From Bird Pick Tea & Herb

Originating from Edinburgh, Scotland, English Breakfast Tea is usually a black tea blend that varies from Keemun to Assam Teas. The name English Breakfast Tea derives from a marketing idea by the tea master Drysdale to sell his blend of tea as a “Breakfast Tea” and soon the idea spread out to England where it became popular. With its full-bodied brisk, this tea can be enjoyed by itself, or with milk and sugar to make a delicious drink.

I received a tea bag of this in my last Bird Pick order, which was, as always, Premium Silky Green.

I made this for breakfast so we can whittle down the stack of samples and I don’t regret it. I wasnt sure what was in the bag and CBA to look it up so I erred on the side of caution and treated it as if it were Assam. I used boiling water but kept the steep to four minutes.

It is not a stellar tea, but it was quite drinkable with my cheese toast. I did not add milk or sugar and it was well behaved toward my sensitive tummy. Happily, I now find it is mostly Keemun with some Ceylon. If I needed to buy an inexpensive tea, say to furnish an office for people who don’t really care what tea they drink, I would consdier this a good candidate. It is cheap, it goes down easily even plain, and you can drink ir mindlessly and not be ashamed. And it did satisfy my need for tea when I got to the point that I started adding mustard to my cheese toast. (I start with plain cheese toast and chocolate milk and when the chocolate milk is gone I switch to tea and add a smear of mustard to the toast.)

My love of good Keemun means I wouldn’t order this, as Keemun or Queen Catherine are my breakfast teas of choice, but it isn’t bad.

This tea is a little meh, there is a lot of Keemun in the blend mixed with Ceylon. It also has a sharp note on the palate that leaves the mouth high and dry. It’s upside is that it brews dark like a true breakfast tea.
