Our Review
English Breakfast Tea was never designed or formulated all those years ago. Rather, teas were chosen that were plentiful and not too expensive, and that 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 a black tea from China, and this is where we take our inspiration. 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. We do have some blends that are inspired by these regions, however this English Breakfast, like the original, is Chinese black tea.

Liquor Dark brown.

Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body Medium-full bodied.

Gentle!

I need tea to get through my day, but sadly, I have a sensitive stomach and often get heartburn from it. I can't explain it, but somehow the Harney and Sons tea is *much* easier on my stomach than the myriad of other black teas I've tried. I'm stocking up!!

Average Review:

Had this tea at the Las Vegas Paris and had to order some for home. I'm an tea drinker and this is truly the best English Breakfast or black tea. I've been drinking the Stassen Ceylon tea and it's always a hit or miss depending on the batch. Thank you Harney and Sons...thanks for keeping the family tradition!
