Fun Facts or Useless Information…You Decide:
Of all the traditional breakfast blends, Irish Breakfast tea happens to be the newest creation. Until WWII, Ireland received most of its tea from England, however, during WWII Ireland took a neutral stand and refused to allow Britain to use its western ports. Thus, England stopped sending tea to Ireland. With the help of newly adopted post-WWII laws, Ireland began importing its own tea and tea masters set to work in blending their own, unique breakfast blend.

I have had this tea in the past and find it very nice and has a bit of a kick for the fist cup in the morning. The reason why I keep buying it is because I love it. I have been drinking loose leaf tea for over 50 years so I know what I am writing about.
