  1. A tasty, brisk breakfast brew!

    I usually wouldn't choose an English Breakfast myself, but this particular one couldn't be better. The leaves are smaller, almost like a CTC leaf, but I think that is what an English Breakfast tea should be. No weak breakfast teas for me, please. I certainly would love to drink this during breakfast! I steeped up a teaspoon and a quarter and the brew was mighty dark -- not too dark to be astringent though. The flavor is a great example of what to expect from this type: malty and sweet, yet bold but not bitter. The first cup tasted like tomato soup, which led me to believe that it was an assam, so I wasn't surprised to see the origin for this tea on Octavia's website as being Assam, India. I believe an English Breakfast shouldn't only be from Assam (a typical blend is also from Kenya and Ceylon, according to Wikipedia) but this is such a great tea, I won't complain much. A kick in the morning and very tasty!

  2. Perfect breakfast tea

    This has been my favorite daily black tea for a while now, and so I order the bulk bag. It's a little lighter tasting than the Irish Breakfast and has a beautiful amber color. I do like strong black tea and this one is delicious without tasting bitter. I brew it in a large porcelain pot the traditional way and it's enjoyed by the whole family.
