Our English Breakfast Tea combines top-quality black teas from premier tea gardens. We blend bright Ceylon tea from Sri Lanka, malty Assam and smooth Nilgiri from India, and full-bodied Keemun from China. The result is a very distinctive, rich tea. It takes milk and sugar very well. This stimulating tea is the perfect morning wake-up drink. The prototype for English Breakfast was developed over a hundred years ago by the Scottish Tea Master Drysdale, in Edinburgh. Marketed simply as "Breakfast Tea", it became popular in England due to the craze Queen Victoria created for all things Scottish. Tea shops in London, however, changed the name and sold it as "English Breakfast Tea". English Breakfast has become a favorite of tea drinkers worldwide and is the tea most often enjoyed during English High Tea.
We actively maintain signed statements from our ingredient suppliers stating that all ingredients purchased by Stash Tea Company are gluten-free. We do not use barley malt in any of our blends.
Since 1972, Stash has been dedicated to providing premium quality teas. Our passion for quality teas is unmatched. We source from premier tea gardens, sampling hundreds of teas but selecting only a handful for our customers. We search for unique, often rare - and above all, exceptional - teas to share with you. For our herbal and flavored blends, we buy whole herbs and spices from the world's best sources and, for superior flavor, mill them right before blending.
To savor the full flavor of our teas, bring fresh water to a rolling boil. Pour hot water directly over the tea bag in a pre-heated pot or cup. Brew 3-5 minutes or to desired taste. One tea bag makes 8 ounces of hot tea. For iced tea, brew double strength.
