English Breakfast is a full-bodied black tea blend that goes well with a traditional English breakfast. The original cup was made with black Keemun tea from Anhui province in China. Across many generations, plenty of different interpretations of this famous blend have been made. Our English Breakfast stays close to the classic. Made from top quality black Keemun tea, prized for its rich, slightly smoky flavor and perfectly 'on point' astringency. Balanced, very honeyed aroma. May be enjoyed plain or with a drop of milk. This fine example of an English Breakfast remains one of Adagio's most popular varieties.

Fresh From Origin

The English required a tea strong enough to wash down their beloved Fry-up, a typical morning fare of fried bacon, sausage, mushroom, eggs, and tomato. The rich but refreshing black teas of Keemun were found to be an ideal beverage for all this cholesterol. English Breakfast was also instrumental in the Monty Python spam sketch (waitress: 'Well, there's egg and bacon; egg, sausage, and bacon; egg and spam; egg, bacon, and spam...')... which thereafter gave annoying and unsolicited emails their nickname.
