English Breakfast is one of the jewels in the British tea crown. Bold, satisfying and deliciously smooth, it's the perfect cuppa – any time of the day.
To make this blend, our Tea Masters balance malty Indian Assam with brisk Ceylon and bright Kenyan teas. We 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. Wherever your day takes you, a cup of our English Breakfast Tea helps get you there.
A good cup of tea is part of the London experience. So if you want to treat someone to a true taste of the capital, our trio of London-inspired caddies is the perfect souvenir. This collection takes you on a virtual tour of the city including Big Ben, a red telephone box and illustrations of other famous landmarks. Each metal caddy is packed with 20 of our classic English Breakfast teabags - each one tagged to make brewing in cup or pot easier. The caddies can also be used as money boxes, so when all the tea’s been enjoyed, their owner can save up for their own trip to 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
