English Breakfast tea is a classic cup of tea. This full-bodied black loose leaf tea blend is made with Keemun black tea. Traditionally in the UK, English breakfast tea is enjoyed in the morning, but if you need a kick of caffeine in the afternoon, no reason not to enjoy a cup then as well.
What does English Breakfast tea taste like?
Keemun tea is prized for its rich flavor with a slightly smoky palate. The astringency of this English tea is well-balanced with a honeyed aroma.
Tea drinkers enjoy English Breakfast black tea straight up or with a bit of milk like the English.
What is the difference between Irish and English Breakfast tea?
English and Irish Breakfast tea are two of the most popular teas worldwide. Known for their bold, robust flavors, tannin levels, and high caffeine content, breakfast teas are the perfect cup to go with a traditional hearty English breakfast.
Irish and English Breakfast teas have similar origins, but the blend of black teas varies between the two. Irish Breakfast is typically made with a blend of Ceylon and Assam black tea which gives it a more intensely robust flavor than English Breakfast tea.
Assam tea provides a reddish hue with a malty flavor. The Irish prefer to blend their tea strongly and enjoy it with the addition of milk. Even though it is labeled a breakfast tea, Irish tea lovers enjoy it all day long!
Our English Breakfast is made from Keemun black tea leaves. Keemun was first produced in the late 19th century and quickly became popular in the West. The flavor is not as bold as you find with Irish tea, but it is still quite robust and often enjoyed with milk and sugar.
