brewing-information Description

Our English Breakfast blend tea is the perfect cup of tea to start your day! For decades, we have carefully crafted this blend using several robust teas from India and Sri Lanka. The base tea used for our English morning tea has a smaller, broken appearance, but we have found that it produces a stronger cup in comparison to other larger leaf tea blends.

When brewed, the bright and vibrant liquid invites you to take that first sip to get your day moving. Its bold, full-flavored taste makes it a favorite breakfast tea and one of our most popular offerings year after year.

You will also find our English Breakfast Blend tea in our Breakfast Tea Selection Sampler.


brewing-information  Brewing Information

Brewing Tips: Our English Breakfast tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the English Breakfast tea leaves. English Breakfast tea should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does it take for my order to ship?

    We strive to ship orders within 2-3 days of receipt. However, due to the handcrafted nature of our products, combined with inventory limitations, some orders may take longer to ship. If there is a significant delay in shipping your order, we will contact you directly with details.

    Are your teas cultivated naturally? Are they Organic?

    All our teas are sourced from tea estates, suppliers and importers that we have personally worked with for decades and many for generations! We only purchase teas that have been cultivated naturally, devoid of pesticides and growth agents.

    Teas that have the term “Organic” in the products name have gone through additional certification by the country or origin and USFDA. Even though all our products are natural, we are unable to list them as Organic unless they have gone through these steps. Sometimes, this certification can be costly and time consuming for growers. Each country has different regulations, so many sell the teas to us without this extra labeling.

    How long does tea stay fresh?

    If sealed properly and stored away from extreme hot/cold temps and moisture, tea will stay as flavorful as the day you bought it, even after 18 months.

    How long should I brew my tea?

    Tea brewing times and water temperature can vary between tea varieties. Please consult this link to find the best method for your tea!
