English Breakfast Pyramid Tea Bags
Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
What could possibly be better than a good old-fashioned cup of English Breakfast Tea? How about a cup of English Breakfast Leaf Tea, using state-of-the-art Pyramid tea bags to ensure you obtain only the finest of flavours!
Although not currently as well-known as their traditional counterparts, Pyramid tea bags have been proven to be more efficient when making the perfect cup of tea. Since 1997, Pyramid tea bags have provided up to 50% extra space to allow the tea leaves to expand, thus improving the flavour and ultimately creating a better cup of tea. In fact, test results provided from a recent study have shown that the infusion of tea, at around 2 minutes into brewing, was greater when using a Pyramid tea bag than when using a normal tea bag!
In recent years, there has been much debate on the true origins of English Breakfast Loose Tea, despite being one of the most popular teas on the planet! One theory to its creation suggests that English Breakfast Tea didn’t originate from the British Isles at all, but instead the United States in the 19th century!
In 1843, it is said that this renowned beverage was created by Richard Davies in New York City, yet the sources associated with this story have been proven to be elusive at best, with many discrediting this story in favour of others closer to home.
Another, slightly more moderate tale finds English Breakfast Tea originating from Scotland. In this version, a tea master by the name of Drysdale came up with an idea for marketing his blend as “Breakfast Tea”. This concept soon spread to England after its huge popularity, and eventually, its name became associated with the country from where it was most consumed. Purists say that a proper English Breakfast Tea is a blend of Assam Tea and Ceylon Tea in equal proportion.
Whichever story you choose to believe, this blend has captured more than just the Nation from where its name is derived from! In fact, English Breakfast tea is now one of the most popular beverages in the world, with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company providing only the finest quality tea leaves in all our English Breakfast Tea brands. In particular, when choosing Pyramid tea bags, you can expect a far finer taste much more akin to loose leaf tea.

Is English Breakfast Tea Good for You?
While black tea is generally lower in overall polyphenols and catechins than Green Tea, it is still a good source of certain antioxidants such as thearubigins and theaflavins, due to the longer oxidation process of the leaves. Further to this, scientific studies have proven that the consumption of Black teas such as English Breakfast can aid in reducing the risk of cardiovascular-related diseases.
