English Breakfast - Loose Leaf Tin
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 (originally named Breakfast Tea) Drinking tea was originally and initially a beverage to enjoy in the afternoon. Drysdale sought for a stronger tea to drink in the morning. In the 18th Century it is believed that Queen Victoria tasted the blend and ‘loved it so much’ to where she returned home with a large supply and renamed it to 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“Tea Juices” to a certain standard. The final process is to stop the fermentation process, which prevents the leaf from further oxidation.
