The Story Behind The Tea

Back in the 1800's, a certain type of tea was gaining such popularity in England it gained the name 'English Breakfast'. The first version of this tea is believed to have originated in the Bohea hills of northern Fujian Province in China but it wasn't until it became a staple export from the United States to England that it was given its name. For English Breakfast to be called English Breakfast, the tea has to have a specific colour, flavour & aroma. 


For centuries, this tea has been a staple of the British breakfast routine. Despite the popularity of other tea types increasing, English Breakfast remains one of the most consumed teas in the west.
