Tea time has often been accompanied by the likes of farmhouse recipes of tea like Earl Grey or English Breakfast, but we are taking it Irish. With not only an Irish Breakfast Tea Recipe that’s based off our Port Side Irish artisan loose leaf tea. Watch as we'll be adding one with an herbal coffee twist for a traditional Irish coffee drink.

Port Side Irish Dame
A pinch Himalayan Pink Salt
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp Beach House Teas Port Side Irish Tea
6 oz filtered water
6 1/2 oz full cream milk
Whipped cream to garnish
A pinch of cinnamon powder to garnish
Caramel drizzle

Brew the tea with filtered water as you would any other cup of tea. Let steep 4-5 minutes for a strong brew liquor.

In a small saucepan, heat the milk, along with the sugar and salt. Once boiled, pour the milk into a blender, along with the Port Side Irish tea liquor.

Blend the entire beverage, for about 20 seconds or until it is frothy and bubbly. Pour into two mugs, garnish with whipped cream, sprinkle with less than a pinch of cinnamon powder, and drizzle with caramel.

Recipe Notes: You can replace sugar with any form of sweeteners like honey or stevia. Though full cream milk is recommended, you can also use almond milk, oat milk or soy milk. For a stronger concoction, increase the brew time to 6-7 minutes.
