Breakfast teas to refresh your morning routine

What makes the perfect morning drink? It should help you wake up and taste good enough that it's motivation to get you out of bed.

Breakfast teas tick all the boxes. We blend them using strong tea that naturally contains a gentle serving of caffeine to help energise you for the day ahead, minus the jitters. Then, the tea gets mixed with ingredients that either make you feel great, or simply taste delicious.

If you want to mix up how you wake up – these are the best teas to start with. All will boost your energy levels (thanks caffeine!), so pick the flavours that suit your taste best.

English Breakfast

Tastes: robust and hearty black tea

Brisk, full of character and probably the most well-known of all tea, it is a blend of broken-leaf teas that create a robust and hearty cup. Serve it with milk and sweetener or as it is.

Wakey Wakey

Tastes: herbal and berry green tea

A supercharged mix of yerba mate, goji berries, guarana, peppermint and green tea. This is the perfect morning brew for green tea fans who want an extra boost of energy from yerba mate. Serve it hot or iced.

A lighter option, this black tea is medium bodied with a hint of bergamot. It is fragrant and usually best without milk. Try it with a squeeze of lemon!

A caffeine-free option is this smooth, rich black tea – decaffeinated using a natural process. Slightly fruity with malty notes, the CO2 extraction means we can cut the caffeine without compromising on flavour.
