English Breakfast from Ronnefeldt

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 1st, 2011

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...

English Breakfast from Red Rose Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

Mar. 17th, 2011

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...

English Breakfast from Golden Moon Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

Jan. 31st, 2011

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...

English Breakfast from Stash Tea

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.

English Breakfast from Wedgwood

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

47 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 14th, 2010

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 ...

English Breakfast from Boston Tea Company

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 7th, 2010

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...

English Breakfast from Stash Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

Jun. 14th, 2010

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.

English Breakfast from Harney and Sons

Style: English Breakfast – Region: China

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 16th, 2010

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...

Awake English Breakfast Filterbag from Tazo Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

57 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
May. 12th, 2010

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

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

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 2nd, 2010

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...

English Breakfast from Darvilles of Windsor

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 3rd, 2010

This is a very strong black tea. While I tend to prefer slightly more mellow black teas, this tea is among one of the better teas of such strength that I've tried. Unusually malty for an English breakfast, and the malt is rich and fulfilling. Almost more like an Irish breakfast. Strongly bitter and strongly astring...

English Breakfast from Hampstead Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: India

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 2nd, 2010

Aroma is rice-like, and very slightly malty, with a slight hint of smokiness, and somewhat fruity. Most of these qualities are very subtle. It's hard to say whether the aroma is balanced or muddled...it somehow straddles these two possibilities. I am not crazy about how the different aspects of the aroma blend toget...

The aroma is good, but a little weak. The flavor is stronger. Possibly one of my favorite black teas.

I drink this a lot and bring it with me to class. I like English breakfast tea in general and this is tasty and a good price. It tastes great with some lemon and honey.
