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.

There is no substitute.

I first discovered English Breakfast Stash tea in a small health food store 32 years ago in Kirkwood, Missouri. I have been drinking it ever since. I always look forward to that first sip in the morning as I have breakfast and plan my day. This tea has a rich somewhat smoky flavor that is a perfect compliment with my oatmeal. There is no substitute.

Rich Satisfying Flavor

I like to start the morning with a cup of black tea and this English Breakfast Black Tea is one of my favorites. Rich flavor and aroma, very satisfying. I also like the Christmas Morning Black Tea a lot and alternate these two with other black teas.

Stash English Breakfast is my go-to tea for breakfast. Nothing else comes close. I even travel with it when I visit friends so I can start my morning right. When I don't feel well, it helps me to feel better. It enhances any occasion.
