Canton English Breakfast Tin

The UK's favourite - a classic English tea with New York roots.
The first English Breakfast Tea was created in New York in the 1800s by our namesake, the original Canton Tea Co. Their black tea was a runaway success, replicated by all other tea companies. Our superior house blend has now been reformulated by Rare Tea Hunter Phil Mumby and is full of complex flavours. Neat, wiry leaves of Assam from the Khongea estate provides the backbone of this tea, with richness from our own Feng Qing Yunnan black, a smooth creamy character from Ceylon black from the Doomgastawala estate, and a crisp, brisk, toasty bite from Rwandan black from the Rukeri estate. A very versatile tea, a quick brew is delicious without milk, but it can happily carry milk if steeped a little longer and stronger.

This product is also available in foil bags.

At the beautiful Hotel Endsleigh in Devon, the Canton English Breakfast tea was perfect - full bodied, refreshing, the best way to start the day. The other guests agreed. Canton (new) customer, Catherine.

Simply the best!


/ 5

This is the nicest English Breakfast leaf tea I have ever had and will become a regular purchase once I have exhausted current stocks from other suppliers. A really nice tin caddy too. Relatively slow to brew in the Piao I infuser so take care on your first brew.

Great little tin

Great little tin which means I can get more in the cupboard. Wish you could order stickers separately or at least not have them stuck to your packets of tea when you order them.
