The name English Breakfast is typically used for a hearty morning cup of dark black teas that were suitable for brewing with milk. English tea lovers have given this flavor profile tremendous popularity in the last 40-50 years. Typically, the blend has included a mixture of Chinese, Sri Lankan, and Indian black teas. Most tea merchants offer their version of this blend. Ours includes Chinese and Indian black tea and offers a hearty morning brew.
