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.

English breakfast tea, done right
November 7, 2014
Reviewer:  carnivorousbeast37 "-carnivorousbeast37"

I drink English breakfast tea on a regular basis, and Stash is the kind I drink most often. It's not something extraordinary, but it's satisfying and steeps well. It's a good, basic English breakfast tea.

Stash's blend is full-bodied, but not too strong, some English breakfast teas are so robust that it's uncomfortable to consume them without milk. Stash's blend is good on its own, or with a splash of milk. There is balance here, rich but smooth.

My advice is that is you are a black tea drinker, order plenty as this tea may very easily become a part of your daily routine.
