About This Blend

When tea replaced ale as the favoured beverage at the breakfast table, it was an unblended China Keemun that was drunk. Blended true to the origin of 'English Breakfast', our connoisseur grade English Breakfast tea is predominantly Keemun, with its biscuity palate, blended with just a hint of Ceylon to sweeten and round out the cup. When you are looking for "a classic cup", English Breakfast lends itself to be drunk on its own, or with a splash of milk. As a black tea, it pairs beautifully with rich desserts such as cheesecake or chocolate cake, as well as an assortment of cheeses.

Your FAQs, Answered
For English Breakfast

Like all tea, English Breakfast can be drunk whenever one sees fit. That being said, due to the high caffeine content associated with this tea type we recommend consuming it in the morning or early afternoon.

English Breakfast should be steeped for 2-3 minutes at a temperature of 210°F or 99°C.

Black tea does contain caffeine. To illustrate, one would need to drink 3 cups of black tea to equal the same content caffeine as 1 cup of drip coffee.

All tea including English Breakfast comes from the evergreen shrub known as Camellia Sinensis.
