Description

Mornings wouldn’t be the same without English Breakfast Tea Bags. Each little pocket of goodness contains a blend of the finest Assam Tea and Ceylon Tea. When brewed, they offer a bold, lively flavour with malty notes - a true delight from beginning to end. We pack them fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, ensuring not only quality but also consistency.

The Story Behind English Breakfast Tea Bags

Did you know that our best English Breakfast Tea Bags likely owe their origins to Scotland, not England? 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 the tale remains a topic of considerable debate. Another theory exists - one originating not from the UK but 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!

How Much Caffeine in English Breakfast Tea Bags?

The amount of caffeine in English Breakfast Tea Bags is usually around 45-mg per serving. The question begs: Is this a good thing or a bad thing? It depends on your perspective. Should you be looking to cut down your intake, you might be better off with a Decaf or Herbal Tea.

On the other hand, if you need an extra energy boost, then you’ve chosen exceptionally well here.

Do English Breakfast Tea Bags Contain Plastic?

Microplastics in Tea Bags have come to the attention of many in recent years. This is because they cause significant damage to our environment and might even affect our own health.

The answer is simple. Step away from Plastic Tea Bags Microplastics and instead opt for our new-introduced Plastic Free English Breakfast Tea Bags. What more could you want from your favourite cuppa?

Benefits of English Breakfast Tea Bags

This will put a smile on your face: English Breakfast Tea Bags can improve oral health. The answers come from a collaborative study conducted by the College of Dentistry at the University of Iowa, USA, and the Institute of Odontology at Göteborg University in Sweden.

The research project concluded that Black Tea could reduce plaque formation and restrict bacterial growth. But that’s not all it offers.

For example, did you know that English Breakfast Tea Bags reduce the risk of cognitive decline? This is according to new research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. It stated that experts had conducted a study at the University of Singapore.

They, in turn, determined that those who drank 2-3 cups of any Black Tea a day had a 55% lower chance of experiencing cognitive decline.
