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 whiskey... 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 taste for this Irish Breakfast Melody black tea.

What are the flavors 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 of 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 steps must be scrupulously respected to obtain an exceptional tea. They reduce the humidity of the leaves and develop their flavors for a hot drink that meets your requirements.

Food and tea: David Vanille's pairings

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

But we are not talking about just any black tea. Irish is quite typical and people who have traveled to Ireland know it. So yes, of course, it goes well with 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.

Alors là, je n’ai pas compris les nombreux commentaires élogieux. Fade, odeur et goût étranges. Je n’ai en rien retrouvé le goût des différents thés que je connais. J’ai tenté d’augmenter les doses : il devient amer, mais tjs pas de parfum ni de goût. Je me demande bien de quoi est composé ce thé… Plus qu’une deception, un certain mécontentement
