DESCRIPTION

FRENCH BREAKFAST
organic black tea (tin)

Transport yourself to a sidewalk café in Paris with this luxurious, full-bodied cup. Destined to become a classic, French Breakfast is a rich, bright black tea with notes of vanilla and caramel. This enchanting, flavorful tea is made from a traditional, antioxidant-rich black tea base enhanced with rose petals and the decadent, creamy flavor of fresh-cut vanilla bean.  An Octavia Tea favorite!

BREWING TIPS: For the smoothest flavor, allow water to cool to 180°F after boiling and steep 1 tablespoon of tealeaves per 12 ounces of water for only 2-2.5 minutes. Increase the steeping time or strength slightly if you wish to add milk.

BREAKFAST TEAS: French Breakfast is an invigorating accompaniment to your morning routine, or at any time of the day. Compared to other breakfast blends, English Breakfast is more traditional with its classic, bright flavor and brisk astringency, Irish Breakfast is the strongest tea with a bold, deep flavor and a hint of smoke, and French Breakfast is richer and more luxurious, with a malty, dessert-like vanilla flavor. Real, fresh cut pieces of vanilla bean make this tea truly special. Vanilla bean comes from the orchid plant and is considered a precious commodity throughout the world. Vanilla has an ancient history in Aztec medicine as an aphrodisiac.

NET WT (per tin): 2.65 oz (75 g)

  1. My Favorite Tea!

    Posted by Unknown on 31st Dec 2014

    I am a huge tea drinker, I use all loose leaf teas. French Breakfast is bar none my favorite blend. I have had the blend from several different companies and Octavia's blend does not dissapoint. This is a delicious smooth tea that is great for any occasion.


  2. The start of my tea journey

    Posted by Brose on 21st May 2014

    So I am new to drinking REAL tea although I always did love my flavored white and green teas from whole foods but I actually get a discount through my employer to buy from Octavia so here I am .. I bought ten samples and on my first which is this French breakfast and I am giving 5 stars because it is amazing . So many different aspects of flavor it is the perfect blend! I hope I haven't set myself up by drinking the best first but I have a feeling that's not the case. I am in love with my little tea pot too!


  3. Love the vanilla

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Apr 2014

    This has became my weekend breakfast tea of choice. I love the vanilla carmel taste. I have also used it in a tea scone recipe.

    As I came to write this review, I just noticed the brewing tips. I didn't realize it suggested boiling then letting sit until 180F.
