Loose-Leaf Organic English Breakfast Black Tea from Wegmans

Black tea leaves with some reddish-olive hues, slightly curved, a few slightly broken piecesView Full Resolution

This is a typical-looking loose-leaf English Breakfast tea blend. Because it is a blend of teas from different regions, there is a blend of different leaf shapes, some long and wiry, some broken, some shorter and curved.

This is an orthodox tea blend, i.e. a blend of hand-processed teas. Many English Breakfast teas are blends of mechanically-processed CTC teas; these look like small pellets or finer dust.
