English Breakfast is the foremost favourite black tea blend, found in the majority of British households and across Europe as the standard black tea. This classic tea comes in various grades and blends, many of them made up of lower quality leaves. However, our own English Breakfast Tea is made with premium 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.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 100°C for 3-5 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavour in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavour of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

fresh from origin

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.
