinkers in Ireland typically drink Bewleys Gold or a similar tea.

Irish Breakfast is a common type of tea. A lot of tea companies make a version of this tea and almost all taste different. Essentially, teas from different regions are blended together to achieve a specific taste. Irish Breakfast Teas should always be a black tea.

Irish Breakfast, along with English Breakfast or even Scottish Breakfast, is the most familiar type of tea. All of these versions of Breakfast Tea taste different. Most notably, English Breakfast is more mellow than the others.

In tea making, cupping means to taste and evaluate tea leaves for such factors and aroma, body, briskness, color and more. This is required to discover the qualities of the tea so consistent blends can be produced. As a natural product, tea leaves from the same geographic region can taste vastly different. This steps means the tea consistently taste the same and is of a good quality.

First, Bewley's visits tea growers across India's Assam and Darjeeling regions to begin selecting the best tea leaves to use for Irish Breakfast. Bewleys examines tea leaves for appearance, taste, color, strength and briskness.

Then, Bewleys Master Tea Blender gets samples different varieties of tea. These samples are then reviewed for leaf size and quality. A thorough cupping is then conducted. Bewleys even has a dedicated cupping room so outside distractions can be eliminated. The best teas are then chosen and Bewleys purchases these from tea growers. Upon arrival at the Bewleys facility in Dublin, Ireland, the Irish Breakfast Tea can be created.

Then, the best tea leaves are purchased and shipped back to Bewley's plant in Dublin, Ireland. After arrival in Ireland, the tea leaves are tasted again to ensure they taste the same as they did before purchase at the tea estate.

Now comes the hard part. How do you blend tea from different regions to get the same taste in every cup of Bewleys Irish Breakfast Tea. Adding to the complexity is that fact that each crop of tea can vary in taste. Weather may alter the taste of it may not be possible to obtain from the same tea estates every year. But, the tea leaves have to be blended to ensure the same taste every time a cup of Bewleys Irish Breakfast is consumed.

Bewleys Master Blender has to adjust the type of tea leaves and the volume of tea leaves. Bewleys keep samples of previous blends to ensure the taste is consistent. This content was first seen on teadog.com describing Bewleys Irish Breakfast Loose Tea.

It is the best tea this side of the pond! February 24, 2018
Reviewer: Joni from Arizona  
I love using this tea to make a big container of iced tea to carry me through the morning.  The taste is rich and strong.  I do like it both hot and cold but in Arizona I mostly need it cold.  I'm glad to find a vendor from which to purchase also.
