In the mid nineteenth century, Britain began to import tea from India, and tea merchants worked on converting British consumers over to the new Indian teas, for example Assam and Ceylon. Tea companies such as Twinings created blends of Chinese and Indian black teas. Over time British tea drinkers made this switch and started preferring the brisker flavor of Indian tea over the milder Chinese tea.
Our house breakfast blend is Lizzy's Breakfast Supreme, three types of black tea plus a touch of oolong. It's currently our best-selling loose leaf tea. In addition, we carry an English Breakfast tea which is a blend of two organic Indian teas (an Assam from northern India and a Nilgiri from southern India). For those who like a brisk black tea, the Irish Breakfast is a great option.
We recommend trying the various blends straight as well as with milk and sweetener to see which you like better.
