English Breakfast is a full-bodied black tea blend that goes well with a traditional English breakfast. The original cup was made with black Keemun tea from Anhui province in China. Across many generations, plenty of different interpretations of this famous blend have been made. Our English Breakfast stays close to the classic. Made from top quality black Keemun tea, prized for its rich, slightly smoky flavor and perfectly 'on point' astringency. Balanced, very honeyed aroma. May be enjoyed plain or with a drop of milk. This fine example of English Breakfast remains one of Adagio's most popular varieties.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

Teabags

teabags

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Fresh From Origin

The English required a tea strong enough to wash down their beloved Fry-up, a typical morning fare of fried bacon, sausage, mushroom, eggs and tomato. The rich but refreshing black teas of Keemun were found to be an ideal beverage for all this cholesterol. English Breakfast was also instrumental in the Monty Python spam sketch (waitress: 'Well, there's egg and bacon; egg, sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg, bacon and spam...')... which thereafter gave annoying and unsolicited emails their nickname.
