English Breakfast is the foremost favourite black tea blend, found in the majority of British households and across Europe as the standard black tea. However, this classic blend comes in many varieties, our own English Breakfast Tea is made with Keemun tea from the Anhui province in China, celebrated for its rich and slightly smokey flavour with a honey aroma – perfectly ‘on point’ with astringency. English Breakfast tea can be enjoyed plain or with a drop of milk.

The English required a tea strong enough to wash down their beloved Fry-up, a typical morning fare of fried bacon, sausage, mushroom, eggs and tomato. The rich but refreshing black teas of Keemun were found to be an ideal beverage for all this cholesterol. English Breakfast was also instrumental in the Monty Python spam sketch (waitress: 'Well, there's egg and bacon; egg, sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg, bacon and spam...')... which thereafter gave annoying and unsolicited emails their nickname.
