Breakfast tea

Rise, shine and smell the tea

Who doesn’t love a hearty breakfast brew – a steaming cup of black tea with oodles of zeal, stacks of flavour and maybe a little milk. Whichever way you brew it, the first cup is always the sweetest.

What is breakfast tea?

Breakfast teas are basically stronger-than-usual black teas. They can be a single origin leaf, like Assam, or a complex blend, like our Morning Sunshine. Whether you’re a straight up Irish Breakfast devotee or can’t go past an old faithful like English Breakfast, they all have one thing in common – plenty of perk and a carpe diem attitude.
