Traditional English Breakfast Sample

Robust, deep and rounded, carries milk perfectly.
A traditional, strong, loose leaf English Breakfast, the blend reformulated for us by Rare Tea Hunter Phil Mumby. A small-leaf, high-quality Assam tea from the Khongea estate blended with two stunning teas from Kenya from the Kaimosi™ estate and Kapchorua™ estate, plus a small proportion of China's traditional Yunnan Dian Hong to give it the Canton Tea Co twist. It's smooth, brisk, fresh, robust - exactly what a traditional English Breakfast tea should be.

Our first tea available in a 1kg bag - for those addicted to a proper morning cuppa.

Phil describes how: 'There is an art to blending tea. It normally works best when a blend is built around a single ‘hero’ component, with other teas then brought in to complement and balance... When creating this blend, my starting point was to pin down the flavour profile that I wanted. Traditional English Breakfast, despite its name, is a tea that is drunk at all times of day, as a refreshing pick-me-up, something not too far away from ‘normal tea’, but higher in quality and with the key attributes magnified.It needs to be refreshing, smooth but invigorating, with a clean flavour and satisfying aftertaste. I wanted it to work well even if taken without milk. Once I had decided this, I knew what I wanted for my hero tea, if I could get it: Kenya Kaimosi GFBOP'.
