Our Breakfast Blend is a robust blend of Assam for it’s flowery flavour and Tanzanian for strength. The Assam is half CTC and half broken leaf orthodox. Compared to other blenders our breakfast tea emphasises the Assam. The result is the best of both worlds: leaf tea and CTC tea.
The 2 cup bags are normal strength and so best in a good sized mug. This tea makes a strong brew with a rich and full bodied flavour. Most of our retail and catering customers choose these bags
The 1 Cup tea bags are substantially smaller. At this strength the Assam dominates and the one cup bags can be used to make a finer lighter and more aromatic drink that will be appreciated by leaf tea drinkers.
Unlike our coffees, our teas are all sold pre-packed. We source them ourselves, cut and blend them if necessary on the premises before packing them is small runs.
Teas mixed on the premises include Organic Breakfast Tea and herbal blends like Sleepeasy.
Before being exported teas are usually processed at origin. Black teas are fermented while drying and Green Teas are dried faster and not allowed to ferment.
Of the fermented black teas the strongest are teas that go through the (self-explanatory) crush tear and curl process known as CTC. But even just having small sized pieces (ie fannings) can make tea stronger as the surface area is increased.
