This ultimate British favourite, AKA “builders brew” or “Rosy Lee”, is a renowned blend that 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.
English breakfast tea is a traditional black tea blend originating from Assam, Ceylon, and Kenya.
It is one of the most popular blended teas and the most common form of tea in British tea culture. It goes well with milk and sugar.
Drinking a blend of black teas is a longstanding British custom.
The practice of referring to such a blend as “English breakfast tea” appears to have originated not in England but America, as far back as Colonial times.
Other accounts gives its origins in Scotland, where it was initially known simply as “breakfast tea”, and was in part popularised by Queen Victoria herself.
Fill your cup or teapot to a third with cold water, then top up the remaining two thirds with freshly boiled water. Infuse leaves for three minutes and then add milk and sugar according to preference.
