The Story of Breakfast Tea
Did you know that Breakfast Tea likely owes its origins to Scotland, not England? Apparently, during a visit to Balmoral, Queen Victoria met Robert Drysdale, a Scottish Tea Master who had recently created a new blend.
Mr. Drysdale had already dubbed it “Scottish Breakfast Tea”; however, the Queen persuaded him to change it to “English Breakfast Tea”.
Whether there is any truth to this tale remains a topic of significant debate. Yet another theory also exists - this one originating from the United States! Rather than a Scotsman ‘inventing’ Breakfast Tea, it was, according to the story, made by a New Yorker named Richard Davies in 1843. The chances are we’ll never know for sure. We’re just glad that it happened!

Health Benefits of English Breakfast Tea Bags
This will put a smile on your face: English Breakfast Tea Bags can improve oral health. Research funded by the Tea Trade Health Research Association has suggested that it can reduce plaque formation, as well as restrict bacterial growth.
And they are not the only ones to say so, either. A collaborative study conducted in conjunction with the College of Dentistry at the University of Iowa and the Institute of Odontology at Göteborg University in Sweden has supported this idea - with evidence.
Participants in the US division used Black Tea to rinse their mouth with for 30 seconds, five times, waiting three minutes between each rinse to simulate the effect of supping a cup of Tea. The Swedish division, meanwhile, saw participants rinse their mouth with Black Tea for one minute, ten times a day.
Both co-operating studies discovered that the more participants rinsed, the more their plaque and bacteria levels fell. This happened because of polyphenolic compounds present in it that can kill or suppress cavity-causing bacteria from either growing or producing acid.
The Tea also affected the bacterial enzymes and prevented the formation of the sticky-like material that binds plaque to teeth.
