Our Organic Fair Trade English Breakfast Tea, with its full, robust, malty and slight citrus flavor, is one of the most popular blends of black tea. It's a good choice for those who prefer a bit of milk or and sugar or honey in their tea, and is hearty enough to pair with a full breakfast or a tea-time snack of freshly baked scones.
Why chose our loose leaf tea versus traditional tea bags?
- The high quality whole leaves preserve the essential oils and aroma that make tea so wonderfully flavorful.
- The leaves in most bags are the "dust and fannings" from broken leaves, meaning they release more tannins which can result in a bitter, astringent brew.
- The material, shape and size of a tea bag can adversely affect the flavor.
DirectionsTea leaves need room to expand and unfurl once boiling water is poured over them. Be sure to use a large, roomy tea ball. Or, to enjoy, pour 6 ounces simmering water (185 degrees preferred) over one teaspoon of tea. Steep 4 to 5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
Suggested usesEnjoy plain, or add milk, sugar or honey. Pairs wonderfully with your morning breakfast or pastry.
