Tea Journeys, English Breakfast Tea is a classic full bodied traditional tea. This tea uses a blend of various black teas originating from areas of Sri Lanka.
English Breakfast Tea is said to be created by Robert Drysdale who originally named it "Breakfast Tea". Tea was originally and initially a beverage to enjoy in the afternoon, however Drysdale sought for a stronger tea to drink in the morning. In the 18th century Queen Victoria tasted this breakfast blend and loved it so much she returned home with a large supply and renamed it "English breakfast" tea. Because of Drysdale, all our tea lovers know that this is a wonderful beverage to help you start your day feeling energised and ready for your day.
Processing Method :
This black tea is picked from an area of SriLanka at a higher elevation. The teas are picked, then withered for a lot longer than other types of black tea, to allow the moisture content to be naturally expelled. The leaves are then exposed to a rolling process to bring the leaf to a certain standard. The final process is to stop the fermentation process, which prevents the leaf from further oxidation.
Our English Breakfast tea gives our tea drinkers a distinctive full-body character
