What is English Breakfast Tea? Despite its name, the first English Breakfast Tea was created in New York in the nineteenth century. An article in the trade magazine "Journal of Commerce" explains how Richard Davies, an English apothecary from Hull, founded a small tea company in New York and, in 1843, made a new mix of teas using China Congou, Flowery Pekoe, and Pouchong. He called it English Breakfast and sold it at 50 cents per pound. The public apparently loved it and as demand grew, other retailers created their own version of this now world-famous blend.

We use only robust Keemun tea from Anhui Province for our English Breakfast.
