Description

Chinese Breakfast Tea is a type of Black Tea from Yunnan Province, China. The grade is Flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP), which is somewhat subtler than Broken Orange Pekoe (BOP).

It is, therefore, a great choice first thing in the morning when you’re looking for an easy start. We can guarantee its best quality and consistency, too, due to the fact we pack it fresh to order.

Chinese Breakfast Tea Caffeine and Tasting Notes

When it comes to caffeine content, expect around 45-mg per 8-oz cup. Chinese Breakfast Tea, according to the latest scientific research, also comes with health benefits.

Most, however, brew it for its remarkable flavour, best described as strong, sweet, spicy and nutty. Whatever your reason for choosing it, you’ve decided well with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.

What is Chinese Breakfast Tea?

The idea of a breakfast blend doesn’t originate from China or even England - but Scotland. Some records suggest that it was a Tea master called Robert Drysdale who first came up with the concept, dubbing his creation “Breakfast Tea”.

The name of it, in fact, only changed after Queen Victoria paid a visit to the Scotsman, resulting in the word “English” being added to it!

We have since made our own versions - including that of our delicious, invigorating Breakfast Tea. If you’re looking to indulge in alluring flavours, to get an energy boost or to experience Black Tea benefits, you’ve come to the right place.

This beverage can offer this all and so much more. Why not discover for yourself by buying it today? You won’t be disappointed.

How to Brew Chinese Breakfast Tea in Four Easy Steps

1, Add Loose Leaf Tea to a Tea Infuser or Filter.

2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.

3, Put the kettle on and, once boiled, pour it over the leaves.

4, Allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes.

How to Serve: Milk, milk alternatives for tea, sugar, honey or lemon - the choice is yours. Alternatively, serve black.

Benefits of Chinese Breakfast Tea

Did you know that Chinese Breakfast Tea, like most types of Black Tea, can boost the metabolism of fat cells? This enables your body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently, thus resulting in weight loss (alongside a healthy and active lifestyle).

Additionally, it improves skin health due to its anti-inflammatory properties and likewise aids digestion.

And if that wasn’t enough, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, it supports the immune system.

The research in question found that Black Tea promoted the body’s defences against infection while priming the immune system to attack invading bacteria, viruses and fungi. Pretty neat for your new favourite beverage, wouldn’t you agree?

  9. I love Keemun but I was a bit disappointed with K&S's Russian Caravan and French Breakfast as they are very mild rather flavourless. Now I am happy with the Chinese breakfast, a unique blend of Yunnan and Keemun that has strong notes.
