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.
Dry Leaves Our English Breakfast, that is different from many others, has short charcoal gray leaves. We make this tea very special by blending other teas from Keemun to give body and charm.
Liquor Dark brown.
Aroma There is a toasty aroma.

An excellent companion
Average Review:

This is a fine, dark brew with an ever so slight smokiness and a crisp, dry finish. Just a touch of cream and sugar will round out the flavor and soften the edges, but too much will chase away its complexity. It has a bold yet subtle and slightly mysterious character, like a demure beauty whose understated elegance belies a ruthless cunning.

One of my favorite teas
Average Review:

This is my style of English Breakfast tea... I love it! So smooth and flavorful that I prefer drinking it straight. It's also a great anytime tea. I find it very soothing in the evenings w/ a few cookies.
