From The Devotea

A truly old-fashioned English Breakfast. Remember the good old days of the late 1800’s when English Breakfast tea was strong and dark? No? Well, you can find out what it must have been like! A mix of Chinese, Indian and Ceylon teas. Available from US, UK and AU sites on www.the-devotea.com
(This used to be known as “The Devotea’s Premium Hand Blended English Breakfast” in the USA.)

Also having a mini-cup (4oz) of this one, just to get a little more of a taste before I put it in Sil’s box. This may be my favorite English Breakfast out there! It’s really very good! The essence of the individual teas each make their presence known, but they also really balance the cup out nicely. I’ll probably have to add a little of this to my shopping cart for when I’m in the mood for a classic blend.

Sil

Oooooooh

Robert Godden

I’m as excited as Sil is. Perhaps.

Sil

Haha doubt. It lol

Robert Godden

I am imagining the tea on its way to Sil. Perhaps around the neck of a St. Bernard, bounding across the snowy hills.

Sil

haha that would be aaammaaaazing!

Terri HarpLady

Nice imagery, Robert!

TeaBrat

Still a favorite! I enjoyed this one with Gordon Ramsey’s scrambled eggs (hubs found the recipe online and we haven’t had eggs any other way since). Again I added suger and silk milk to this tea and was delighted by hint of malty flavoring I picked up on while drinking it. Best part as it cooled it didn’t get bitter. I’m going to have to order soon as my sample bag is almost empty!!

LiberTEAS

I love Gordon Ramsey.

The Purrfect Cup

He’s a riot and the scrambled eggs are outta this world!

DaisyChubb

He’s so passionate! And dramatic – I love him too. Must try his egg recipe!

Robert Godden

Gordon has a lot to thank me for, then. Imagine if people had to have his scrambled eggs with an inferior tea.

I’m still on a quest to reduce my caffeine consumption at least temporarily… it isn’t helping my sleep and it might also be aggravating some of my muscle tension so I will focus on lower caffeine options today BUT

I wanted to start the morning off with a bang and this is one of my favorite breakfast blends currently. Thanks Devotea for making a blend that is worth waking up for!

Caffeine be damned: Full steam ahead. I like that attitude. Thank you for your comments

A really lovely breakfast blend (man, there are so many!). Does that thing many breakfast blends do where for the very first second it feels deceptively straightforward and familiar, but as the flavors sit and dwell in your mouth nuanced surprises come out. That slow transformation is great because you get the best of both parts—the comfort of familiarity at first and then the interest and complexity in the surprise. It’s deep dark and a little bready, but it also has hints of fruit and even, could I be imagining it, an ever-so-slight floral presence. Very nicely balanced, classic tasting dark heft but also a silkiness and just enough brightness to even things out. I could definitely see drinking this again if I find enough other stuff from The Devotea I like to warrant placing a “real” order.

Thanks for the lovely notes, from us here at Devotea HQ, Adelaide, Australia.
Our US blender does a great job and we are glad you enjoyed the 1910. I hope you have some of our others on hand to taste!

mrmopar

Always nice when a seller posts about someones experience with their tea.

Robert Godden

@mrmopar We think if someone does us the courtesy of writing their thoughts down, the least we can do is acknowledge them. It thrills us that people take the time.

ifjuly

Like mrmopar I’m impressed you stopped by to say hi Robert Godden! Thanks for taking the time to do so. And for your part in allowing me to procure and enjoy this lovely cup of morning tea (it really is remarkably well balanced!). I’m looking forward to trying the others in the black tea sampler pack.

mrmopar

Yep, always extra points in my book Robert.

It’s been awhile since I’ve imbibed a good English Breakfast, and this certainly qualifies. The dry leaves smelled like both Assam and Keemun, but I’m not sure Keemun was used due to how light the liquor brewed. On taste, it was smoky, malty, smooth, and somewhat forest-like on the finish. Not quite Petersham excellence, but still up there.

I am more of an Irish Breakfast type, but I do enjoy a good English Breakfast on occasion. And this IS a good English Breakfast. The brewed leaves are an attractive mix of greens and coppers, with a pleasant fruity scent. The liquor is a robust amber shade with excellent clarity; it tastes bright, smooth and a touch rich/fruity. Even brewing for five full minutes doesn’t make it rough or unpleasant. I haven’t tried adding milk or sugar to it – there is really no need – but I can definitely recommend drinking it alongside a piece of toast with honey, for one of the best breakfasts around.

Quite by chance, I met ‘The Devotea" and he gave me samples of all 6 of his teas. So, they might end up being my first six reviews.
So, I’ve had a cup, so I’m sharing my first impressions.
Overall a good tea. I’d have it at home as a kind of default if I’m in a milk-and-sugar mood. It’s got a sweetness that I think comes from what is probably a strong Keemun base.
I think he’s got the old-fashionedness of this one right. It’s exactly as you’d expect, if your expectations were high.
As I also take price into account – and it’s not a cheap tea – I will award it 4 leaves out of five.

this is a tasty breakfast blend! Sadly i had this ages ago and remember nothing except the fact that i slurped through it super fast. Thankfully though, terri provided lots for me to try so i’ll play with this more and review it again with a better note in future haha

Robert Godden

It’s made for ‘super fast’. We went though a kilo at one tasting event!
