One of our most popular breakfast teas, our English Breakfast is a mildly robust blend of Chinese Keemun and Ceylon black teas. We classify this as mildly robust when compared to our other hand blended breakfast teas, Irish and Scottish, as those are a bit heartier. Still, our English Breakfast is enjoyed by many of our customers throughout the day due to the perfect pairing of the black teas that hold up well to milk and leave just a hint of honey on the palate.

Steeping Instructions: 1-1.5 tsp, Boiling Water, 3-5 Minutes

Ingredients: Sri Lankan and Chinese Black Teas

Fun Facts or Useless Information…You Decide:

The blend we know as English breakfast tea is in fact thought to have been the creation of a Scottish tea master named Drysdale, who in 1892 saw the need for a stronger flavored tea – what he called an ‘eye-opener’ – to cut through the heaviness of the average breakfast. The breakfast blend was tasted and admired by Queen Victoria during a stay at Balmoral. She subsequently brought a stash back to London with her, where it was controversially renamed ‘English breakfast tea’.

    English Breakfast - Fit for the Queen

    Published by M. Marni on Apr 9th 2023

    I recently tried the English Breakfast tea from The Spice & Tea Shoppe and I have to say, it exceeded all my expectations. The aroma alone is enough to make me feel calm and relaxed. The taste is smooth, rich, and full-bodied, with a subtle hint of sweetness that doesn't overpower the traditional black tea flavor. I was also impressed with the quality of the tea leaves used in this blend. They were large and intact, which I believe contributed to the full flavor of the tea. Overall, I highly recommend the English Breakfast tea from The Spice & Tea Shoppe. It's the perfect start to my morning and helps me power through the day. Whether you're a seasoned tea drinker or new to the world of tea, this blend is sure to please.

    High Quality English Breakfast

    Published by E. R. on Jul 10th 2021

    I've had many English Breakfast blends, but theirs is by far the best. They do all loose leaf tea and you can physically see how high quality their teas are.
