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
Samovar's is dedicated to preserving the simplicity and integrity of the tea traditions and inspiring people to practice peace through drinking tea.
