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 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. 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.

A stout combination of Kenilworth Ceylon and Kenyan Milima black teas makes a smooth, full-bodied brew. Royal English Breakfast is delicious when complemented with milk and sugar. Our Royal English Breakfast tea is Kosher and contains caffeine.

Truly excellent tea
Average Review:

I happened on this tea just this past Tuesday quite by accident, and I must say, it is absolutely delightful. It can be as robust as PG Tips, but more approachable in the nutty pecan nuance that is underlying. The REB has become my favourite tea to-date.
