Black tea - Irish Melody : a gustatory journey to the land of the Celts

If you have already travelled to Ireland, tasting this tea will bring back memories. A typical breakfast, a beautiful day beginning, this is what Irish Melody black tea promises you.

This tea is the reference for black tea lovers in the morning because of its lightness. However, our Irish friends also drink it in the evening after a meal. Always very epicurean, they drink it with a touch of local whisky... to discover.

You can drink it plain, it is excellent. But some like it with a splash of milk and a little sugar. It's up to you to find the best way to enjoy this Irish Breakfast Melody black tea.

Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the heart of the wonderful Irish countryside while listening to local songs. You're in for a real treat with this high quality black tea.

What are the flavours of Irish Melody black tea?

This Irish black tea sings its sweet melody in your cup. It reveals sweet and robust notes, even malty due to the presence of Assam tea grown in India. An invigorating tea to start the day.

Black tea - Irish Melody: from the plantation to the cup

Irish Melody black tea is made from Assam tea. It is grown in India, in the state of Assam, which is located in the far east of India near Bhutan and Bangladesh.

Like all black teas, it is an oxidized tea. Also, the tea leaves undergo more processing steps than green tea.

To obtain an Irish Breakfast black tea, after harvesting the leaves are:
- withered;
- rolled;
- oxidized;
- roasted;
- sorted.

Each of these stages must be scrupulously respected to obtain an exceptional tea. They reduce the moisture content of the leaves and develop their flavours for a hot drink that meets your requirements.

Food and tea: David Vanille's pairings

Black tea is naturally enjoyed with small biscuits, cakes or even chocolate cakes.

But we are not talking about just any black tea. Irish is quite typical and people who have travelled to Ireland know that. So yes, of course, it is a perfect accompaniment to a sweet snack. But I suggest you enjoy it Irish style with a savory breakfast.

So, my Irish Melody black tea pairs perfectly with a dish of Irish sausages, black pudding rings, eggs, red beans and bacon. You can also enjoy it with smoked salmon accompanied by brown bread, a traditional black cereal bread, or Guinness bread.
