English Breakfast from Cheeky Tea

English Breakfast from Cheeky TeaOne of my favourite blends in the whole World is good old English Breakfast – particularly first thing in the Morning . . . with, you guessed it, Breakfast!

Now, I’ll apologise in advance to the purists – I’m from Yorkshire, so I like mine with a good drop of milk. To me, English Breakfast just isn’t English Breakfast without it.

When Cheeky Tea’s English Breakfast dropped through my door, it had a lot to live up to. The benchmark on this blend is high – I’ve tried many, and only a select few make it into my treasured tea store.

So – let’s see if Cheeky Tea’s version makes the grade.

Upon opening, it has that classic, earthy, almost toasted aroma. The sign of a good Black Tea.

I steep the leaves, and the fragrance mellows but still lingers, leaving a lovely, mouth-watering toasty aroma in the air.

I add my obligatory drop of milk, and the colour of the tea transforms – to that most Brits are so familiar with when the word ‘tea’ is mentioned. A lovely, soft, light brown.

I take my first sip, and I know instantly, this is one English Breakfast I shall be consuming regularly! Malty, comforting, a very bold black tea with flavours that linger in your mouth for a long while after taking a sip.

Here’s what Cheeky Tea have to say about this blend:

Needing no introduction, this renowned blend contains nothing but rich, malty Assam and full-bodied Sri Lankan black tea for a brilliantly bright and bold cuppa that’s perfect at any time of day.

They say a cup of tea can make anything better. And this one certainly does just that – the liquid equivalent of comfort food, and something I would love to wake up to in a Morning accompanying a nice slice of toast and jam! Delicious.

Thanks for the lovely review, I think my favorite is the English Breakfast Tea as well. I love a good classic.

I have gotten quite fond of the green tea too, I never used to drink it but I find it really refreshing and it’s great if you’re suffering from the night before! 🙂

It’s important to be careful when brewing the green tea though, it can be easy to burn the leaves with the boiling water and create a bitter taste.

I’m really glad you reviewed our premium teas and appreciate the feedback.
