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).

      Best tea I’ve had

      I love this tea. The flavor is bold and full bodied, yet bright. I have become a tea snob because of this.

      When I tried this tea in the individual pyramid it was excellent! But the loose tea was not as good as the first one I tried. I would recommend to get an individual packages. In my view the quality is higher.
