Description

An exceptional medium-bodied blend of Organic loose leaf black teas from India and Sri Lanka

Accounts of its origins vary. Drinking a blend of black teas for breakfast is indeed a longstanding British custom. The practice of referring to such a blend as “English breakfast tea” appears to have originated not in England but America, as far back as Colonial times. An additional account (referencing a period-era “Journal of Commerce” article) dates the blend to 1843 and a tea merchant named Richard Davies in New York City. Davies, an English immigrant, started with a base of Congou and added a bit of Pekoe and Pouchong. It sold for 50 cents a pound, and its success led to imitators, helping to popularize the name

  1. Elizabeth

    The organic English Breakfast Tea has a very smooth and full taste. A second steep produces an equally rich brew. An excellent tea.

  2. Amy

    The organic English Breakfast tea is the perfect tea to start your day. It is an excellent tea with a smooth taste and a clean finish.

    For the summer months I was looking for a tea that was great for iced tea to help replace my Starbucks habit and I found it! I love the fact that it tastes great (and I’d say better than a lot of the tea I’ve drank before), that it’s organic and very inexpensive compared to most loose leaf tea places! Definitely will be coming back for more!

    Some English breakfast teas have a weird aftertaste this one does not. It is perfectly flavored. Just what I want in my morning tea
