According to the catalog, British Breakfast, "is a robust blend of quality black teas, hearty enough to make any Brit smile in the morning. This is no mass-marketed blend, but a savory mixture of select China, India, Ceylon and Kenya leaves that sets a new teaste standard for this classic beverage."
I'm not used to savory as an adjective for tea, but I would agree about the robust part! It has a delightful aroma smelling of pure tea leaves. The color of the brew is a rich, pleasing one. It has a clean, fresh taste with a pleasant aftertaste.
This is one I'd recommend if you like black tea, but want to try something a little new. It's really good. It would make a good morning tea with a bit of a kick to it for those of us who may need a little help getting going in the mornings, that said, I'd probably buy the decaf version myself as caffeine and pregnancy aren't a good mix. It would stand up well to a bit of milk and sugar, if you were so inclined.
Of course, it would also work as a good mid-afternoon pick up with a plate of scones. Mmm...
I went over to their website at Republicoftea.com and found out this interesting anecdote about the tea:
"This blend is our version of the popular blend called “English Breakfast” which is a name tea marketers created to describe Britain’s popular morning blend. Usually this blend has a substantial amount of China teas as opposed to “Irish Breakfast” which has dominance of India teas. "
I had wondered what the difference was, as I knew they were both black tea blends. We learn something new each day! Why don't you take a break, brew a cup of tea, and relax and stay awhile?
