English Breakfast from Harney and Sons

Style: English Breakfast – Region: China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 24th, 2017

I bought a box of teabags at the same time as a tin of loose tea to see how different they are. The answer is not much.

The box contains twenty individually sealed, standard, flat teabags. The dry tea is chopped up as fannings and has a fainter aroma than I get when sniffing a tin of loose tea, but once it starts br...

English Breakfast from Harney and Sons

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 22nd, 2017

I saw some Harney & Sons teas in a health food store and remembered that they got high reviews here, so I decided to try some. I got a tin of loose leaf English Breakfast and a box of tea bags. The box of teabags says that the blend is 100% Keemun, but the tin just says "blended black tea". I wasn't sure that they were...

English Breakfast from Harney and Sons

Apr. 5th, 2017

Harney says this blend is 100% Keemun and it shows...tastes just like Keemun, which I like, but definitely more like the more modern English Breakfast style than a Keemun picked at random. Fuller-bodied and richer than most English Breakfast, but softer and less crisp.

Dry leaf has an aroma that is gentle and pleas...

English Breakfast from Twinings

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

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 30th, 2017

Twinings English Breakfast is my favorite of the brands I can find at a supermarket. It has a taste distinct from most black teas I've had, and it's one that I don't really mind.
How Twinings describes this tea is rather accurate. The flavor is indeed "complex." When taking an initial sip, it's hard to make out a dist...

Mar. 30th, 2017

This tea is not a bad tea. With that said, I wouldn't necessarily call it a great tea. I feel it is an average tea.
The first cup I had tasted great, and I used microwaved filtered water (I was in a pinch on campus and had no other source of heating water), and it was very good. I let the teabag steep for the recomme...

English Breakfast Decaffeinated from Twinings

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

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 29th, 2017

While the dry tea is nearly odorless, the brewed tea smells much more like tea than many of its decaf competitors. The aroma is faint, but is of a tannic oakiness and light maltiness rather than just wet leaves.

I'll start by saying that the flavor of this tea is very weak and there's no comparison between this tea ...

Meh. It's OK - and as Alex indicated it tastes much differently that the (also "Meh") caffeinated version. I get these in my office for free and only drink it when my own "personal stash" of "good tea" has been depleted. Twinings is inexpensive and easy to find.

This is a black tea with a bit of acidity to it. I...

Mar. 10th, 2017

This was pretty bad. I'd take it over Lipton, but that's not saying much. I like to try low-end teas now and then so that I'm truly aware of the full range of tea on the market, and this was certainly a low-end tea.

This is one product that I honestly had no idea what to expect when I approached it. On the one ha...

Feb. 25th, 2017

I am one of those people to whom this type of tea always tastes faintly like soap. This one, however, pleasantly surprised me. It wouldn't be one of my favorite teas, but I found it far more palatable than other brands. Revolution is one of my favorite tea companies. Even the teas I don't particularly care for seem to ...

A humble English Breakfast tea bag, above average for a flat tea bag, pleasantly smooth and drinkable.

This brand has an almost legendary status on our website...not that a lot of people review it, almost none do, but that we get a ton of messages through our contact form, of people asking where you can buy it. And...

Nov. 30th, 2016

As with their Chamomile (which was a good bit better), I got a few bags of this blend as a hotel guest in edifices where this was provided in-room, in individually wrapped bags. I hoped for more. The tea was surprisingly bitter and rather plain in taste, without any originality or uniqueness. I'd expect that from a ...

It's better than some of their flavored teas (like the dreaded "Constant Comment - that stuff is like potpourri), and OK in a pinch at the office (which is where I get this stuff). I would never spend money on Bigelow teas.

My daughter came back from London with this tea packaged in little cubic tins featuring buses and other London sights. As such, my "value" rating is lower than it could be because she paid a tourist premium at a souvenir shop. I'd buy this without hesitation for normal American store prices.

One of the better lo...

A light liquoring color combines with a slight flowery aroma. Medium astringency and moderate tannins make for a pleasant yet bold experience. This mass-market tea aims for a broad appeal and achieves it.

Part of an Ahmad Tea assortment purchased at a local Marshall's.

Aroma was good, however, I found it quite average and lacking any distinction from the run of the mill brands at the grocery store. I find Ahmad's other offerings are quite good for the price, such as English Tea No. 1, Ceylon, and the green tea.

Sep. 16th, 2015

We were in London, at Harrods, so had to buy something. The English Breakfast tea is decent and comes in a nice tea can. Overpriced by our standards (due to strong GBPound). But other than the novelty of Harrods, for a good cuppa I'm happy with many of the Taylors of Harrogate brands.

Served at Notting Hill coffee shop in Lewes, DE.

An outstanding English Breakfast blend: robust and strong, with a rich and complex aroma. The aroma is slightly malty, and has noticeable wintergreen notes.

Flavor is very bold and rich; flavor is both bitter and savory, and astringency is fairly strong; be carefu...

I recently have started drinking tea a few months ago. This blend is my favorite, smooth, flavorful, and I drink it daily. I boil water, pour over teabag and let steep 3-4 mins. I usually don't add anything but when I do ill toss in a sugar cube. Im still a newbie but compared to other store bought brands it isn't that...

A classic, prototypical English Breakfast tea of average quality. Goes well with milk and probably better suited to people who (unlike me) drink their tea with milk.

A CTC (broken, mechanically-processed) tea; the dry leaf isn't terribly aromatic, but has a pleasant slightly malty aroma.

Produces a very dark cup...

This is a medium strength blend with a sharp taste that reminds me of tobacco. It definitely likes some milk and sugar in it. However, I try to avoid adding sugar to anything, so I also mostly avoid this tea blend.

This is my everyday black tea, as it's a few hundred times better than Lipton and still affordable. It's okay on its own, but I usually add cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, sugar and milk to make my own chai. I don't find it to be too strong or astringent, but I don't steep it for very long and I never go for a seco...

Jan. 15th, 2015

Definitely one of the best English Breakfast teas I've sampled. A somewhat subdued tea that was slow to infuse, but became quite robust if steeped long enough. Quite different from a typical breakfast tea.

The dry leaf, which is fairly large pieces of leaf that are tightly rolled, smelled slightly of cocoa, but wa...

I was so curious about The Black Lotus. Even the name is awesome. The reviews are great. It arrived here fast – loving the design of the bag. So sad Butiki is closing right when I am discovering them.

I brewed this twice – the first time I must have done it too hot a steep and too little as it wasn’t quite str...

Very nice - i like this one - comes in loose and sachets (not bags - I don't think) and I tried it in a sachet form. very nice aroma and easy to drink with or without sweetener. It is caffeinated but not like a "Lipton Black" - much more mellow. Not as good as a straight Darjeeling (first flush, baby!) but a good so...
