Organic English Breakfast from Paisley Label Tea (Paisley Tea Co)

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 25th, 2012

I was very interested to try the teas from this newly-launched effort of Two Leaves tea. This was an above-average quality British-style tea bag with finely-broken black tea, from the same company that I'm used to selling high-quality pyramid sachets. Good but not amazing. No brewing instructions on the container; I...

English Breakfast Tea from Tetley Tea

Jul. 13th, 2012

This was a simple black tea, no bells and whistles. I thought it was good, but I didn't find the flavor as robust as the description suggests. I'd recommend another brand, such as Bigelow, for a more full-bodied, bagged, English Breakfast tea.

English Breakfast (Kenilworth Ceylon Tea) from Novus Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Kandy, Sri Lanka

May. 29th, 2012

This was a strong full-bodied black tea. It didn't have much of an aroma, but I liked its taste. Overall I'd drink it again but it won't be my staple black tea.

Lovely tea with a strong (not overwhelming) flavor. Great way to start the day or settle into the late afternoon.

English Breakfast (Kenilworth Ceylon Tea) from Novus Tea

Mar. 8th, 2012

This tea is really good, if not oversteeped. I steeped it for 5 minutes and it was too bitter, but then I tried it again and I steeped it for 3 minutes, and it was perfect. I usually like strong tea, and it was strong enough. It didn't have a very distinctive aroma. I added cream and sugar.

I find it a bit strange that Novus offers both a caffeinated and decaffeinated Ceylon tea from Kenilworth estate. Usually, companies do not wish to draw attention to the difference between a caffeinated tea and its decaffeinated counterpart, as the decaf tea usually pales in comparison. But, in this case, Novus boldl...

Opaque and dark black tea with a bit of smoothness. It has some unique qualities and is not the typical black tea, but it lacks any real complexity or richness. Quite plain, really.

I have to say that, especially for a plain black tea, I find this divine. I’ve purchased a few boxes and it’s a staple go-to tea for a quick cup of tea that’s bold and refreshing when I have little time. I do drink it with sugar (1 tsp.) to enhance the flavor. Deep and rich, careful not to oversteep. My son enjoy...

Dec. 11th, 2011

A stronger, fuller flavour than cheaper brands of breakfast tea. I struggle to describe the aroma, but anyone familiar with English style tea will recognise and appreciate it. It also has a familiar taste of bitterness that will go down nicely with any tea lover.
This one deserves a proper tasting at any time of day, ...

Organic Breakfast from Mighty Leaf Tea

Nov. 10th, 2011

I find this tea to have a more "sophisticated" flavor than other types of black teas. It's more complex and diverse in flavors as you sip. Aside from the caffeine doing its job, the flavors alone wake me up when I drink it.

Brewing too long (which I tend to do) makes it quite bitter. The tea bag says brew for fou...

English Breakfast from Bromley Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

Nov. 1st, 2011

Bought a box of this from Smart & Final about three years ago. At that point, ANYTHING was better than Lipton so even Bromley looked exotic to me. Not all bad, but very generic. Took two bags to get a good 8-ounce cuppa. Kind of a rustic, tannic mid-palette that is strange but appealing.

This tea was interesting to me as it is pure Keemun, and not a blend of different teas, or predominately Ceylon possibly with some Assam, the way a lot of English breakfast blends nowadays are. I don't know much about the history of tea so I can't say much about the authenticity of this tea.

I will say, compared to...

English Breakfast from Revolution Tea

Sep. 13th, 2011

Moderate strength, relatively full-bodied, but considerably less bitter than typical for an English breakfast.

I think I prefer the green and white teas from Revolution tea, but this one was not bad.

Pricey though, for the quality. Revolution's other teas, in my opinion, deliver something more unique whereas thi...

A friend brought this back from Europe for me. The caption on this tea cracks me up...'prickelndem' is translated as 'scintillating', and the combination of "typical" (which does not have the same connotation as the German "typischer") leads to a bit of a contradiction: "A typical Ceylon tea with a scintillating flavo...

I had the opportunity to sample this a couple times. The second time I had a fresher sample and it tasted noticeably better. The tea bag smelled malty, which was a good sign!

Brews a rich, dark color. Flavor is weaker than I expect from this style: not very bitter, and aroma is less malty than I like. Compared t...

It smells very smokey right out of the package. Must have quite a bit of Keemun. This tea is perfect for today- I have been alone with my small kids for a few days, and I’m exhausted and also feel a cold coming on. This tea is perfect to wake me up, and also comfort. While trying to watch the kids and steep tea, I ov...

The flavors are mild and disappear wuickly if you like to add anything to your tea (I like honey). The finish is a bit acidic, but not overly so. It's fairly decent for bagged tea.

This is a CTC tea and it is insanely strong. I brewed for a little less than a minute, using less than a teaspoon of leaf, and it was still a bit strong for me. This tea is fairly aromatic; I'm not sure exactly the proportions that go in but I can definitely taste some Ceylon and what seems like possibly an Assam or ...

This is a classic English Breakfast tea. Medium strength, full-bodied, good black tea aroma with some complexity. There's some earthiness and a pleasant hint of floral black tea tones. Moderately bitter and fairly astringent.

I tried brewing this with different brewing lengths and found no advantage to a longer s...

This is astonishingly smooth (perhaps weak too) for a Breakfast tea. A little bit, but not much strength. There's a mild tannic aftertaste and I almost wish there was more. Odd, as this tea brews a very rich, dark color.

Aroma is mostly malty and not very complex.

Pleasant, but somewhat boring.

Confusingly, the Harney & Sons website says this stuff is 100% Keemun, while the canister implies it's a blend of Keemun and other unnamed black teas. It tastes like Keemun, though, a little smoky, with that vaguely graphite-y aroma. It's pretty smooth, easy to drink without any accoutrements, and has a good, strong, b...

Aroma rather complex...there's a hint of maltiness like an Assam, and a fairly strong presence of the light, clean quality of a high-grown Ceylon (as from Nuwara Eliya), and there are some spicy tones as well, including a hint of clove...and it oddly also has a suggestion of orange in there too.

Flavor is very sour....

English Breakfast Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

In my opinion, this is the best straight black tea from Bigelow and it really stands out among the rest of their offerings. It's a fairly powerful black tea, but it also has some complexity in the aroma...some of the tones suggest that there's a bit of Darjeeling mixed in with whatever else is this blend.

Fairly bi...
