1.1 pound / 500 grams packed in vacuum sealed foil bag for maximum freshness. Winston Churchill, arguably the most notable British Prime Minister in history, was a noted lover of drink. Although he is most known to have had a penchant for the strong stuff, namely whiskey, he also had an immense fondness for a cup of rich tasting English Breakfast. Palate aside, Churchill was also notable for good one-liners. One of his more famous quotes has to do with a nice British cuppa and is taken from a dialogue he had with Lady Nancy Astor, an American who became a member of the British Parliament. It should be noted that the two were not friends!

“Winston, if you were my husband, I’d poison your tea.”

“Nancy, if I were your husband, I’d drink it.”

Well, luckily for England Nancy didn’t follow through on her threat. Had she done so, we certainly hope that she didn’t intend to taint a cup of English Breakfast as savory and pure as this Organic variety. This is exactly the kind of tea Winston would have quaffed down by the pot-full. Blended using certified organic teas from Sri Lanka, China, and Tanzania, this tea is full bodied, astringent, with subtle touches of jammy toast. With a little milk and a dash of sugar, this tea makes a perfect compliment to a proper English breakfast (the meal!). Here’s to Winston, Nancy, and England!

(Like all of our Organic teas, no pesticides or chemical fertilizers were used in its production.)

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’

[if !supportEmptyParas] [endif]

Iced tea-brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
