English Breakfast from Harney and Sons

This is an excellent breakfast tea. I find a bit of sugar and milk really brings out the mellowness.

I really like this tea. It doesn't overpower with a single flavor, indicative of a good blend.

English Breakfast from Stash Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Blend

56 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 24th, 2019

The most notable aspect of the flavor is that it's tannic, although not overly so. Still, it lacks much else to recommend it. I'd rather it had a bit more citrus to balance it, but there's just not a lot to it.

This strikes me as a tea perhaps intended for coffee drinkers looking to switch it up. It's also mild en...

Mar. 21st, 2019

This has a pleasant, earthy aroma that fades too quickly once you drink it. I was let down by the fairly bland taste. It's labeled as a blend of Ceylon and Indian teas; the Ceylon taste comes through the strongest and there isn't much to it past that.

It's acceptable with some additions, but I doubt I'd get it agai...

English Breakfast from Adagio Teas

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 19th, 2019

A bit earthy for my taste. I prefer a lighter breakfast tea, but this is still well worth the brew, especially with milk and sugar.

Feb. 10th, 2019

After bringing this breakfast tea home from a conference, I tried it at dinnertime while eating a tub of cottage cheese. The tea brewed up very dark, quickly, such that a spoon disappeared from view below about the top two inches of liquid. This wasn't too surprising, considering how finely chopped the dry-bag leaves...

Devonshire English Breakfast Black Tea from Celestial Seasonings

Jan. 20th, 2019

"Devonshire" has one of the most full-bodied dry-bag aromas I've gotten from a breakfast tea, and unusually, it nearly matches the flavor for intensity. I detected virtually no difference between dry-bag scent, in-cup scent, and taste, the latter likewise being straightforwardly well-constructed within a nice, dark br...

English Breakfast from Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea Co

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Nilgiri, India

64 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 15th, 2019

For a simple tea, this has to have the most convoluted backstory for any I've tried. First, the tea itself: it had remarkably weak dry-bag and wet-bag aromas for what seemed to be a high-quality, single-estate tea, though in-cup, the smell was richer and fairly basic. The flavor wasn't particularly strong or bold, bu...

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 10th, 2019

Without beating around the bush, this is a really good Sri Lankan/Ceylon tea. This seems to be one of the few brands of bagged tea that selected Sri Lankan tea for its flavors rather than for simply being "mild". This tea is remarkably similar in flavor to Ahmad and Alwazah branded Ceylon teas that are available from M...

For an English breakfast tea I think this one is pretty good! I’m picky about black teas in general because I don’t like when they are too astringent or bitter. This tea isn’t too astringent at all though! However it was a little bitter, but overall it tasted pretty decent. The aroma is good and mild and smells l...

Nov. 9th, 2018

For a food-service tea, this seemed slightly above average...I've had worse, but wouldn't seek it out for home consumption. This is one that, if you spot it in a motel or (as I did) receive it as "hot tea" in a breakfast cafe off I-70 in Kansas, can be consumed safely and without obvious problems. I realize that's no...

Sep. 18th, 2018

Like the others who reviewed this, I was surprised that it tastes nothing like the regular Twinings English Breakfast. I remember that tasting more woody and malty, with a bit of the usual Assam dried fruit note. This has some slightly tangy tropical fruit notes that make me think of Keemun, but it also has this weird ...

I got a cup of this at a gas station, surprisingly. I think it's better than the average English Breakfast, though I'm comparing it to the common bagged English Breakfast blends like Twinings because I have never bought it loose leaf. It mostly tasted like Assam to me, with the hint of a bright honey flavor being the o...

I like this tea! It's so good with a good helpin' of milk!! A good ole helpin'!!! And a little sugar. Tasty breakfast. Provided you're eating food with your breakfast. Overall, I'd say it's a distinctive black tea. Probably one of the most likeable tea's I can think of!

Jun. 7th, 2018

This was my introduction to black tea, so it was interesting to try it again recently. It has that specific malty, woody aroma that makes me think "English Breakfast". The flavor is rather bland compared to everything I've been drinking lately, but I did notice a mild dried fruit note that I never picked up when I used...

May. 16th, 2018

I find this to be a bit of a fascinating tea. Unlike H&S's other English Breakfast offerings (that I'm aware of), it's not a full-leaf tea. Instead, it comes in what looks to be small granule-like pieces. Unlike fannings, these look to be deliberately ground, and it is surely ground finely - I wouldn't suggest using me...

English Breakfast from Benner Tea Co

25 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
May. 12th, 2018

It smells sort of like an English Breakfast blend, I guess. Sort of woody. Far from the most aromatic tea. It tastes like cardboard, very thin, and it's extremely astringent even when brewed for only 3 minutes. The only use for this I can think of is cold brewing it and adding lemonade. It's terrible on its own, and th...

May. 11th, 2018

Like the tin says, it's definitely entirely comprised of nothing but Keemun, with the vegetal, almost barnyard-esque notes of the tea shining through. Probably why it's normally mixed in a typical English Breakfast. It does, however, smell delicious - like any good black tea, it's got that heady aroma of caffeine yet t...

May. 6th, 2018

Sniffing the dry bag resurrected memories of high-school wood shop. At first I didn't understand why, then I realized the modest aroma has a component much like freshly sanded walnut, or basswood. That's not an unpleasant odor, just not what I expect in a tea. Perhaps a carpenter can appreciate this product better t...

Pulled from a hotel breakfast stash (lower-case, not the tea brand), I brought a bag home to chug in my usual well water. Dry-bag and in-cup aroma were feeble, as has been my experience with most Bigelow teas (except Constant Comment, a major favorite). The brew got dark fairly quickly, tasting pleasant enough, rather...

Compared to another tea at twice the price same brew time, same water amount and same cup style. Was hard to tell them apart. For the price and ease of purchase worth the money for an everyday cup.

Not a bad tea at all. I usually double bag it though since I like my tea strong and plentiful. I've had a lot of this as my old work used to stock it and I was never disappointed per se, but always wished it was a little better.
