Full bodied, robust, rich and perfect with a dash of milk and sugar is the perfect and traditional requirement for an English Breakfast tea. Often a secret blend of Kenyan, Indian and Sri Lankan teas, it became part of the very fabric of British and Irish life.
It was too good to keep a secret and it’s now drunk all over the world, sometimes with milk, often without particularly in Europe. Ironically, it is said that it was an American tea merchant who first coined the phrase “English” Breakfast.
We have a number of teas of a breakfast style, including our famous Royal Breakfast – named in honour of the time when East India officers presented two pounds of black tea to King Charles II.
