English Breakfast from Oliver Pluff & Company

Style: Black Tea – Region: Blend

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 23rd, 2024

The aroma is very pleasant, a nice black tea with a hint of fruit (peaches). The liquor (5 min steep) is a medium brown with a bit of red. The flavor is excellent, a good strong taste, with a slight tangy after taste I would say perfect start for your morning. This tea would easily accommodate sugar or cream.

Wonderful strong aroma, Assam and Ceylon blend offer a pleasant earthy aroma. Nice brisk tea. I buy sachets for when I have breakfast at a restaurant. This is a great tea for the first cup of the morning. I will buy this again.

Festive Breakfast (Teabags) from Whittard of Chelsea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

74 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 4th, 2024

Whittard has a single-sourced English Breakfast by name (from West Java), and an entirely different tea more of the traditional EB style—this one—composed of Ceylon and Kenya teas. Unlike the named EB, I couldn't find Festive Breakfast on Whittard's website, but instead, got it as part of a gift assortment.

Oct. 25th, 2023

I am very happy with this so far. Upton has a number of good, reasonably priced breakfast blends, and this is one of them--so far, I have very positive feelings about it. The aroma is fresh and sweet, and reminds me of pipe tobacco. It is a medium-bodied blend, with a nutty, bready flavor. It is pretty smooth overa...

I had this tea at a local restaurant with my breakfast. Very enjoyable. Steeps quickly. Nice blend flavor. Great pairing with my meal. I will order this tea every time I dine at this restaurant.

Nice aroma, with a mild earthy scent. The liquor (5 min steep) is a dark brown. Good flavor, easy to sip all day long. Nice blend.

Jan. 1st, 2023

As with their "Green Tea with Coconut & Ginger", I got this at a last-day estate sale for a quarter (proportionate fraction of a bulk pantry buy). Not per bag, but for the entire tin! That's the best value I've had for a good tea. However, you probably can't match that. So how costly is it, for real? A peek at the...

Dec. 13th, 2022

This is a perfectly nice, reasonably priced English breakfast tea, offered at a good price too. The Assam and Ceylon teas blend together well, and create a mellow flavor with a dash of butterscotch. I had this with plant milk; English breakfast teas are meant to be served with a little milk.

Nov. 13th, 2022

While still good, this was the least desirable of the Murchie's "Jubilee" line I've tried so far. Blended this year (2022) in honor of the late Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee, it contains a mix of Darjeeling, Assam, Yunnan and Keemun. Given the strong history this company has with teas of those origins individual...

Aroma is medium, reminds me of a Keemun. Liquor steeps (5 minutes) to a deep brown.Good taste with a slight tangy after taste with some floral hints. I would buy this tea again.

Oct. 17th, 2022

One-litre pot at home, made from a mixture of leaves of various broken black teas. Pours clear dark brown (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of leaves, with malty and slightly spicy touches. Bitter, leafy and malty flavour of black tea, most probably including some varieties of Assam and Ceylon. Astrin...

Irish Breakfast (Loose) from Twinings

Apr. 27th, 2022

The version I'm rating is from the "American" tin (packed in Greensboro, NC, but presumably shipped over in bulk to parse out for that purpose). It doesn't look appreciably different from the photo I uploaded off Twinings' website.

Dry aroma was surprisingly weak for an Irish Breakfast blend, but pleasant to the e...

Apr. 8th, 2022

This is another box of tea from iherb.com. I'd about given up on finding a decent decaf black tea, but I had a discount and so the price was right.

These are the loose, tagless tea bags typical of Ireland and the UK, containing 3g of tea each. The dry tea smells surprisingly strong for a decaf, but as others have no...

Apr. 7th, 2022

This Ceylon/Assam blend is yet another in a long line of Murchie's teas paying tribute to British royalty in some way. According to the website: "Murchie's Balmoral Blend Tea was originally blended for York House School—a private school for girls which has been an institution in Vancouver for over 75 years.

English Breakfast from The Tao of Tea

Feb. 25th, 2022

When first opening the tin, the tea smells earthy and dusty, very much like an inexpensive Yunnan black tea. The leaves are quite large for loose leaf tea at this price, but there are more than a few twig fragments among the leaves. This also matches my experience with inexpensive Yunnan black tea.

While brewing, th...

Feb. 17th, 2022

My samples of Barry's Decaf came from a motel where the "regular" tea was Lipton. As such, I haven't tried the normal, caffeinated breed of this tea yet for comparison's sake. Both there and at home, I tried it before bedtime, as the website advocated (but without knowing of said suggestion yet).

Dec. 1st, 2021

I have ordered this tea many times over the years, and am surprised I did not rate it yet. In the past it has been a well-priced and full-flavored tea experience, and a go-to when I wanted something malty and smoky, with a little milk and no sugar. My most recent purchase of it was less enjoyable. This time a harsh,...

Murchie's carries so many different tea blends that it takes a long time—years, at a normal tea-drinking pace—to get around to trying most of them. I wish this one had landed on my porch sooner! This may be the richest, smoothest, fullest-bodied all-black tea blend of theirs, or anybody's for that matter, that I'...

Another Murchie's mix marches out of the box and firmly into fond appreciation, this one in a traditional but growing group that honors assorted British royalty. The dry-bag aroma is mild but pleasant, offering an honest hint at the smooth and bold flavor to come. This blend tastes, has in-cup aroma and smells in the...

Somehow, through all the teas I've chugged the last few years, Scottish Breakfast hasn't gone down the gullet yet. Why? Forgive my neglect. I've been missing out. I won't speak for other shops' renditions yet, but Murchie's has a championship-caliber blend going here.

This tea came from a motel. That isn't surprising, considering that the Bigelow website for the product offers 48-bag boxes and cases thereof, as if targeting the food-service market. I've gotten the regular version of this (which is mediocre too) in motels as well as on airplanes.

Imagine if Lipton black tea were actually really good, how it should taste. This is that. 1894 is one of the original Murchie's teas from nearly 130 years ago, first blended by their founder in Victorian-era Vancouver. It's a simple, straightforward, unpretentious mix of good-quality Ceylon and Assam, with both the ...

As decaf teas go, this was about the best I've had. I think I've found a new beverage to chug when I get a hankerin' for black tea before bedtime. Long a big fan of their traditional Murchie's Afternoon (formerly Empress Afternoon), I got this in a variety pack and didn't even open the box for months, afraid of disa...

One-litre pot at home, made from a mixture of fine, curly dark brown leaves of Assam and Ceylon. Pours clear lightish copper brown (against white china) with no sediment. Clear, malty aroma of Assam, with milder, leafy notes of Ceylon. Bitter, leafy flavour with some malty notes. Astringent palate with a malty aftertas...
