A good strong tea for Breakfast time. This blend is based on a thick Assam tea with some added finesse from a lighter tea from Ceylon.
Many versions of English Breakfast Tea exist with the term was first used in 1843 by a tea blender in New York and he created his blend from various Chinese teas. Later, as tea growing spread to Assam in Northern India and Sri Lanka (Ceylon) blends were produced using these two origins.
This blend returns to the more modern tradition of the tea to be taken with breakfast and is based on a thick, malty Assam tea with a little Ceylon tea added for its light pungency. You can be sure of the quality with our Breakfast Blend.
For best results, 4 – 5 mins (but you will work out what’s best for you) really should be drunk with milk.
