English Breakfast from Twinings

Style: English Breakfast – Region: ?????

Mar. 9th, 2013

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 ...

English Breakfast (Teabags) from Ahmad Tea

This tea is good. It's strong and not too bitter, the way I like it. It tastes really thick. I added cream and sugar.

The aroma is kind of unpleasantly sweet, but the flavor is really good. It's crisp, and not too bitter. I added cream and sugar.

Organic Breakfast from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

47 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 31st, 2013

I found this to be an above-average black tea in tea bags, but not good enough to justify the price. These sachets are very expensive, almost $10 for only 15. This places them in the same price range with Two Leaves and a Bud, which I prefer.

Aroma is not terribly complex: malty and robust, but not as strong relat...

I enjoyed this in a Barnes and Noble cafe. Compared to Tazo Awake, I prefer this tea pretty solidly. It's perhaps a bit mellower, but I think more complex and smoother.

This was a solid black breakfast tea. It didn't quite scream "English" the way some English Breakfast blends did, but it did strike me as a typic...

English Breakfast from Wedgwood

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 13th, 2013

Firstly, who knew that Wedgwood made tea? Secondly, while I normally like black teas, this was much too strong! It was strong, a little bitter, and tasted too burnt for my liking. While I appreciate other Wedgwood products, I probably won't be having this again.

Dec. 2nd, 2012

After being relatively impressed with Yorkshire Tea's tea bags, I was let down when I tried their loose-leaf. It tasted really similar, which was good, but it was not markedly better!

The aroma is rich and malty, and there is a faint hint of wintergreen in the aroma as well. Smoother than average for a tea of this...

Aug. 27th, 2012

A robust, good-quality English Breakfast tea with a quality slightly suggestive of Yunnan black teas.

The large, mostly whole leaves infuse quite slowly, but this tea becomes quite strong if you let it steep long enough. Moderate bitterness, full-bodied, not too astringent.

I would be curious to learn what goes ...

Aug. 20th, 2012

This tea smells kind of like green tea, which I don't like. The flavor is kind of bland, but okay. I would never buy it because I can find cheaper versions of basic decaf black tea that taste better. I added cream and sugar.

I like this tea. It has a nice strong flavor, and it's not too bitter, but it gets more bitter at the bottom of the cup. I added cream and sugar.

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...

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.

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.

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...

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, ...

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.
