A traditional black tea blend, English Breakfast has a good balance amongst strength, aroma and flavour.
Historically English Breakfast consists of some Indian tea for strength, Chinese or African tea for colour and Ceylon tea for fragrance.
These days most English Breakfast is a mix of various kinds of black tea usually from one country. The more cut up the leaves the stronger and instant the infusion but the less fragrant and flavoursome due to the processes to make the leaves small.
Our English Breakfast is FBOP grade – it has a good balance between strength and flavour.
