Irish Breakfast Tea combines Assam and Ceylon teas for a bold, rich flavor, great for breakfast, or any time of day. Irish Breakfast Tea is often described as a bit stronger than English Breakfast Tea, so if you’re looking for that extra “kick,” Irish Breakfast Tea may be the choice for you. Though named a ‘breakfast’ tea, the tea can be enjoyed at any time of the day. It is commonly served with milk, but may also be enjoyed plain, or with sugar or lemon.

Health Benefits Of Irish Breakfast Tea
It is a Natural Energy Drink
Irish breakfast tea contains more caffeine than ordinary tea, but unlike coffee, the tea is more slowly released, which provides a more steady stream of energy throughout the day. It is often taken in the morning, to maximize its energizing qualities.
Irish Breakfast Tea Can Contribute to Healthy Weight Loss
Irish breakfast tea contains flavonoids that help to boost metabolism. It also contains vitamin B1, which aids in the metabolism of carbohydrates. This causes an increased rate of fat and glycogen breakdown, leading to weight loss.

Quercetin and catechins found in this tea have been found to contribute to the health of the heart and blood vessels. Quercetin is an anti-inflammatory agent which prevents injury to the heart. Quercetin and catechin reduce the blood level of bad cholesterols, thereby reducing the risk of heart diseases.
It Enhances Your Immune System
Irish breakfast tea has been found to boost the immune system. This contributes to preventing infections and illnesses caused by harmful microorganisms. This ability of black tea to improve immune function is thought to be due to antioxidants present in it.
