organic black tea (sample)

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.

  1. Love the vanilla

    Posted by Unknown on 6th May 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.

  2. Best Tea I've Ever Had!

    Posted by Heather on 2nd Nov 2010

    I love tea and always try new ones but always gravitate toward more traditional tasting teas. When I tried this, I loved it so much! It has a traditional black tea taste without being too flavored, while having such a more rich and excellent flavor. I buy it in bulk for myself, I can't get enough of it!

  3. French Breakfast

    Posted by Joyce on 27th Sep 2010

    My friend recommended this tea to me. It is her favorite tea and it has become mine as well. I love tea and have a stash of many flavored teas. However, I find myself having a cup of this one almost every morning.
