Breakfast teas are generally strong, full-bodied and rich in flavour. In our collection, you can find a variety of high-quality loose leaf breakfast tea blends. Traditional English Breakfast Tea is a popular morning drink, enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. Breakfast tea blends are commonly enjoyed with milk and sugar or a slice of lemon.
Breakfast blends consist of teas from different tea regions such as Ceylon (Sri Lanka), the Assam region of India, or the Yunnan region in China. In recent years, Kenya has become a major supplier of teas used by popular teabag-brands, whose products are widely available on supermarket shelves. Our breakfast tea selection includes blended and single-origin loose leaf teas. We offer premium versions of classic loose leaf blends such as ‘English Breakfast Tea’ and ‘Irish Breakfast Tea’, as well as rarer single origin teas such as ‘Assam Mangalam’ and ‘Assam Manjushree’, which are superb breakfast teas.
Our breakfast teas are made using the traditional orthodox tea making technique. This method involves gently rolling the leaf, causing the enzymes and other chemical components to mix and develop a more delicate and smooth flavour.
Drinking black loose leaf teas with breakfast, is a longstanding British tradition. It is believed that the name ‘English Breakfast’, stems from colonial America and the story of an English immigrant, Richard Davies. Davies is said to have sold a blend of Congou, Pekoe and Pouchong teas to customers in New York City in the 1840s. Its success led to imitations and helped to popularise the name.
To create our own loose leaf English Breakfast Tea, we have used a blend of black teas from the revered Dimbulla and Nuwara Elliya regions of Ceylon (Sri Lanka). These regions are renowned for producing delicate and smooth flavours and crisp aromas.
You can buy the loose leaf breakfast teas from our collection in taster packs, tea caddies, re-fill pouches, or as catering packs.
