English Breakfast is one of the jewels in the British tea crown. Bold, satisfying and deliciously smooth, it’s a brew to be treasured any time of the day.
Our Tea Masters balance malty Indian Assam with brisk Ceylon and bright Kenyan teas. They use a high proportion of second flush Assam (leaves picked at the peak of their quality) to create an invigorating brew full of rich, comforting flavours.
A good cup of tea is part of the London experience – the perfect way to refresh your senses while taking in the sights. And there’s no more quintessential tea than an English Breakfast blend. Robust enough to start your day, balanced enough to revive you in the afternoons, a cup of our English Breakfast is the ultimate British cuppa.
This box of English Breakfast tea makes a great memento or gift. Each teabag is individually foil-wrapped, so the 10 teabags deliver a fresh infusion every time. The box is illustrated with stylish photographs of some of London’s best loved landmarks, with the iconic red of the city’s buses, phone boxes and Queen's Guards highlighted. A true taste of the city, our English Breakfast is perfect for anyone who loves London.
Each and every morning, my favourite cup of tea would be English Breakfast. It’s strong, it’s coloury, it’s got a wonderful nutty flavour that I really do enjoy, and it takes the milk well.William Manning, Senior Tea Taster
In the UK Head Office we taste over 500 cups of tea every day, to search for the best quality teas available from around the world.Dominic Marriot, Tea Taster
Later on in the afternoon I might try something like a Darjeeling that has the muscatel flavour, or maybe even a high-grown Ceylon, but definitely my favourite brew, and the one that I drink the most of, is English Breakfast.William Manning , Senior Tea Taster
