What is English Breakfast Tea?
The nations favourite is a blend of Assam, Ceylon and Kenyan to create a flavour we all know and love. It is a black blend which is usually described as full-bodied, malty and refreshing with floral light undertones.
Consuming black blends at breakfast time is a historical British tradition. We have Englishman Richard Davies to thank for our morning ritual. He established the Canton Tea Company in 1843, and soon released the worlds first ‘English Breakfast Tea’.
It was a hit in the UK, and its popularity soon spread around the world as other companies replicated his invention. Today the blend is iconic, and most drinkers still use this term to refer to their morning cup.
How to brew English Breakfast Tea…
Brewing has a huge affect on the final result of your cup, including flavour and quality. Get the brewing wrong, and you could end up with a weak watery flavour or a stewed cup.
Here are our best tips for high quality brewing:
- Grab your favourite infuser teapot. Rinse it out with hot water to remove dust and dirt, plus this also preheats the pot.
- Take off the lid and scoop in the loose leaf, using one scoop per mug of water.
- Boil the kettle and pour the hot water through the filter basket.
- Place the lid on and allow to brew for around 2 – 3 minutes.
- Once brewed, remove the lid and filter basket (with caution, it may be hot).
- Pour into your favourite cups.
- Add in your favourite accompaniments (e.g milk, sugar, sweetener).
- Sit back, sip and enjoy.
