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.

I love the Stash English Breakfast Black Tea. It is so full-bodied (which I love) and is good both hot and cold (my favorite is hot and black!).

Best Tea for a coffe lover

I have had to cut down on my coffee consumption... way back. Since the problem was coffee and and caffeine, I turned to tea. Stash English Breakfast is perfect! It makes a good, strong cup, which I still need to get me going in the morning.

Like the aroma

A good tea for the first pot in the morning. Love the distinctive aroma. Quite inviting, a satisfying tea.

Excellant quality tea

I love this tea as a Sunday morning treat with a splash of cream and a touch of Truvia. Of course, it's great just plain too!
