English Breakfast from Twinings

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

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
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...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
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...

English Breakfast Black Tea from Bigelow Tea

66 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 23rd, 2018

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.

Overpriced for what you get. I like the tin though. This is a utility tea; it'll wake you up without being unpleasant tasting.

This tea smelled fantastic, but it was disappointing when I actually brewed it. It also didn't seem to match the commercial description or my expectations for an English Breakfast blend.

The dry leaf has a fresh, light fruity aroma, smelling very sweet and bright. The fruitiness is more like fresh grapes than drie...

Really delicious tea!!! I am heartbroken that Lipton Tea has decided to discontinue English Breakfast tea...my favorite tea. Now I have to go and find a brand of English Breakfast tea that tastes just as good. Any ideas?

Another tea I ordered at Copper Cup in Lancaster, PA.

Rich and malty, full-bodied, but not overly tannic, with just the right amount of body and fruit. Aroma of malt and dried fruit. I find Kandy tends to produce teas that have a classic British character, and this tea is no exception...it tended a little more tow...

I got a sample of this in my last order from MTW. It looks just like the photo on the web page, not CTC but not whole leaf either. Looks like it came from a teabag.

I brewed it 4 minutes using boiling water per instructions. It had a slightly muddy appearance. The main impression was astringency, that coated the ton...

The golden tag accompanying the bag says, "Over 300 years of experience." To adapt something an old professor of mine used to say: "Experience is only an advantage if you learn and improve. If you stay the same, you might as well have one year of experience repeated 300 times." Given the unimpressive character of t...

This tea isn't super great, but it's definitely not the worst thing. The price is pretty good, $1.20 for a box of 20 bags. However, there are teas that are the same price but are much better quality.

The flavor was decent for the first couple of sips, it had a sort of floral taste. Quickly though, my mouth began to ...

Twinings teas in general consistently fail to impress me, though before this, I mostly had tried a few of their bagged offerings. A box of this was available at an estate sale, really cheap, so I figured to give it a run. While it's better than their bagged teas, and not a bad tea at all, I'm still no fan.

Sep. 2nd, 2017

I've recently started looking for Fair Trade Certified teas, so I decided to try a box of Mighty Leaf tea.

My first impression is that the tea is lower quality than the packaging and price would indicate. The box says that the sachets contain "whole leaf tea," but the tea in the sachets is in quite small pieces, not...

Okay this is a first time tea review. My husband brought a couple of Rituals English Breakfast teabags home from a trip. I opened the first teabag and was pleasantly surprised--I had expected something pretty nasty. But I enjoyed it. Right now I am using the second teabag. Knowing that it's not available in stores make...

The commercial description of this tea is pretty grandiose...it makes it sound like a masterpiece of blending, and I would say it's not.

To me, this is a classic but somewhat run-of-the-mill blend that is enjoyable but stands out in no way. I would not describe it as complex, although it's a good bit more complex, ...

Other reviews of this tea seemed to be about the bagged variety, so I hope it's OK to create a new category.

This is the first loose leaf tea I ever tried, mostly because it's the only one I could find. It's about $10 for 7ozs. at Cost Plus.

It has a faint smell in the can. It has small leaves with flecks of go...

Has a full, rich aroma. Good amber color. Nice, rich flavor. All the flavor of a full leaf with the convenience of a tea bag. I take this along to my favor breakfast place, I enjoy this more than the Lipton the restaurant serves.

After having originally drank the earl grey from Twinnings for a couple weeks, I decided I wanted to try some of their other types, and I had been drinking this one ever since. I'd arguably say that this tea is not quite as powerful as the earl grey, but it's smoother, and doesn't have any overpowering aftertaste. The ...

This tea is exceptional! English breakfast tea is by far my favorite tea by twining and by far my favorite tea in general! This tea goes very well with milk and creates a soft, silky and satisfying texture. This tea is not to robust nor light, it's just right. If you really want to make this tea even better, use half a...
