For our organic Breakfast Blend Tea, we combine flavorful Ceylon from Sri Lanka and full-bodied, dark Indian Assam for a rich and invigorating blend. Great with a splash of milk. Fair Trade Certified.
By the 1700s tea at breakfast was part of the English lifestyle. The prototype for English Breakfast was developed over a hundred years ago by a Scottish Teamaster in Edinburgh, and marketed simply as “Breakfast Tea”. Today breakfast tea has become a favorite of tea drinkers worldwide and is the tea most often enjoyed during English High Tea.
Our Organic Ceylon is from the Dimbulla region which has tea estates at elevations of 5,000 to 6,000 feet and seasonal monsoons. The teas are harvested December through February. This tea is characterized by long, chestnut colored leaves and rich taste.
Our Organic Assam Black tea comes from the Sewpur Tea Estate in the Tinsukia district of Assam. This tea has distinctive malty flavor, full-body and a warm, reddish brown color in the cup.
Both teas selected for our Organic Breakfast blend are certified by the renowned “Institute for MarketEcology” in Switzerland, which is an IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) member, recognized worldwide.
