Yes, this tea is drunk throughout the day in Ireland; often with a a splash of milk to round out the boldness in the cup.
The liquor of the tea in the cup once steeped yields a range of colors from deep copper to amber to red (depending on your Pantone color scale!). Black tea yields a copper or red colored cup because the leaves have been heavily oxidized after picking. As a result, black tea contains very few polyphenols as they are mostly converted to theaflavins and thearubigins. Thearubigins give black tea its distinct copper liquor and bolder flavor profile.
Due to its bold and malty body Irish Breakfast is seen as a strong black tea.
