This is English Tealeaves # 1 selling tea and has been for over 14 years. We are proud that it is our own blend that Rob created for Lynne, in 2002, to replace Taylor's of Harrogate's English Breakfast that she thought was the best on the market.
When we started blending English Breakfast we had little experience that turned out to be a big advantage. The cost was not an issue as it was for our own consumption and we wanted the best. Blend # 157 was the end result of a long, sometimes frustrating experience. Trying to find the best teas and then change the percentages to get the special flavor and strength we desired. Being trained as an engineer, Rob was exact on the methodology and very tenacious. See the endorsement from the tea blogger at the bottom of the page.
The high caffeine content of our breakfast tea helps in the morning but this has a full black tea flavor and is not too bitter. Great replacement for coffee in the morning that incidentally Rob drank before starting English Tealeaves. Now he only drinks coffee in restaurants as normally the tea is so bad. Sometimes we take our own personal tea bags and just ask for hot water. Check out personal tea bags in the Brewing Devices section
Even though English Tealeaves Breakfast tea is strong in both flavor and pep, it is not bitter (which will leave you much happier in the morning than if you'd had some bitter cup of coffee).
This is an ideal breakfast tea which can be enjoyed as is, but also creates delicious depth of flavor when adding milk or sugar.Check out the other breakfast teas:
What is an English Breakfast?
A true English Breakfast is a high calorie and fatty breakfast but has to be experienced to appreciate why it is so popular. Just don't have it every morning or you will be gaining weight!
There are many variations around the country but it will usually consist of bacon, eggs, fried bread, tomatoes, sausage and baked beans. Additions are mushrooms and black pudding, which is not for everyone (main ingredient is pigs blood).
With this greasy breakfast you need a drink to help cleanse your palate and English Tealeaves breakfast tea is a flavorful strong tea to give you a break between bites. With or without milk.

I have tried many black teas but this is my daily go-to
I have been drinking Lynne's favorite exquisite blend of tea (English Breakfast Tea) for 10 years. I think that alone says a lot!

This English Breakfast is so good I don't need to put milk in it to take away the bitterness.

Tealeaves own blend of English Breakfast is absolutely the best - its not too strong - just right with a little cream - Heaven!
Rose Aurora, Colorado
This English Breakfast tea is very good. It has a very good flavor.

A good infuser makes it easy to prepare tea and this is our favorite:
Fine mesh large size infuser with a drip tray that can be used for a cover to keep the tea hot. This is the best infuser for large mug infusing as it sits well on the top of most mugs (12 to 18 oz) and also many 32 oz 48 cup size teapots. We have used them in the Tealeaves Cafe for over 12 years and the majority are still being used as they clean so well. The fine mesh it great for fine teas and herbals like Rooibos.
