Product Details

Our English Breakfast Tea combines top-quality black teas from premier tea gardens. We blend bright Ceylon tea from Sri Lanka, malty Assam and smooth Nilgiri from India, and full-bodied Keemun from China. The result is a very distinctive, rich tea. It takes milk and sugar very well. This stimulating tea is the perfect morning wake-up drink.

There are many differing stories regarding the origin of English Breakfast Tea. One is that the prototype for English Breakfast was developed in Edinburgh over a hundred years ago by the Scottish Tea Master Drysdale. It was marketed simply as "Breakfast Tea" and become popular in England due to the craze Queen Victoria created for all things Scottish. Tea shops in London, however, changed the name and sold it as "English Breakfast Tea".

Another account claims that the blend now known as English Breakfast originated not in England but in America, as far back as Colonial times. Colonials, perhaps suffering from homesickness, dubbed the blend of black tea customarily enjoyed in Britain "English Breakfast" out of nostalgia.

Whatever the case, English Breakfast has made its mark in tea history and, along with Irish Breakfast, is one of the most famous blended teas.

Note: The 1000 ct tea bags are packaged loose in a box.

Great to wake up to

Reviewer:  Ginabear "The Tea Loving Addict"

This is a nice strong tea to wake up to, in the morning. Or a nice strong tea for a mid afternoon pick me up. I love a strong black tea, and this more than does the job. Will buy more in the future.

Warm taste to ease Very Very cold days

Reviewer:  John M

I have never been a real fan of tea but I needed to wean my self off coffee. The first time I tried it was in Antarctica. I normally drink green or black tea but never really found a taste suited to my palate. This tea tasted fantastic. I tried other tea that Stash makes but none came close to this tea. Many morning it saved my day until they ran out. I'm not ashamed of hording a box or two because I just simply love this Tea. When I got back to California I just had to have have it and looked on the back of the tea bag for their websites. Gonna have my cousin review of the tea. It certainly makes a wonderful house warming gift even to those who are non tea drinkers.

Best English Breakfast Tea (Bag review)

Sorry, I am not British but I have tried many teas. I have been picking this up at a local grocery for some time and have not found anything better. This is the smoothest tea around and it works well for breakfast or anytime really. I just ordered the loose leaf and I will review that after it arrives.

Black English Tea

My husband has to be on the road a lot and travel many miles. A few months ago I started brewing him the English Breakfast Black Tea and he just loves it! I brew 2 tea bags with 32oz. of water and let it steep in the fridge all night. Nice and cold for the next day. Then pour it in a 32 oz. bottle the next morning. He calls it "liquid adrenaline"! He has even told a couple of his cronies about it! Thank you Stash for making such a great tea...on really long trips he has said it has literally saved his life!

A very simple tea. Smooth and rich and full of flavor. A spoon of honey and a splash of milk every morning! Even my friends who do not drink tea very much enjoy this tea.

Plain black tea

If you like a plain black tea, this is the tea for you! There isn't too many extra flavors to this tea and is good when you just want something simple to drink.

I only drink Stash English Breakfast tea...I enjoy it anytime of the day. I can brew it lightly or strong and it is delicious either way. I especially enjoy a tasty cup in the morning with what ever I am eating. I carry a few packets in my bag at all times and if I stop somewhere that does not carry Stash English Breakfast I order hot water and use my own tea bag.

GREAT FLAVOR

This is a fantastic full bodied tea. I enjoy it hot or cold. Because it is a full flavor tea yet smooth it is excellent for iced tea. You get what you pay for. Inexpensive store brands are full of tiny tea particles - you will see them settle in the bottom of your cup. Stash uses larger pieces of tea leaves so no residue. Worth every penny - LOVE IT.

I've enjoyed tea most of my live but Stash Tea is well above all the other teas I have tired. My husband who would rarely drink tea but when he tried the English Breakfast tea he dricks almost as much tea as I do. We enjoy it any time of day. We both have recommend it to our friends and coworkers.
