English Breakfast Black Tea



  • Product Description

      Our English Breakfast Tea combines top-quality black teas from premier tea gardens. 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.

    My favorite tea

    A Nice Cuppa

    Stash English Breakfast is rich and hearty, not bitter. Stands up to milk, but is delicious without it, too. It has been my everyday tea for decades.

    Issues but Resolved!

    I ordered several teas as a gift and had them shipped directly to the giftee. When she received them, I saw that she had received the incorrect order, so I called Stash right away. I got a call back within 20 minutes and they shipped out the correct products the next day. I was so relieved that the process was so easy and quick and my giftee was pleased with the teas! I will definitely ship here again!
