This is my everyday tea. I love the Assam Gold Rain more, but I chose this for my everyday tea since it is cheaper. (I drink about a quart a day instead of coffee.) I like it strong, so I do 1.5 tsp per cup. I add sugar too, about a tsp per cup.

I’ve tried several “English Breakfast” teas, and I’ve like all of them. This one, however, was surprisingly underwhelming. It took a lot of very hot water, and several minutes more than recommended to get a somewhat flavorful cup of tea out of these leaves. Perhaps my lot came from an old and stale batch? The experience was disappointing.

I really like a good English Breakfast tea and was looking forward to having this one from Teavana. Unfortunately, it is bitter and has some kind of weird metallic aftertaste. I’ve tried adding sugar and cream and it still doesn’t help. Today I mixed it with the White Avurvedic Chai from Teavana and added some sugar and that redeemed it somewhat. Will look elsewhere for a good quality English Breakfast.

I finally gave up on this – pitched it all on Friday! Fortunately it’s one of the cheapest teas Teavana sells so I’m not out much money ;-)

Oh yes. This is good stuff. Shamefully, I drank this with non-dairy creamer. Well, I take that back. We don’t have milk in my office, so I had to make due with what I had. It’s still good with creamer instead of milk.

I made a point of trying out Teavanna’s English Breakfast, and it’s not too bad. Certainly not as robust as I like my standard black teas, but it’s still got a good flavor to it.

Used an extra teaspoon of this today; made for a bracing, full cup of tea. Robust but not too bitter. I brew mine for just over three minutes. Also good with a splash of milk.

This has assam nilgiri,and ceylon black teas. You can see the black tea and I’t smells strong. I steeped this a short steeping time. And the taste I’s a good tasting black tea. I was afraid of the assam knocking my socks off. So It’s your choice to steep longer or not.

Picked this up at the store the other day. It was super cheap ($4.50/50g!!) and I’m lacking in black with milk options at home. Worth the risk even though EBs are such wild cards for me. I figured if it wasn’t great, I’d make iced tea with it. Fortunately, it is surprisingly good. Malty, bready, a little sweet on its own. I hope they keep this around for awhile, as I haven’t seen any cheaper alternatives (that I actually enjoy this much)
I’m not sure if this is what I bought though. The sticker just says “English Breakfast” with nothing about high grown or royal etc (the other Teavana EB out there).
Bah, what do I care… I just scammed them. Well not really. Let me have this… Heh.

I bought a lot of this a couple months ago, and kind of forgot that I had it. It’s not super strong, but strong enough. It’s so smooth and enjoyable to drink. Now that I’ve had straight Nilgiri tea, I can taste the Nilgiri in this one…mixes nicely with the Assam to create a balanced full-bodied tea that is not bitter at all. This is a good one for days like today when I get to sleep late…I’ll still rely on the Assam teas for all the early days. :P Happy Saturday, everyone!
