Where does English Breakfast Tea come from?

This traditional blend of black tea comes from Assam, Ceylon, and Kenya. It is one of the most loved and popular teas by the British and Irish people. The English Breakfast Tea's strong black tea blend originates from China, India, and Sri Lanka. These teas are mostly cultivated in areas with an elevation of 500 meters from the sea level. These plots of mostly sand and gravel land experience high temperature and has a low amount of water vapor in the air, producing tea leaves with a malty flavor and full-character taste.

Premium blended English Breakfast Teas with Keemun offer a lighter-bodied black tea that comes from Qimen County in the south of the Anhui province of China. This version of the English Breakfast grows between the Yellow Mountains and the Yangtze River.

What does English Breakfast Tea taste like?

A lighter taste emerges from a premium English Breakfast Tea with Keemun that offers stone fruit and a bit of a smoky scent with a gentle, malty, non-tangy taste similar to unsweetened cocoa.

Does English Breakfast Tea have caffeine?

The English Breakfast Tea has medium caffeine content. It contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of black tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 27 to 35 milligrams of caffeine. An equal-sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 to 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinse the tea leaves in extremely hot water to reduce the caffeine content between 25-50%, with only a minor effect on taste.

How is English Breakfast Tea different from Black Tea?

The English Breakfast is a Black Tea blend. However, English Breakfast Tea produces a stronger flavor than regular black tea. The difference between the two depends on from which estate the tea leaves were harvested and the manufacturers who produce the tea product.

How to make English Breakfast Loose Leaf Tea?

Make the best brew by using an electric kettle to boil the water to pour over the loose-leaf tea in a cup or teapot. Boiling the water first from the kettle reduces the time to steep your tea and extracts the flavor better to your delight. More bitter tannin is dissolved in the water as you brew the tea longer. Using the microwave to heat the water is slower, making more dangerous and inferior tea infusions.

Brewing your loose leaf tea in a teapot brings better results than steeping tea from teabags. Loose tea is not ground as fine as the tea in tea bags and it has more room to circulate in the pot. The finer the tea is ground, the more bitter tannin is released. When making loose-leaf tea, use a tea strainer to prevent tea leaves poured into your cup.
