A true classic.
The nations favourite for a reason! Our breakfast blend of the finest Assam & Darjeeling is perfect for those who love a malty and smooth cuppa. Our blend is packed each June in India’s lush Assam & Darjeeling regions in the North East of the country. A cup of this whole-leaf loose tea is great for any mood at any time of day, promise. Our English Breakfast provides a smoother brew with no bitter aftertaste.
What are the health benefits of black tea? Black tea can help to lower stress levels, a study by UCL showed that tea lovers are able to de-stress and lower their cortisone levels quicker than those who don’t drink tea. Win win!
We love our English Breakfast tea but don't just take our word for it, this one is the winner of 6 Great Taste Awards.
Fun fact: University of Nottingham found that dunking a biscuit improves the flavour. Our favourite biscuit to dunk is a chocolate chip shortbread.
Ingredients: Each box contains 75g of Assam & Darjeeling loose leaf tea
How to make the perfect cup of English Breakfast tea:
Step 1: Use one teaspoon per cup
Step 2: Use freshly drawn boiled water, all black teas can take the heat!
Step 3: Brew for 90 seconds, or leave for longer according to personal taste
Step 4: Milk is optional and you don't need sugar, you're sweet enough!
My worst nightmare, you’re out of stock!
Guilt free sipping
At We Are Tea, we're on a mission to bring the highest quality tea to the masses in a way that everyone can be proud of. Our blends are ethically sourced via the Ethical Tea Partnership which works on facilitating strategic sustainability projects, rigorous health and safety standards, and increasing farmer's resilience to climate change.
Our plastic free tea bags are made from soilon, a bi-product of corn starch which can fully biodegrade under the correct conditions in 3 – 6 months.
We call this guilt-free sipping, and it's tea-rrific.
Storage instructions: Keep away from moisture (until it lands in your cup!) We recommend you store your tea in an opaque, airtight container. It might look pretty in glass, but the light damages the tea leaves and subsequent taste. Nooo!
