From the beginning, we have committed our efforts to the creation of the best tasting, cleanest and most wholesome organic English Breakfast blend. It’s a mainstay of the tea universe, so we had to get it right. By fastidiously tasting all our favourite English Breakfast teas from around the world we determined the best balance to offer a most well-rounded blend of flavours
Our journey took us to wherever the finest organic and fair trade teas in the world are grown. The absolute best? Look in Darjeeling, Assam and Nilgiri.
With the help of our Tea Genius, Jonny, we determined that the peak English Breakfast blend is a combination of two key teas.
To achieve the multi-dimensional flavour of premium English Breakfast we start from a base of low-grown Assam tea, renowned for its robust malty flavour. The second ingredient is high-grown Nilgiri tea known for its smooth, rounded fragrant quality. Discerning drinkers will recognise its fine flavour liquors.
The combination makes for a sublime balance and you can see it as a rich blend of colour, delivering a tea that is both malty, balanced and fragrant in taste. When combined with a splash of milk, you can expect a subtle yet energising kick that will set your future standard for English Breakfast from the very first sip.
The name "English Breakfast" was invented in the 1840s New York to market Chinese Congou tea to the American public.
English Breakfast, as the name suggests, is traditionally enjoyed in the morning, but it is good at any time of the day.
Blended black Assam and Nilgiri tea, low-grown Assam comes from the north-east of India, while the high-grown Nilgiri hails from the southern region of the country.
The Assam provides the robust malty flavour synonymous with breakfast tea, while the Nilgiri soothes out the blend creating a rounded more complete flavour profile.
