MORE ABOUT ENGLISH BREAKFAST: Today the habit of tea drinking is inexorably linked to England despite the fact that the British were fairly late on the tea scene, in historical terms. Ironically the first mention of tea in English literature is a translation of a Dutchman‟s travels to the East. Tea was first brought to England via Holland on Dutch ships. As tea grew to become an „in‟ beverage, the British government became quite incensed that a nation as tiny as the Netherlands could control the shipment of tea to the UK. In 1651 the British government passed the Navigation Acts, which forbade the importation of any products on non-British ships. Traders and Dutchmen, being resourceful, continued the trade in the usual manner but for one little wrinkle – the tea was transshipped in Holland onto British ships! Early in British life tea was known as a health beverage and claimed all sorts of curative powers. In the 1650‟s, Garway‟s Coffee House proclaimed that: “Tea makes the body active and lusty. Tea is declared to be the most wholesome; preserving perfect health until extreme Old Age” Afternoon tea was the invention of Anna, wife of the seventh Duke of Bedford. At the time custom dictated only two planned meals per day: a hearty breakfast and a late evening dinner. Anna in an effort to ease the midday “sinking feeling”, began instructing her servants to prepare tea and cakes in the late afternoon. Thus began a fashionable habit, which still exists today. Britain is steeped in tea history. Think of: High Tea, the Brown Betty, American War of Independence, Opium Wars, The Boxer Rebellion, Clipper Ship races from Fuzhou, China to Portsmouth UK, the Earl of Grey, English Breakfast etc. etc.

    I like to keep these stocked in office as I am a little too fussy about my tea. Love the aroma and caffeine content. As always vendor was spot on with their delivery.

    It’s has a good and strong taste, considering my most friends do not like tea without milk. They were also hooked to it. Few of them added lemon to. This black tea and to my surprise it tastes real good.

    A heady mix of Assam Black Tea & Darjeeling Black Tea, which make for a strong yet relaxing flavor for all black tea lovers.

    It comes in a convenient resalable pack and all teas from Tea Treasure are a value for money as each spoon can be brewed 2-3 times without losing its flavor.

    Amazing quality & tastes very different. Something that you would have never tasted before. Tea treasure brings so many meanings to a simple “tea”, I think this brand is doing amazing & helping us explore hundreds of variety of teas that we never knew existed!

    Being a fusion of Darjeeling tea and Assam Black tea, this tea has a strong, sapid taste. The taste in particular is attributed to relax jangling nerves and soothes and induces a calming persona.

    Emelda Marshak (verified owner)

    I love a bit of bitterness of herbs and the strong striking effect in tea. And this became just my favorite. I don’t like sweet or mild aroma and this tea passed on it. Really perfect for after morning or evening breakfast to detox your mind and throat. If you are someone who loves zesty flavors. You will love this.

    Jospeh Howell (verified owner)

    I and my colleagues like it. It has a very mild flavor. If you put it in boiling water and drink it after a few minutes, it tastes like you are drinking hot water only. After taking the water off the flame, add the tea and let it brew for 7-10 minutes if you want to get proper aroma.

    English breakfast Tea falls in between the strong and dark quality of Assam and the delicate and mellow quality of Darjeeling. I love it with a teeny dash of milk and honey.

    This tea makes one feel ready and able to face whatever morning comes along and not merely survive, but triumphant! It might sound corny, but I bet there is not a tea lover out there that doesnt need some tea in their beloved repertoire to fill those shoes. I dont hesitate to say, the shoe fits Cuppa Tea!
