The Quintessential British Morning: English Breakfast Tea Blend


English Breakfast Tea is the epitome of British tea culture, designed to kickstart your day with its invigorating qualities. This blend of black tea leaves creates a familiar and refreshing brew that is perfect for early mornings. With a variety of leaf sizes that hold together well as a dry leaf but deliver their differing qualities in the cup, this tea is a masterful blend of strength, colour, and full-bodied flavour.

The Blend

This tea is a harmonious fusion of small Assam leaves and small Ceylon leaves. The Assam contributes a strong, malty taste, while the Ceylon adds colour and a full-bodied flavour. The result is a well-rounded, robust tea that is both comforting and invigorating—perfect for waking you up and getting you ready for the day ahead.

Leaf Quality

The quality of the leaves in this blend is exceptional. The small Assam leaves are known for their strength and malty flavour, while the small Ceylon leaves add a touch of brightness and full-bodied flavour. Together, they create a blend that is visually appealing as a dry leaf and delivers a complex, satisfying brew.

Liquor Characteristics

Upon brewing, the liquor turns a rich, inviting hue, exuding a comforting aroma that combines the malty notes of Assam with the brightness of Ceylon. The flavour is well-rounded, robust, and full-bodied, making it the ideal choice for those who appreciate a hearty cuppa.

Brewing Instructions

  1. Boil freshly drawn water to 100°C.
  2. Add one teaspoon of the English Breakfast Tea blend to a teapot or infuser.
  3. Pour the boiling water over the tea leaves.
  4. Allow the tea to steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on your taste preference.
  5. Strain the tea into a cup and enjoy it hot. While English Breakfast is usually taken with milk, it also works well on its own.

Perfect Pairings

English Breakfast Tea pairs exceptionally well with a traditional full English breakfast, enhancing the flavours of the meal while aiding in digestion. Its robust character also makes it a suitable companion for pastries, scones, and other British treats, offering a balanced palate experience.

Health Benefits

In addition to its delightful taste, English Breakfast Tea offers a range of health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, which can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases. The tea also contains caffeine, making it an effective choice for stimulating the metabolism and providing a morning boost.


English Breakfast Tea is more than just a morning beverage; it's an integral part of British culture and a true celebration of the art of tea blending. From its carefully selected leaves to its aromatic liquor and complex flavour profile, this tea is designed to offer both comfort and invigoration. So, the next time you're looking for the perfect way to start your day, consider a cup of English Breakfast Tea. Cheers!
