Description

A traditional, strong, loose leaf English Breakfast, the blend reformulated for us by Rare Tea Hunter Phil Mumby. A small-leaf, high-quality Assam tea from the Hajua garden blending with two stunning teas from Kenya from the Kaimosi™ estate and Kapchorua™ estate, plus a small proportion of China's traditional Yunnan Dian Hong to give it the Canton Tea Co twist. It's smooth, brisk, fresh, robust - exactly what a traditional EB should be.

This tea is also available in loose leaf.

Phil describes how: 'There is an art to blending tea. It normally works best when a blend is built around a single ‘hero’ component, with other teas then brought in to complement and balance... When creating this blend, my starting point was to pin down the flavour profile that I wanted. Traditional English Breakfast, despite its name, is a tea that is drunk at all times of day, as a refreshing pick-me-up, something not too far away from ‘normal tea’, but higher in quality and with the key attributes magnified.It needs to be refreshing, smooth but invigorating, with a clean flavour and satisfying aftertaste. I wanted it to work well even if taken without milk. Once I had decided this, I knew what I wanted for my hero tea, if I could get it: Kenya Kaimosi GFBOP'.

  • Hmm

    by BOB on 5th of June

    I had canton tea as it was being used at a Michelin starred restaurant /accommodation we used and i loved it - but this didnt seem to have the same strong flavour - maybe i ordered the wrong one but was slightly underawed.

    This really is a fabulous morning wake me up - strong and robust with no tannic after taste - even my friends think I've made a pot from leaves! (and I keep it my secret!) ,,, The Secret of the Pyramids!
