English Breakfast from Choice Organic Teas

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 9th, 2013

While this wasn't my favorite bagged version of this tea, Choice put forth a decent English Breakfast. I think it could compete with Bigelow and Twinings as an everyday black tea. I'm giving Choice a few extra stars for being organic, which is always a big plus in my book!

English Breakfast from Dilmah

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Aug. 29th, 2013

This was not what I expected; a very smooth English breakfast tea. Very full-bodied and mild, more sweet than bitter. Creamy, and a bit bland flavor-wise.

Aroma is unusual...the dominant quality is vanilla and caramel, but in those subtle ways that pure teas exhibit these sorts of qualities. Slightly flat tasting...

Aug. 24th, 2013

This is my usual choice on work days mornings. I go to Starbucks, quick and easy. It has good flavor and will help open your eyes on an early morning.
Full leaf, so it has decent taste. Convenient.

Aug. 15th, 2013

This tea is nothing special. It's a pity, you'd expect Twinings to get at least a basic English Breakfast tea right, but sadly this one falls short. Not only is the flavor lacking, but it's easily overbrewed, and tends towards the bitter side.

If one manages to properly brew it, there's still nothing to write ho...

British Breakfast from Republic of Tea

43 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 29th, 2013

I was actually quite interested to finally sample this tea, as Republic of Tea seems more oriented towards blends and flavored teas, but I tend to like pure teas best.

I found this to be an average black tea in tea bags. Nothing really jumped out at me. There were fewer objectionable qualities (less harshness) tha...

Organic Breakfast from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 3rd, 2013

This is served at a local coffee shop I go to - along with other (and better) varieties of Mighty Leaf. This is a run-of-the-mill black blend - fully caffeinated - and not a fave but better than grocery-store brands. I much prefer (as Alex has said) the green ones.

Also it brews/steeps up dark and fast - 4 minutes...

Everything about this tea is fair, I was not overwhelmed by the aroma or the taste. Sadly it was all bland. The aroma was malty and there was a slightly malty taste. I added a bunch of cream and it brought out some of the richer maltiness of the tea.

Jun. 12th, 2013

I thought this tea was okay. Nothing too crazy.

It was a bitter hot and less so as it cooled off, so I'd be more inclined to make iced tea out of it. There wasn't much of a smell, which I feel is pretty typical for most English Breakfasts I've had anyway.

I'll stick with other brands by Ahmad -- some of their lo...

Jun. 7th, 2013

Like Paisley's other offerings, this is finely-broken tea in a flat paper tea bag.

In contrast to Paisley's other teas, which I found overwhelmingly strong, this one was weaker than typical for black tea. I steeped it a bit longer than normal, and both the color and flavor were on the mellow side.

The aroma is i...

May. 29th, 2013

Of all the teas I've sampled from Tazo in both the old tea bags, and the new full leaf sachets, this is the one that I think improved the least.

I thought the old tea was already pretty complex, above average for a tea bag, but I think this one is below average for a whole leaf sachet.

Aroma is mostly malty, typi...

Wow does this have caffeine in it or what? Dark and Black - brews up quickly and easy to find everywhere that carries Starbbucks. I usually opt for Zen or another Tazo blend to this - but if it was this or Lipton? I'd take Awake for sure. Very strong black tea.

English Breakfast from Stash Tea

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 13th, 2013

An inexpensive English Breakfast (bagged) option from Stash. Not great but not bad either. Black, caffeinated, full bodied and brews up quickly to an inky black (be careful). Readily available. Good hot. (Not ideal iced in my opinion.)

This tea was very fresh when I picked it up. Dry leaf is largeish pieces of broken orthodox tea, with a pleasant aroma, typical of black tea but with hints of cinnamon and wintergreen, a good sign!

Brews a very dark color. Very aromatic, and with a very smooth flavor! Only slightly malty, balanced with fruity qua...

Apr. 23rd, 2013

I thought this tea was good for a typical English Breakfast, nothing outstanding. It wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be given that it is loose-leaf tea, but I did enjoy the roasted smell and the heaviness of its consistency. I'd drink it again, but wouldn't go out of my way for it.

I thought this tea uninteresting. As an English Breakfast tea, I strongly prefer Twinings Ceylon Orange Pekoe. If they labelled that tea as their English Breakfast, I'd be perfectly convinced.

This tea has a very bold flavor. It is quite bitter--more so than astringent, which I like. Produces a clear cup with a ...

I'm not crazy about the flavor of this tea. It's a little bitter, and very sensitive to brewing time. I brewed it for 2 minutes and that seems to be optimal. I usually brew tea for at least 4 minutes because I like it strong. I added cream and sugar.

This is the first tea I've tried from Ahmad Tea that I was disappointed with. I found it uninteresting and below-average quality.

Aroma is slightly malty, but weak overall.

I found this tea to have an unpleasant sourness and a slightly odd aroma. The aroma was malty, but it seemed too much like other generic br...

A good choice if you are looking for an English Breakfast tea and it's organic & fair trade to boot. It has a bold and distinct flavor -- for an English Breakfast -- but is not overpowering. Goes quite well with a lump of sugar and a spot of milk. Cheers.

This is a really standard but high-quality black tea. It doesn't taste like an English Breakfast blend though; it's not particularly malty or robust. I found it a bit boring.

Brews an opaque orangish-brown. Aroma is fruity and reminiscent of a typical Ceylon black tea of decent quality. Flavor is moderately stro...

To be honest this really doesn't do a lot for me and sadly it's the usual offering in cafes and teashops here if you ask for an English Breakfast. Never brews up strong enough for my tastes, and it's a fairly insipid flavour. To be honest, It won't offend but it's not going to blow your socks off and wow you either. I ...
