The key to our signature English Breakfast Tea is the speciality tea leaves. It features fine-plucked high grown smallholder tea from the best planting districts around Mt Kenya, high grown tea from the the Gisovu Tea Estate in Rwanda, and premium second flush Assam leaves from the Hunwal Tea Estate in India.
The result is a rich, full-bodied tea with a clean, brisk taste and golden colour. Great with a dash of milk and a perfect way to start your day.
Brewing instructions: 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag. 3 mins at 90-95ºC without milk, 3-5mins at 95-100ºC with milk. Just turn your kettle off before boiling if you don't have a temperature controlled kettle.
Good to know fun fact: The first English breakfast blend actually comes from America! In 1843, Richard Davies, an English apothecary from Hull who had founded a small tea company in New York, made a new mix of tea that he called “English Breakfast”, and the people loved it!
Food pairing: Extremely versatile and perfect with breakfast, whether its English or Continental, cakes or chocolate.
Ingredients: Black Tea. Contains Caffeine.
