As most of us might already know, most of the tea cultivated on planet earth are sold by wholesale distributors to retailers of every shape and sort. As a consumer, I feel like sometimes I have to go on a 007 recon mission to find the origin of a tea I like. What happens if the retailer of my favorite tea goes belly up, and I think I’ll never be able to buy my favorite tea again? Unbeknownst to me, that retailer repackaged my same favorite tea and resold it under a creative name making it seem like it was distinctly their own? If I can find out the wholesale distributor, I feel like I’ve lengthened the buying life of a dearly loved tea blend as a consumer. I still have to buy from a retailer, but if they go out of business, I can just search for another retailer instead of falsely mourning the death of my favorite tea. So here it is. English Breakfast tea, an unknown blend of teas in tea bags distributed by St. James Teas and repackaged in a pretty tin by the London Transport Museum and titled, “London Underground” English Breakfast tea. Is this tea out of this world? Nope, but let me tell you, for as much as I push for loose leaf tea, this pre-bagged one is currently doing the job while I am caring for my mom in the hospital during Thanksgiving week. I still boil the water, and take an oversized mug and gauge about 2 cups worth of water over two tea bags. It makes a nice strong breakfast tea with a very dark coppery color, with no bitter taste. For me whole milk and sugar are required. The taste is what I would expect of a “right in the pocket” authentic english breakfast tea. No surprises, no fancy updates. A blended taste that has been standardized and has withstood the test of time in tea years.

I hope your mum gets better soon.

Seconded. Happy Thanksgiving to you both.

Best wishes for health from me as well. I agree with you on the problem. It is exacerbated by the fact that tea varies seasonally. There are a few places that sell teas and name the plantations they come from (single-sourced teas). I wonder if that is a better option.

Happy thanksgiving to you and well wishes and prayers for your mom. Not exactly a fun place to be, I’m sorry.

Marie

Thanks everyone for the well wishes for my mom. She’s improving little by little, however we’re still waiting to see if she’ll need surgery or not. Just staying positive and trying to find as many moments to laugh as much as we can.

Awhile ago my husband came home with a gift for me from his boss, it was the Trio from st. James products, They were sooooo cute, they look like little buses and one thats a map. They are in cute lil containers, it took me a while to get try them but OMG when i did, it was like a wave from good tasting!! I couldn’t believe how yummy it was and i was just letting it waste away in my cupboard!! but unfortunately he bought it from London. I am far away from London like Ontario Canada. but then i thought, hey the internet should have a way of getting it too me!! oh thank god the internet is everywhere! it makes getting and ordering items that much easier!!
I love the English Breakfast Tea!!! and I want more!! L
