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.
LovelyBy James from Windsor on 05/14/2019A classic English style tea with head notes of a deep, black, English breakfast tea. 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. Appearance doesn't link to the beautiful flavour - do not be mistaken this is wonderful.Very rich in flavorBy M.s from Durham on 04/16/2019Best breakfast tea I've ever had hands downLovely and strongBy LP from Birmingham on 04/14/2019A lovely, strong black tea.

Teaspoons (2 grams)
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.
