I don’t know why I bought this, really. I couldn’t decide if the name was cute or silly but it smelled pretty good and I could use a go-to breakfast blend.

So, it’s not morning anymore but this is my first cup of the day. I had rather a rough morning and would enthusiastically prefer not to go to work for the evening, but I have to get ready and I’m hoping this will help.

This is pretty good. Bold, astringent, rich. I’m not drinking it with milk right now but probably will next time. That is more because I always feel like I need milk to make it officially a breakfast tea. This is good without. I can’t remember what I was told was in this blend and it’s a bit strange that the description is so vague, but I think I recall a mention of Ceylon and Nilgiri among others. Who knows.

Anyway, a solid breakfast blend. I will probably try out a different one when I’m done with this but I think I’ll quite enjoy what I have.

I think soon we will be able to organize a round the world trip just with breakfast mixes named after countries. English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast, Yorkshire (not a country, ok) Breakfast. I think Mariage Freres makes French Breakfast and American Breafkast AND Shanghai Breakfast AND Russian Breakfast. An italian company makes Italian Breakfast. TWG makes Singapore Breakfast. I would not have been able to resist Canadian Breakfast either! And wonder what else is left.

That’s too funny! Several results on here come up for Canadian Breakfast, and a few for American Breakfast (including one by Mariage Freres). Not that anyone needs another excuse to collect tea, but it would be interesting to see how many countries one could find!

A very tempting idea – I swear I am tempted by the French Breakfast ( I must start to admit to myself that my tastes in tea are somewhat frenchified!)) though never saw it for sale. I did see Italian Breakfast for sale the other day and was tempted.
