English Breakfast is a very British tea which was first blended and named in America by an English migrant, Richard Davis. According to another account, it was the creation of a Scottish tea expert by the name of Drysdale. Queen Victoria is said to have been an absolute fan of this blend so she brought it back to England where it was rather controversially named 'English Breakfast' This Great Taste Award winning full-bodied classic marries bold texture with rich flavour. Its smooth taste comes from hearty, malty teas of Assam and Ceylon blended with refreshing hints of muscatel from Darjeeling. Described by the judges at the Guild of Fine Food as having "attractive leaf and good liquor. Lovely malty Assam, and altogether good distinctive flavours that work well as a blend."
