I have never had Irish Breakfast Tea, and I had never heard of Timothy's brand, however as i walked around TJMaxx and found it in their mother's day specials, I picked it up and figured i would try it. It's amazing. you can find out more about it on their website, Amazontea.com if you get a opprotunity to try it or buy it and you enjoy a nice cup of english breakfast, I would recommend Timothy's Irish Breakfast Tea. It comes in a box of 100. Bag and String and Tag style. If you are a fan of Tea of Life, Sun Leag Private Lable or Eden Grove teas, this is made by the same company, and significantly cheeper.
