 Details: English Breakfast tea was never designed or formulated all those years ago. Rather, teas were chosen that were plentiful and not too expensive and would taste good with milk and sugar. Something an English person would enjoy at the start of a busy day. So in the early 1800s, that tea would have been black tea from China. Later on, many Brits drank the brisker teas from the British colonies of India and Ceylon. After the Second World War, when the colonies became independent, the source of English Breakfast for the British became Africa. Nowadays, the English drink plenty of tea from Kenya. Those teas have taken over from the teas from Assam. And what tea from Sri Lanka (Ceylon) has a better pedigree than Kenilworth? It is right and fitting to drink this Royal English Breakfast.
 Dry Leaves: A mixture of dark brown leaves.
 Liquor: This tea brews a medium brown.
 Aroma: A nice blend of the aroma of honey with lemon tones. There are faint clove-spice notes.
 Flavors: The mellow, dark honey flavors of the Kenilworth are complemented by the citrus and spice of the Kenya Milima. They work perfectly with milk and sugar.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied. It has a nicely fulfilling body; your mouth is full, but not too full.
 Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 212¬ļ
