English and Irish Breakfast Tea

My brother gave me a packet of English Breakfast tea and a packet of Irish Breakfast tea from Whittard of Chelsea.

Whittard English & Irish Breakfast Tea

Whittard English & Irish Breakfast Tea

This morning I tested the Irish Breakfast. Their description is spot on:

This full-bodied Assam blend is a malty tea with a deep red-gold colour. Its robust flavour makes it an ideal tea to drink at breakfast time, or as a pick-me-up throughout the day.

Tea World Cup and Indian National Drink

From The Times of India:

Tea got a new ambassador, when former President of India, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam said that the brew can be the official drink of India on Tuesday.

Even as the chief minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi declared tea as the State Drink, Kalam said that on the basis of the size of its consumers tea can be declared the national drink of India. Kalam was inaugurating the three-day World Tea Science Congress at Tocklai Experimental Station (TES), Jorhat, Assam.

Will you attend the event on March 25-27, 2012, called Tea & Coffe World Cup in Vienna, Austria? As a former purchaser who is interested in supply chain management, I like the following description of the trade show:

In short, Tea & Coffee World Cup includes the entirety of the supply chain from bean or leaf to cup. Tea & Coffee Trade Journal will ensure that roasters, tea packers, retail outlets, and others connected to the coffee and tea industries will be in Vienna for the show.
