Add a splash of milk to Irish Cream black tea to fully experience the sweet creaminess of this blend.? The Ceylon Orange Pekoe base in this blend has all of the classic ‘Ceylon’ tea character (i.e. a floral bouquet and flavor notes, mild astringency, bright coppery color) that compliment the sweet flavor of Irish Cream to create a superb breakfast treat.
This blend contains a moderate amount of caffeine.
Irish Cream Liqueur dates to the 6th century. Irish Monks traveled to the Middle East and learned the art of distilling, intending to make perfume. Before long, they realized the process also worked for whiskey, or “Use Beatha” (Gaelic for “Water of Life”). The monks, who were also famed dairymen, found that blending their whiskey with fresh cream produced a delightful concoction we all know as Irish Cream. As we all know now in the 21st century, Irish Cream is a delicious drink on its own or as an addition to many great recipes. While this blend doesn’t have any whisky, it captures the essence of a good Irish cream liqueur, and is a delight to the senses.

Some teas are recommended for brewing with boiling water, while others are brewed at lower temperatures. Even when brewing a tea at a lower temperature, it is recommended that you first boil the water (to kill bacteria etc.) and then allow the water to cool to the correct temperature (ice cubes speed up the process). While you can certainly brew any tea with boiling water, it will change the flavor of the tea.
