I’m not sure how old this is, it’s been sitting in my mother’s cupboard for an unknown length of time so the quality might not be up to par. Still it’s a pleasent, smooth tea that’s easy to drink early in the morning.

One question, what exactly is supposed to be IN an English Breakfast tea? I’ve heard in various places that it’s supposed to be: pure Keemun, a blend of Ceylon and Assam, a blend of Ceylon, Assam and Darjeeling, pure Ceylon, the list goes on. So which one is the ‘true’ English Breakfast???

I was thinking about that today when I had some of the Twinnings verison. They of course don’t include whats in it, only black tea.
After looking around, I think any blend of all the above is considered English Breakfast. But then what makes it English vrs. Irish? Tre confused, someone needs to answer this…

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
