Our Review
We have been the tea supplier to famous Dorchester for over 10 years. Over that time, we have learned the taste preferences of the British. We know that they like their tea strong, and indeed, this tea is.
Dry Leaves Dark leaves, cut into small uniform pieces. (Cut, tear, curl)
Liquor Dark brown
Aroma Assertive, sweet-charred aromas like with roasted sweet onions.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body The British like their teas with lots of body, so thick that a spoon stands up. Dorchester Breakfast tea almost delivers this. It is intensely brisk or astringent. Most people like to add milk.
Flavors In London, people drink this tea for its strength; the flavors are secondary, especially if milk and sugar are added. However there are subtle roasted malt notes.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Average Review:

small amount of lapsang souchong?



Strong but well-balanced
Average Review:

Sometimes I just want a really strong cup of tea and this fits the bill. I brew it with just a bit more tea, but less time, and get a strong cuppa without too much astringency or tannin or bitterness. Just a nice mellow tea flavor, albeit strong, and it looks like coffee by the time I add sugar and milk. A great coffee alternative!



Not a fan
Average Review:

I gave it a few tried, but it just tastes like "a tea". There's just one flavour that I can find, and it's pretty similar to what I can get bagged at Tim Horton's. "Flat" is a good word for it. Compared to the organic breakfast -- well, there is no comparison. I'll leave it at that.
