Origin: Yunnan, China
Flavor Profile: Smooth, full bodied, malty, and classically brisk.
Tea Story: This is the Samovar version of English Breakfast- a tea you can count on time and again. Wake up with this tea like so many of our ex-coffee-drinking tea converts do.
Breakfast Blend teas were created as the signature blend of a particular tea company. A “Breakfast Blend” is a blend of tea from a company’s tea gardens that is blended to achieve a uniform and reliable flavor season after season- regardless of weather conditions that might effect a tea’s flavor. At the beginning of the 19th century, some tea sellers were even creating tea blends that best suited a town or city’s local water supply.
Samovar’s Breakfast Blend is a blend of Dian Hong style tea from Yunnan, China. This means that it is only top-quality tea with whole leaves and a high content of fine golden leaf buds: “golden tips.”
Samovarian Poertry: Kindle clarity. Banish stupor. Full malty flavor with delicate dryness.
Food Pairings: Serve Samovar Breakfast Blend alongside your oatmeal, waffle, pancakes, or toast and eggs- it is a breakfast blend after all! At the tea lounge we serve it with our English-style Afternoon Tea Service: scone with clotted cream and jam, quiche, and fresh, seasonal fruit. You may
