Brewing instructions: 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag. 3 mins at 90-95ºC without milk, 3-5mins at 95-100ºC with milk. Just turn your kettle off before boiling if you don't have a temperature controlled kettle.
Good to know: Earl Grey is the most popular flavoured blend in the world and gets its name from Charles Grey, the Second Earl Grey who was British Prime Minister between 1830 to 1834.
The tea used for our Earl Grey comes from the Glendale Tea Estate, in which has heritage dating all the way back to 1835 - right around the time of Prime Minister Earl Grey.
Food pairing: The citrus notes from the bergamot oil work perfectly with smoked salmon, as well as dishes that include lemon, such as lemon drizzle cake.
Teasup 1 Breakfast Blend - 1,000g loose leaf
Our signature, award-winning English Breakfast Tea. The key is the speciality tea leaves - fine-plucked, high grown, smallholder tea from the best planting districts around Mt Kenya, high grown tea from the the Gisovu Tea Estate in Rwanda, and premium second flush Assam leaves from the Hunwal Tea Estate in India. The result is a rich, full-bodied tea with a lovely golden colour. Strength and briskness comes from the East African teas, balanced with the maltiness of Assam. Great with a dash of milk and a perfect way to start your day. Brewing instructions: 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag. 3-5mins at 95-100ºC with milk. Good to know fun fact: The first English breakfast blend actually comes from America! In 1843, Richard Davies, an English apothecary from Hull who had founded a small tea company in New York, made a new mix of tea that he called “English Breakfast”, and the people loved it! Food pairing: Extremely versatile and perfect with breakfast, whether its English or Continental, cakes or chocolate.
