Although China seems to be primarily known for its green teas, I think it also produces some of the best black teas in the world. I’ve enjoyed English Breakfast and Irish Breakfast teas very much in the morning. I was curious to learn how Chinese Breakfast tea stacks up against them.

I brewed this blend for five minutes at 212 degrees, the end of the range specified on the package. This produced a tea with a maple syrup color. The aroma was similar to that of European breakfast teas.

The flavor was quite strong and malty. The aftertaste was just a tad on the sweet side. Perhaps that was the influence of the cacao ingredient, although there was no discernible chocolate flavor.

World Market recommends that you use one to two teaspoons of tea leaves per cup. To compromise, I loaded six teaspoons for four cups. This made the flavor slightly astringent. I will use my normal one teaspoon per cup next time.

This is a nice tasting breakfast tea. It’s the type of tea that I enjoy most in the morning to turbo charge my slumbering senses.

I totally agree! All my favourite blacks are Chinese.

Same here! I drink almost exclusively Chinese tea when it comes to black and green. Oolongs may be Chinese or Taiwanese, of course! A favorite tea from Teavivre was their Yun Nan Dian Hong. Wonder if this is the same tea?

The Chinese teas are great stuff! I just sent off for an order of several Teavivre black teas. I also like Rishi’s Earl Grey, another fine Chinese tea! Thanks for checking in, Angrboda and ashmanra!

I got this from a friend a while back, but I’ve been so busy trying other teas that I’ve been putting this one off (mostly because I was pretty sure I would love it).

I brewed it for the first time Sunday, and I think I’ve had four or five cups since? It’s really good, especially with a little bit of honey stirred in. It tastes pretty much exactly as described, malty with very subtle chocolatey hints. And it definitely wakes you up!

This tea brews up a lovely amber color and has a subtle malt flavor. Hints of earthyness add to the boquet. Overall a good cup, but not the best Yunan Provence tea I’ve tasted.

I think the company’s description of this tea is correct, and it is absolutely delicious! I love black teas with notes of cacao, and this one definitely has that.

China is the land of green, I know, but I love the blacks. This was a gift from a co-worker, and it’s keeping me wide-eyed and alert during my Christmas shift today. Brews up dark and hearty, with a real caffeine kick.
