English Breakfast tea. One of the original English Breakfast was made using black Keemun from the Anhui area of China. This black tea mimics that tradition. Note a slight hue to the cup and a slightly smoky flavor, with a hint of natural sweetness. Go English style with a bit of milk and or sugar but you may find this English Breakfast a wonderful and delicious treat straight up. For some reason those British folks like to add a bit to their tea – especially when drinking a stronger black tea. This is a best selling English Breakfast loose leaf tea and you will understand why after tasting it.
The English 1st brought this tea to Europe by the East India Company. It was a favorite of the wealthy and of royalty. The Spruce Eats provides a wonderful short history of English Breakfast and other tidbits of information you may fun that expand on what I want to cover here but there are a myriad of fine English Breakfast teas from which to choose. I encourage you to try this loose leaf tea and compare.
For those who enjoy this tea I would like to recommend the Organic version of English Breakfast. Have a bit of fun and take a blind taste test to see if you can tell the difference.
