About English Breakfast

Black tea leaves with some reddish-olive hues, slightly curved, a few slightly broken piecesLoose-leaf English breakfast tea. This is a whole-leaf orthodox tea; English Breakfast blends can also consist of finely broken, mechanically processed CTC tea.
English Breakfast is a style of breakfast black tea known for being robust and strong, such that it often goes well with milk and a large, hearty breakfast, although it tends to be less strong than Irish Breakfast.

English Breakfast typically combines black teas from different regions, and there is no formula defining which varieties of tea are used in it. Commonly Assam and Ceylon black teas are used, although Chinese black teas such as Keemun or Yunnan are sometimes used, as well as teas from Africa or Indonesia. A few English Breakfast teas are single-origin.

This style is defined more by its flavor and character than by the particular origin or production method of the tea. In England, this style of tea is the default style of tea and is usually what is referenced when people refer to "tea" without any other qualifiers.

There is great variety among English Breakfast teas. Some brands of tea clearly identify which varities are used in their English Breakfast blend, whereas others do not. RateTea classifies any tea as English Breakfast which is labeled or marketed as such, even if it could also be classified as another style of tea, such as Keemun or Assam.

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...

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...

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!
