Breakfast TEAS conjure up BLACK TEAS, strong flavoured, high in caffeine thoughts for most of us. We want a ‘WAKE UP TEA’ and we certainly have a great selection of them; one for every taste so to speak. Below are our suggestions for BLACK TEAS to make your morning special.
Irish Breakfast tea is a popular tea found in many of our customers tea cupboards.
Most “breakfast teas” are made by blending different types of black teas together. Tea leaves from different areas such as India, Sri Lanka, Kenya, China and Africa are blended to create the perfect blends. These teas tend to have more of a robust flavour to accompany a hearty breakfast than the afternoon teas which are usually lighter in taste These breakfast teas go well with milk and sugar.
Assam black tea is from India and has a bolder almost malty taste than the others
Ceylon from Sri Lanka is a brisk milder tasting black tea
Kenya teas from Africa tend to have a bolder taste and are used mainly for blending purposes. Sumatra tea from Indonesia a strong tea is also used in blends.
We have a number of breakfast teas to satisfy all tastes:
Irish Breakfast: a blend of top quality teas Assam, China & India – nice strong flavour
Organic English Breakfast Rwanda: Rwanda OP full leaf – mellow fresh flavour
Scottish Breakfast: our own blend of full leaf black teas
Canadian Breakfast: our own blend of full leaf black teas
The best way to figure out which blend appeals to you is to buy a 10g ram sample bag of each one and give them a try. You could even brew up a cup of each and do your own tea taste test to com- pare them side by side. If you add milk and sugar be sure to add the same amount to each one for a fair comparison.
