English breakfast tea is a traditional blend of black teas, usually Kenyan, Ceylon, and Assam teas. It is stronger and more robust than green tea, and the strong flavor wakes you up. It’s a very popular type of blended tea, especially among tea lovers in the UK and Ireland.
Because English breakfast tea is rich, robust, and full-bodied, it goes very well with milk and sugar. It’s a perfect brew to go with an English breakfast. It’s also great for making iced tea lattes.
Who Is It For?
This tea is great for those waking up in the morning, and who needs a caffeine boost. However, it’s also terrific for other times of the day. If your energy levels are flagging, a cup of English breakfast tea should perk you right up.
This doesn’t contain any calories or cholesterol, so it’s very healthy. It contains only 30 to 60 mg of caffeine per cup. That’s enough to wake you up, without frazzling your nerves.
A perfect cup of English breakfast tea typically requires 2 to 3 grams of tea per cup of water. While the 2 grams may be strong enough, 3 grams is usually better.
Boil your water, but let it then cool down to 203 degrees F. However, some particular blends may need a lower temperature.
Steep for 3 to 5 minutes. A longer steep generally extracts more caffeine and a more prominent flavor. The perfect English breakfast tea, however, should be only slightly astringent. It should not be unpleasantly bitter. You can add milk to enhance the flavor, and not to cover the bitterness of the tea.
