English Breakfast – Solstice Tea Traders

Scroll down and look at the description. A bit disappointing right?  Especially considering how nice and earthy the flavor is. Honestly, I tend to not drink many Irish or English breakfast teas because I tend to stick to the greener side of teas but it is good to try the ‘darker side’ particularly when you savor a clean flavor like this one. Clean seems like it might be a weird word to use to describe tea but honestly that was what my first thought was.  Perhaps pure would be better? Even the color of the brewed tea is somewhat more Read More

Highly Recommended. . .English Breakfast from Pinky Out Tea

Remember?” So I took the hint and brewed up a small pot of English Breakfast from Pinky Out Tea, which was a mistake. I should have grabbed the larger tea pot! The tea is robust and gentle all at the same time. This isn’t one of those smack you in the face English Breakfast blends but more of a gentle wave that provides flavor throughout the cuppa. The first sip gives Read More

Maharajah Collection Organic English Breakfast from Hope and Glory

I remember the first full day of my study abroad semester in London like it was yesterday (instead of 2009– wait, am I getting old? Don’t answer that). After a sleepless trans-Atlantic flight and a lazy day of getting acclimated, we were invited to a proper cream tea at a local historic hotel. My love of tea had begun long before my international journey, but it was fairly exclusive to basic herbals and the occasional green– every time I tried to drink straight black tea, I got this stomach-turning ick and would set it aside until it turned cold and Read More

Maharajah Collection Organic English Breakfast from Hope & Glory may be one of the sturdiest black teas that isn’t technically loose that I have ever tasted!
