Good during breakfast, second breakfast, brunch, lunch, supper, dinner. Yes, it’s a breakfast tea, but this is an ideal tea for any time you need a lift. We get why people would want to wake up to this robust blend of black teas (caffeine), but why limit English Breakfast tea to the morning only? We know you would never let the “norm” dictate what you do. You little rebel.
You know what else? English Breakfast tea with milk is a straight-up delight. There are so many ways to dress up this tea, but we’re firm believers that it’s good straight too. Do you know why it tastes so good? It has to be the blend of black teas that combine to make the bold, brisk flavorful tea that has become one of the most famous blended teas in the world.

Why is English Breakfast tea called that?
If you’re like us you’ve probably wondered why this tea is called “English” Breakfast tea… If you’re not like us, you can still read on for a mini-history lesson.
Some claim that the breakfast tea combination was developed in Edinburgh by Scottish Tea Master Robert Drysdale. When Queen Victoria visited him and tried it, she loved it so much she brought it back to England. Because of her love for it, and because of people’s love for royalty, the breakfast tea grew in popularity. It was subsequently renamed English Breakfast.
That’s one version of the story.
Another version claims that this blend originated in America, as far back as the Colonial Era. This version says that the English colonials suffered from homesickness, and dubbed the blend of black tea that was already enjoyed in Britain as “English Breakfast.” Hashtag nostalgia.
This tea has a wonderful mild flavor, must be very popular because I have a hard time finding it the grocery stores so I ordered a 6 month supply. Also received some wonderful fall samples to try, Great Service!
I love decaf English Breakfast and when I switched to tea for my morning drink, I tried the regular English Breakfast. So much smoother than the one I had had before…it’s lovely!
I love ordering and getting exactly what I love to drink. You have the best Tea!
I love all your black teas
My favorite tea
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.
