The Teasup Breakfast Blend
Our signature, award-winning English Breakfast Tea. The key is the speciality tea leaves - fine-plucked, high grown, smallholder tea from the best planting districts around Mt Kenya, high grown tea from the the Gisovu Tea Estate in Rwanda, and premium second flush Assam leaves from the Hunwal Tea Estate in India.
The result is a rich, full-bodied tea with a lovely golden colour. Strength and briskness comes from the East African teas, balanced with the maltiness of Assam. Great with a dash of milk and a perfect way to start your day.
Brewing instructions: 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag. 3-5mins at 95-100ºC with milk.
Good to know fun fact: The first English breakfast blend actually comes from America! In 1843, Richard Davies, an English apothecary from Hull who had founded a small tea company in New York, made a new mix of tea that he called “English Breakfast”, and the people loved it!
Food pairing: Extremely versatile and perfect with breakfast, whether its English or Continental, cakes or chocolate.
