Details: 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.
