Our English Breakfast is so much more than just a blend of black teas designed to be strong and dark. It’s Organic full-leaf Indian tea, which gives it more layered, rich flavors than a typical English Breakfast teabag. Also, it contains 3.2 grams of tea per sachet, as opposed to 3g in our Organic Assam and 2.5g in our other black teas. This is a high-quality, delicious English Breakfast, as you would expect from Two Leaves and a Bud.
Did you know “Breakfast tea” emerged in Scotland in the late 19th century? Queen Victoria dubbed it “English Breakfast” when bringing some back with her from Balmoral. “Builder’s Tea” is a British term for a strong brew of this tea. Call it what you like, it’s a darn fine cuppa’.
Organic black tea
some buzz, 1/2 cup of coffee
Use 15oz filtered water per sachet.
Pour fulling boiling water over sachet.
Steep 4+ minutes.
Bold and malty with a sweet edge, this is a flavorful every-day tea. It’s great with milk but smooth enough to drink without. Our premium whole leaf tea blend harkens back to the good old days when English Breakfast was made in a teapot.
Like all black tea, English Breakfast requires a high brewing temperature in order to bring out the full, nuanced flavor. Make sure your water’s boiling, and step away from the microwave!
If using milk try a longer steep - up to 7 minutes - before adding the milk.
Despite its name, English Breakfast can be an all-day tea!
