A blend of black tea leaves to create a familiar and refreshing brew, perfect for early mornings. This blend uses a variety of leaf sizes that hold together well as a dry leaf but deliver their differing qualities in the cup. Small Assam gives this tea its strong and malty taste, with small Ceylon added to provide colour and a full bodied flavour. It has the ability to wake and stimulate the metabolism and aid the digestion of a full English breakfast. This tea is usually taken with milk, but also works well on its own.
Measure 1-2 tbsp of tea, or use one tea bag, per 250ml cup of freshly boiled water, cooled to 95°C. Steep the tea for 3-5 minutes; a longer steep will release more caffeine and a stronger flavour.
