For those who like their morning cuppa full-bodied, rich and packed with flavour, we have crafted a stronger alternative to our classic English Breakfast to give your taste buds a wake-up call. We chose tea from Sri Lanka for its crisp taste and distinctive aroma, blending it with the famously malty tea of Kenya. The result is a gutsy brew with a lingering aftertaste – it's delicious with a splash of milk in the morning, served with a slice of buttered toast.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Took me back to Sri LankaBy Bristol tea drinker from Bristol on 07/06/2019This is the nicest.tea I have.had.since.being in a tea.plantation in Sri Lanka and buying bags to bring home. Clean and refreshing taste.Great Morning ReviverBy The Durham Dunker from Durham on 06/26/2019Excellent brew, perfect for post dog walk pick me up.A nice medium strength teaBy Alex from Nottingham on 06/23/2019After having this twice as a taster I have really enjoyed it. Compared to the Assam 2nd Flush which is a fantastic tea, this Chelsea breakfast tea is clean tasting without the need for milk because of its medium strength.
Goes very well with a light cake in the afternoon as well as breakfasts!Delicious!By JessCat from Reading on 06/10/2019I hadn't had a decent cup of tea all week till this brew touched my lips!

Dry and crisp body notes chased by tail notes of earl grey and slight hint of citrus.Surprisingly pleasantBy Mummy G from Norwich on 04/28/2019Wasn't expecting to like this too much as it's black tea and I often find it too strong, but it made a great cup of tea for both myself who likes it quite weak and my sister who likes it strong.Strong perfect flavourBy Jon from Wolves on 04/22/2019I am surprised by the underlying strength of this tea.

Origin: Sri Lanka
Coffee plantations were originally Sri Lanka's main economic resource, and it wasn't until the 1870s that a sudden blight devastated the coffee plantations and allowed tea to take centre stage. Today, "Ceylon" tea – known by the country's former colonial name – is famed for its clean, brisk taste.
Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
