From Octavia Tea

Our traditional English Breakfast is a single-estate Assam tea from India with a bold, bright, full-bodied flavor. Rich in protective antioxidants, this classic tea is the perfect companion for early mornings.

English Breakfast yields a rich, redish-brown infusion and has an assertive, well-balanced flavor with lots of body. If you like a strong, classic black tea, this one’s for you. (NET WT 3.5 oz)

Thanks again for the samples, Octavia Tea! I usually wouldn’t choose an English Breakfast myself, but this particular one couldn’t be better. The leaves are smaller, almost like a CTC leaf, but I think that is what an English Breakfast tea should be. No weak breakfast teas for me, please. I certainly would love to drink this during breakfast! I steeped up a teaspoon and a quarter and the brew was mighty dark — not too dark to be astringent though. The flavor is a great example of what to expect from this type: malty and sweet, yet bold but not bitter. The first cup tasted like tomato soup, which led me to believe that it was an assam, so I wasn’t surprised to see the origin for this tea on Octavia’s website as being Assam, India. I believe an English Breakfast shouldn’t only be from Assam (a typical blend is also from Kenya and Ceylon, according to Wikipedia) but this is such a great tea, I won’t complain much. A kick in the morning and very tasty!

I finished the can of this tea I had long ago, so I can’t give a real in-depth review of it. I do remember it being delicious, though.
