About English Breakfast Tea

Tea Type : Black Tea

Our award-winning English Breakfast combines the best traditions of builder's tea with more aristocratic fine teas. Strong and highly caffeinated, this fine tea will start your morning properly, and keep you going throughout the day.

From India's Assam growing region and famous Sewpur Estate, an outstanding example of a rich and robust, pure Assam wake up tea. For the ultimate English Breakfast tea, Tea Forté specially selected this exceptional organic leaf for its sweet malty body to delight those seeking the quintessential British cup of tea. A strong, complex cup with or without milk.

While Americans commonly use the English term "high tea" to refer to an aristocratic tea ceremony, this usage is actually incorrect. The UK and Commonwealth countries look at tea through both aristocratic and working-class lenses. One example of this is "builder's tea" - strong tea drunk with milk and sugar that is named because it is a favorite of construction tradesmen. "High tea" refers to the physical height of the table, meaning it is tea served at a full-height table rather than a lower sitting table. In other words, high tea refers to combining the light meal of tea and dinner into a single meal. In fact, in some areas of the UK, dinner is referred to simply as "tea." So, while it certainly sounds elegant, high tea is distinctly lower-class than the leisure-class tradition of having a "low tea" of light snacks followed by a more elaborate, later supper. Incidentally, "low tea" is a phrase that has largely dropped out of popular use, "afternoon tea" is more representative of how the British would refer to the luxurious tea parties of the scones and crumpets variety (as well as more casual afternoon affairs).

      This has become our family's favourite breakfast tea and the only one we will all drink. The rich flavours are the best way to start any day. By far, this is the best English Breakfast Tea we have ever tried and now there is no going back. There is no wonder that this tea has won International awards!

      Excellent Tea. Smooth, rich flavor that holds up to added milk. I drink it every morning and keep it well stocked.

      The best

      The best tea

      What fabulous tea! If, like me, you drink copious numbers of cups of hot black tea with milk a day, there is no better tea than this. Just the right strength, a fabulous flavour, and pretty tea bag pyramids as well, this tea cannot be beaten. I came upon it by accident, and as English breakfast tea is not easy to find in the US, I have tried many brands. Tea Forte is the best by far.
