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.)

Oh Pajama Day!
Feeling grateful for a full day off with Tony, for my sinuses clearing, for a tasty breakfast, & for tea. My lungs & kidneys are still messed up, but improving (I absolutely hate Florida, I’m never going there again), but I’m feeling a lot better otherwise, & I think another week of going to the salt room & drinking straight cranberry juice & I’ll be back to normal.
Meanwhile, I’m grateful to be able to taste things again, especially tea.
This is one of my favorite EBs.

I’m trying to find a salt room since you talked about it. I think I would find it helpful. I’m glad you’re feeling better.

Terri HarpLady

I’ll ask Clay (the owner of ours) if he knows of any in your area. He originally built it because his daughter has asthma. They’ve been able to reduce her meds, etc, so he opened it up for the public. I’m going 3 times a week right now, & it always helps me.

TheTeaFairy

Yes me too, glad you’re starting to feel better.

MzPriss

I’ve been googling and I found one guy doing a “Go Fund Me” to make one but haven’t found an actual one yet.

Terri HarpLady

If I ever come to Austin, I want to go here:

Here’s the list of US salt rooms, posted on st louis salt room’s website, along with a ton of info about halo therapy

MzPriss

Yeah, Salt & Time is pretty amazing. And yes, that was the place I found and sadly they are not open :(

Come to Austin! But not in the summer…

Amariel

I have never heard of a salt room…I’ll have to look it up. As for Florida, I lived there for 30 years. I’m done with it barring visits to my friends and family.

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.

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.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
Robert Godden

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.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

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.

Breakfast tea. Nice bold malty, something I would love to drink in the morning. It’s my 3rd tea fr Devotea courtesy of Terry HarpLady. I have to mention that all the teas I tried fr them are very finely crafted quality teas.
Thank you so much Terri for a chance to try these wonderful teas.
PS Two Tigers is still a leader. 1910 is a runner up
PS1 Sil, it does have some smoky notes, probably from Keemun.

We’re glad you are enjoying the teas, and enjoying your thoughts. And yes, the last point is correct!

Mmmmmm this one is quite good! Terri suggested this one last night, so I picked it as one of he the morning teas today. For some reasoning I’m getting smokey notes, which no one else seems to have. That being said, it IS a bold, delicious cup and I’m happy that I’ve got more. Hahaha

Terri HarpLady

I think this has become my favorite Devotea tea. :)

Robert Godden

Great to hear that you liked and Terri, it has been noted!
