Our English Breakfast is a robust black tea with a bold, malty flavor; if you're looking for a "breakfast tea", this is it!
We use a Ceylon Orange Pekoe (OP) tea. Ceylon is the prior name of Sri Lanka, where this tea is grown. "Orange Pekoe" is the grading designation for a high quality tea picked from the youngest tea leaves on a plant (the "first flush"). In the 17th century, orange was the color of the Dutch Royal Family, so these high grade teas became named "Orange Pekoe" as a marker of quality - no orange flavor involved.
