The Breakfast Club
Don’t you forget about tea.
Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t.
Don’t you start your day without tea!
Don’t judge this disparate group of teas by their appearance alone. As you drink each one, you’ll get to know their individual character traits all the while discovering what they have in common.
- Expectations are always high for English Breakfast, the most recognized flavor in the club. Assam, Ceylon, and Keemun teas have been perfectly blended achieving the renowned flavor profile year after year.
- Highland Breakfast is the most aggressive tea in the club. This rebellious, bold Assam will certainly wake you up, like a smack upside the head. If you find this bad boy too strong, a splash of milk settles it down.
- Dark, malty Irish Breakfast is the letterman of the club. Bold Assam broken orange pekoe wrestles earthy black tea from China to dominate the distinct flavor. Due to its strength, it’s common to add a splash of milk.
- Keemun Hao Ya is a principal character of the club. A haughty tea introduced in 1876 it’s known for its rich, full flavor and fragrant aroma. It is still processed much the same it was over 100 years ago.
- First impressions may lead you to assume Kenilworth Estate OP is the privileged one in the club. But you would be wrong. This classic orange pekoe is refined, indeed, with its long, gently twisted leaves. On the surface, it’s a bit brisk, yet its golden, fragrant flavor makes it undeniably approachable.
- Often ignored among the other blends, Mackin’s Blend is the lesser-known tea in the club. Although quiet and unassuming, combining teas from Sri Lanka, Kenya, India, and China will inevitably cause an outburst in flavor. Once you’ve tasted this blend, it can no longer be ignored.
