Breakfast teathe most important drink of the day!

The tea world credits a Scottish tea master named Robert Drysdale as the creator of the style of breakfast tea we know and love today. In the late nineteenth century, he created a strong morning brew (later known as English Breakfast) to match the protein-rich traditional English breakfast.

Fast forward to today, and The Tea Centre’s breakfast teas have become the perfect way to start your day, and have been carefully selected to give you a morning boost! Full of traditional flavour, these teas are perfect on their own or with a dash of milk.

What is a breakfast tea?

With so many different types on the market, it’s no wonder the definition of breakfast tea is a little confusing! At the most basic level, breakfast tea is any black tea variety that uses leaves from multiple, international, tea-growing regions, and is blended with a certain country or region’s cultural taste in mind. You can find out more about breakfast tea and its history here.  

How to make a breakfast tea

To brew a perfect cup of loose-leaf breakfast tea you need to do the following.

  • Use one teaspoon or two grams of breakfast tea per 200ml of water.
  • Pour in water at 95°C.
  • Steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on how strong you want the brew to be.
  • Add a splash of milk or dash of honey if you would prefer your breakfast tea to be extra sweet. Otherwise, enjoy!
  • Breakfast teas are the ideal cuppa to kick-start your morning and present the perfect opportunity to relax during some well-deserved “me” time. Add breakfast tea to your kitchen cabinet at home and wake up to the variety of classic aromas and flavours of a freshly brewed breakfast tea.

    Pouring a mug of breakfast tea is also a generous gesture of hospitality and a wonderful way to welcome someone into your home. Get together with those you love with a cup of breakfast tea in hand and make them feel right at home.
