Emperor’s Breakfast tea is a black Chine tea originating in the Ming Dynasty.

Delicately twisted whole leaves and golden buds create a beautifully subtle breakfast tea . Careful crafting rather than mass production allows the leaves to retain a unique depth of flavour and complexity. Wonderfully comforting malty notes and delicious caramel flavours are revealed.

Emperor’s Breakfast is the antithesis of modern, industrially produced blends . This single estate tea is carefully grown, harvested and prepared to be the perfect breakfast tea without the need for ANY blending. The tea contains both softness and strength without the need for the commercial blender’s contrivance.
