     Is one of the most popular blended teas and the  most common form of tea in British tea culture.  English Breakfast tea is always a black tea blend, although it is available decaffeinated.  The flavor is strong, full bodied and robust, blended to go well with milk and sugar, in a style traditionally associated with a hearty English breakfast.

     English Breakfast Tea is a traditional blend of black teas from the Assam region of India, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and Kenya in Africa.  The actual blend or ‘recipe’ varies from company to company.  Chinese Keemun may or may not be found in more expensive blends.
     The history of the development of English Breakfast tea is an interesting one. The blend was not developed in England and originally used tea from China.
