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.

Liquor This tea brews a medium brown.

Does taste like Twinings/Tetley's
Average Review:

This is the first Harney & Sons breakfast blend I've tried, so I've nothing else in this line from the company to compare it to. I do agree with the other reviewers that this tastes a lot like Twining's English Breakfast. It's a nice, medium bodied tea, not too strong. I'd recommend it as an introductory breakfast blend- I'll have to try some of the other English breakfast blends this company offers.

Average Review:

I LOVE the regular English Breakfast. I'm not sure what it is about this, one, but I loathe it. There is something seriously funny about it. Not like English Breakfast at all. Get the regular English Breakfast… I couldn't live without it.

Love it so much
Average Review:

It tastes and smells so good. I usually drink my tea plain, but I tried it with low fat milk and sugar and it tastes even better. I would purchase it again.
