Tasting Notes

From our Chief Tea Taster

Aroma
Dense, sweetness of malt and honey followed by hints of high fired leaf.
Appearance
Dark Amber
Taste
This tea delights your imagination with classic sweet-smoky flavors of a timeless blend. The infusion is dense and sweet with redolence of malt and honey, peppered with a smoky hint that stays well into the finish.

Robust and smooth, a dash of milk uplifts the brew tremendously.

An always reliable, superb, breakfast blend

My favourite tea from Teabox. Always return to it after trying newer ones. A reliable standard - fresh and flavourful. Gives me a wonderful start to a day.

I keep leaving reviews of how much I appreciate these teas but not sure I am sending them properly. Hope so

Bursting with Flavour

The English breakfast loose leaf tea is actual leaf tea not the tea dust that some prestige brands pass as "tea". The quality of flavour of this tea is superb. No more going back to supermarket tea. Highly recommended.

Proper 'Builders' Tea!

Love the strength and taste of this tea...and much better than the tea-bag version. Have given to friends and they have become fans too.

McNeill Bishop (Culver City, US)
Tea flavor not great

The tea seems to be all the things they claim except I did not enjoy the flavor of the English Breakfast.

P
Peter Bailey (Saint Paul, US)
Fabulous Tea!

I love the tea you have sent!
- English Breakfast…strong and robust, perfect alone or as a base for Chai.
- Lavender Earl Grey….unbelievably fragrant, not from perfumes, but from the fresh lavender and bergamot…heavenly!

I wish you much success as you help heal the world, one cup of tea at a time!
