About French Breakfast Tea Superior

French Breakfast Tea is a combination of India and China’s finest. The Assam Tea in this blend, in particular, serves as a pillar of the country’s Tea industry. First discovered in 1823, this famous variety is indeed the reason why India has a Tea industry at all. It was a Scottish explorer and merchant named Robert Bruce who found the leaves growing in the region around 200 years ago.

The northern Himalayas, the Brahmaputra plains and the Deccan plateau surround Assam, creating one of the richest biodiversity zones in the world. It experiences heavy rainfall (2,500-3,000 mm annually) and high humidity throughout the year.

These make perfect conditions for the growth of Assam Tea - some of which finds its way into French Breakfast Tea Superior!

Keemun Mao Feng, meanwhile, comes from Qimen County, Anhui province, China. Its name, in fact, is an archaic English spelling of the region in which it grows. High elevations, low temperatures and high humidity contribute significantly to the quality of this Tea.

Nevertheless, despite its renown, Keemun Mao Feng (and all other Black Tea varieties from Qimen) only dates back to 1875.

It was a former Chinese civil servant named Yu Ganchen who first produced Keemun Tea. Months earlier, he had lost his job, and as such, in his shame, he had decided to become a Black Tea merchant.

Yu Ganchen travelled to Fujian province to learn more about the secrets of its production. Upon his return to Qimen, his endeavours proved to be a tremendous success! Indeed, French Breakfast Tea Superior, with the addition of Assam Tea as well, stands testament to that fact.

French Breakfast Tea Superior Benefit

Here’s an exciting new discovery: habitual Tea drinking (at least three times a week) could support a longer, healthier life! This is according to a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, which saw 100,902 participants split into two groups. The first group was comprised of volunteers who drank three or more cups of Tea a week. The second group, meanwhile, included those who drank less than three brews a week.

Both sets of test subjects were followed-up for a median of 7.3 years, the results ultimately establishing that 50-year-old habitual Tea drinkers had a 20% lower risk of developing coronary heart disease. Additionally, scientists noted that these same brew lovers could live up to 1.26 years longer than someone who never or seldom drank Tea.

  1. Love this tea - buy it regularly. It is quite different from the other French Breakfast you do but I like them equally.

  3. Really very nicely balanced blend of high-quality teas, but expensive. I let the first pot I brewed mostly go cold through inattention and felt very sorry; I should have enjoyed it all, at this price!

  4. Old French and Old Victorian blends are rare to find. I am satisfied with French Breakfast Tea Superior that corresponds to a classic 1860-1890 Victorian blend.

  8. I had been drinking Palais du Thes' Big Ben but this blend has a much richer kick to it without being simply strong for the sake of being a breakfast tea. Lovely. Just ordered a kilo.
