English Breakfast Loose Leaf Tea
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 tea is great for any mood at any time of day, promise. Our English Breakfast provides a smoother brew with no bitter aftertaste.
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.
The perfect cup of English Breakfast:
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!
This tea is a versatile one and can be used in baking, check out our recipe for English Breakfast fruit loaf.

Guilt free sipping
We’re a nation of tea monsters consuming over 165 million cuppas every year and growing. To keep up with the worlds growing love affair with tea in a socially just and environmentally sustainably way, the Ethical Tea Partnership was formed. Working with individual tea estates, we help producers & smallholder farmers raise their performance against international social & environmental standards to produce ethical tea, as well as address key issues holding back tea sustainability in the global tea producing regions. Funded by us and the other members, this training and support is free for the tea producers (yay).
Last year we were in the office discussing single use plastics and knew that we had to address this in any way we could. We coined the umbrella term guilt-free sipping to cover all our commitments to the environment going forwards. One of the biggies is removing pesky plastic from our packaging completely this year, we already have 100% biodegradable and compostable teabags and takeaway cups.
Ingredients: Each box contains 75g of Assam & Darjeeling loose leaf tea
Storage instructions: Keep away from moisture (until it lands in your cup!) We recommend you store your chamomile tea in an opaque, airtight container. It might look pretty in glass, but the light damages the tea leaves and subsequent taste. Nooo!
